- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- ⅓ cup plus 1 TBSP Pyure (or Gentle Sweet or Homemade Pyure or other stevia blend) Or use ⅔ cup of a cup-for-cup sugar sub
- 1 large egg
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 ¾ cup sugar-free chocolate chips or two coarsely cut sugar-free chocolate bars (approximately 3 to 4 ounces per bar) (Homemade chocolate bars (“skinny chocolate”) may or may not work since they become liquid at room temperature….you will have to experiment.)
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Stir together all ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended.
- Fold in chocolate chips, chunks, or pieces.**
- Drop dough by small to medium cookie scoops (or roll into balls) 2 inches apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
- Press down on each cookie with the back of a spoon to flatten them some before baking.
- Bake at 350° convection for 10 to 12 minutes (12 to 15 minutes regular oven) until puffed and lightly browned.
- Cool on baking sheets on a wire rack 5 minutes.
- Transfer to wire rack, and let cool 15 minutes.
Very Low Carb (VLC): This is a fairly low carb recipe, depending on what peanut butter and chocolate chips you use. I haven’t found a low carb chocolate chip cookies that I just love—so these work well for me.
Family-Friendly (FF): Kids love these cookies—and actually will probably not notice they are sugar-free.
Store-Bought-Stella (SBS): Super fast recipe for chocolate chip cookies! Very few ingredients, which means that you will be more apt to make them often!
Homemade Hannah (HH): As mentioned with the SF-FF PB Criss Cross Cookies, this dough can also be used in many ways as the base for other things—cookie bars, cheesecake bars, and more.
Freezer Cooking (FC): These freeze fine. However, I have never been one to freeze cookies if I had the option of freezing cookie dough balls for hot cookies later. You do this through “flash freezing”—place all of the cookie dough balls on cookie sheets and freeze until solid. When frozen, transfer to zipper type bags, label, and try to stay out of them! 🙂
Trim Healthy Mama-Friendly (THM) (www.trimhealthymama.com): Great S treat. Not too carby, so can have a few of them! (See the nutritional label at the blog.) As mentioned above, it can be the basis for many, many THM S desserts.
Sugar Free (SF): Yep!
Gluten-Free (GF): Yes!
