I don't know what the deal is lately....I'm not normally much of a sweets kinda gal. Way before I even started living a low carb lifestyle....It just wasn't my thing. I rarely craved or even ate sweets.
That's why it's extra weird that recently I want sweets more than I ever have in my life. And that's forced me to start experimenting with making my own LC versions which I'm actually having alot of fun doing. I never thought I would get into LC baking....I thought I would leave that to my sister..but here I am!
I've seen alot of sugar free recipes for peanut butter cookies out there...all very similar. I tweaked it a bit and subbed almond butter. Here's what I came up with
Low Carb Almond Butter Cookies
1 cup Almond butter (I used crunchy)
1 cup Stevia (or sweetener of choice)
2 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 TB. Coconut flour
Blend all ingredients together in mixer. Form into walnut sized balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Use a fork to flatten the balls in a criss cross pattern. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes Yield 12 cookies
They aren't super sweet....but I like that. you could add more sweetener if you like. But they come out nice and chewy....just how I like my cookies.
