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.

For the best peanut butter cookies use a combination of erythritol and stevia to combat the harsh sugar flavors.

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!

Sugar alternatives for tasty low carb peanut butter cookies!

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 🙂
