What? Cookies that don’t send your glucose levels sky high?  Yep!  These babies are made with a combination of stevia and organic erythritol, which is a non-GMO sugar alcohol from fruits and vegetables.  Erythritol adds sweetness like sugar without causing a spike in blood sugar, plus there is almost zero calories in erythritol.

Erythritol used exclusively leaves a cool sensation in your mouth, which tastes a little off.  It’s hard to explain, but something doesn’t taste right to me when I use only erythritol in recipes.  Stevia on the other hand can taste bitter.

I found a perfect way to cancel the harsh sugar flavors by using a combination of erythritol and stevia in this sugar free peanut butter cookie recipe.

These sugar free peanut butter cookies are made with a natural alternative to granulated sugar that won't spike glucose levels! #cookies #lowcarb | www.thefoodieaffair.com

Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cookies are rolled in Monk Fruit adding a caramel flavor

Have you noticed all the varieties of sugar alternatives that are available in grocery stores?  I’ve been experimenting with a lot of different brands. My favorite brands combine sugar alcohol and stevia just like I have.

The duo is the best tasting blend of low-carb sweetness!

I have used Swerve, Truvia, and Whole Earth Sweetener, which is in these Carrot Cake Protein Pancakes (YUM) and this Lower Sugar Homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer.

I also found a new brand called Sugar 2.0.  Now this brand is a little different.  Sugar 2.0 is a combination of real cane sugar and non-gmo soluble corn fiber.  Fiber helps lower the insulin spike, so for occasional treats this might be another option to use in baking!

You’ll love this simple peanut butter cookie recipe just as written, but if you’re feeling adventurous test a combination of sweeteners!  I’m happy to be your test taster 🙂

Simple sugar free peanut butter cookies are sure to be your favorite low carb treat! #sugarfree #dessert | www.thefoodieaffair.com
