Clean Peanut Butter Cookies

I don't know what it is lately, but I have become infatuated with sunrises and apparently think I'm a photographer, because I can't help but take pictures of them!


This is the sky I was greeted with after my cardio session this morning... totally awesome, right!? I know you are far more intrigued by the title of this post than my stellar photography skills, so let's move on to the important stuff: Peanut Butter Cookies.


I was actually just playing around in the kitchen [a favorite past time of mine] when I remembered I had all natural peanut butter in the pantry leftover from Halloween. This recipe is really simple but so delicious!

Ingredients:
2 egg whites
1/2 cup Truvia
1 cup oat flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup all natural peanut butter
1tsp baking soda
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl and mix well-- dough should be fairly "dry" looking.
3. Form balls out of dough by rolling it in your palms and place on prepared cookie sheet.
4. Using a fork, make criss-cross lines on top of cookie.
5. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown- recipe makes 5 large cookies


I wouldn't keep these in my house all the time, because, well I would probably make and eat a whole batch every day. But they are nice to have around when you get a craving for sweets!

  2. YUM! I tried to make paleo-ish almond butter cookies tonight, but they left something to be desired! Yours look like WINNERS! :)

  3. Tried these just now. I'd make a couple changes next time as there is way too much baking soda. That's nearly all I taste :( Mine never did get a dry appearance in order to roll either so I ended up adding about an extra 1/2 cup of oat flour. Not sure what the difference was. I double checked all the ingredients. Anyway, hoping next time I'll get the mix down better. Thanks for sharing

  5. Clean Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

    1 Cup Natural PB (Can sub almond butter)
    1.5 Scoops Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (I used ISO-100 in vanilla for this recipe)
    1 Whole Egg
    1/2 Cup Sugar Substitute (I used Stevia) The amount is dependent on your sweet tooth, I only use 3 small packets of stevia.
    1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Creme Liquid Stevia
    1 Tablespoon Water

    Mix the wet ingredients first, then add the peanut butter. Once it’s combined, slowly add in the protein powder. It will create a cookie dough. Seperate dough into 12 cookies spaced evenly on the sheet and use a fork to press them down. Pre-heat oven to 350. Spray a baking pan with Pam. Bake for 9-11 minutes.

    They’re only 80 calories, sugar free and have only a few ingredients! Several taste tests and got two thumbs up! Let me know what you think.

  6. I had the same problem. The mix was really runny and I double check the measurements twice. Not sure what happened. Even added 1/2 cup more of osts flour so I made peanut butter bars since I couldn't roll the dough.
