Low Carb, Keto, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Soy Free

My husband has been asking me to make peanut butter cookies for ages! I’m not sure why I’ve waited so long to make them. Maybe because I can’t eat peanuts? I suppose that’s a good thing though since that means I can’t scarf them all down.

Of course, he wanted a traditional peanut butter cookie made with refined flour and sugar. But you know me better than that, don’t you?! I don’t even have those ingredients in my pantry!

So I went on a quest to make a peanut butter cookie that was both grain free and refined sugar free. I wanted to use coconut flour since I think it has a nice sweetness to it which goes well with baked goods.

Overall, the cookies turned out delicious! They had a really nice peanut butter flavour to them and the kids had no idea they were actually healthy.

Hubby liked the taste but wasn’t a huge fan of the coconut flour texture. He is definitely a work in progress when it comes to my low carb way of eating. He would choose the refined sugar, refined flour cookie every time, whereas my goal is to make a healthier treat that still tastes delicious. If my kids and I will eat it and love it, then in my mind, I’ve succeeded.
