Peanut butter cookies

IMG_0379I was on a serious hunt for carbs today, I even text my boyfriend telling him I didn’t care I just wanted cookies…So I made cookies that I could just about afford to have today on a low carb day. These delicious little gems have only 3.1g net carbs, were so quick and easy to make, and meant I didn’t end up binging on naughty foods.

Ingredients

  • 30g Coconut flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum
  • Pinch salt
  • 10g Vanilla whey protein powder
  • 10g Carob fruit syrup  (you could easily replace with Agave)
  • 75g Natural peanut butter
  • 15g Dark chocolate chips
  • 50ml  Unsweetened almond milk

Method

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees and line a cookie sheet with tin foil/baking parchment.
  2. Gently mixing the coconut flour, baking powder vanilla whey protein, salt and xantan gum together.
  3. Add the carob/ agave along with the peanut butter and mix until combined.
  4. Add in the almond milk a little at a time, 50ml should create a perfect dough like texture soft enough that it can be mouldable without falling apart.
  5. Add the chocolate chips to the mix and separate the dough into 6 balls. Roll the balls in the palm of your hands and flatten down into a disc shapes, before placing onto the prepared cookie sheet.
  6. Bake in the oven for 10/15 minutes until they colour up golden brown. Leave to cool and enjoy!
