Peanut Butter Almond Flour Cookies

Hello everybody! You know those peanut butter cookies I mentioned in my last Trim Healthy Mama update? Well, today I’m sharing the recipe that I threw together to make them! It’s easy and should give you about two dozen small cookies (I’m pretty sure I got 26 out of the batch I made, but I added chocolate chips to part of the dough.)

This recipe is a “S” for those of you who are following the Trim Healthy Mama plan. 😊

Peanut Butter Almond Flour Cookies

Ingredients:

1 stick softened butter

1/2 cup peanut butter

1 egg

1 cup almond flour

1 cup oat flour

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. baking soda

Sweetener to equal 1/2 cup sugar (or slightly more, if you prefer them sweeter)

Optional: 1 tsp. vanilla

Yield: about 24 small cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.*

Cream butter, peanut butter, and vanilla (if using), together in a bowl. Add the egg and mix again. Now add the almond and oat flours, salt, baking soda, and sweetener, and combine well.

Place the dough in small spoonfuls onto two baking sheets, and place in the preheated oven. Bake for about 8-9 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before removing from the pans. Enjoy!

*Notes: The reason vanilla is optional in the ingredients list is because I did not have any at the time I made these cookies, so I didn’t include it in mine, but they still tasted good, so it’s up to you whether you use it or not. You could also try cooking these at a lower temperature, say 325 degrees, to help avoid burning the bottoms of the cookies.

And that’s it! I hope you’ll enjoy these easy cookies, and be sure to check Instagram for videos and pictures that you might not see here on the blog!
