Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cookies

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 the flavor, but something doesn’t taste right to me when I use only erythritol in recipes. 

In addition, stevia can taste bitter when used in recipes that require it to be baked.

Sugar alternatives!

For the best tasting cookies use a combination of erythritol and stevia to combat the harsh flavors that each can have when used alone.

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 for baking!

Sugar free and gluten free gives us LOW CARB peanut butter cookies!

Without the granulated sugar and flour you are left with a delicious low carb cookie!  Traditional peanut butter cookies are about 17 carbs each.  These babies are only 5 carbs each!

Swerve, Truvia, and Whole Earth Sweetener are some of the brands that I have tried 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.

The fiber helps lower the insulin spike, so for occasional treats this might be another option to use in baking!

This simple peanut butter cookie recipe is delicious just as written, but if you’re feeling adventurous test a combination of sweeteners!

I’m happy to be your test taster 🙂
