Who doesn’t love a warm, crispy PB & J sandwich? These cookies are so much better than the “real” thing that you may be tempted to substitute them for your sandwich in your lunch. And you could!
They are made with organic almond butter (see our recipe for making your own to save money and create delicious flavor), no gluten or grains, very low carbs and no sugar.
This low carb cookie recipe just might be our new favorite for four reasons:
- They taste amazing – think creamy nut butter combined with soft chewy cookie and topped with sweet tangy berry jam. YUM!
- They hold up well – this cookie doesn’t break or lose its form when transported (lunch box, back pack, etc.) yet maintains a soft inner core that stays chewy and moist.
- They are healthy – “Unbelievable!” is all we can say, that something this delicious can actually be healthy for you. On a side note we gave samples to kids to see if they would truly pass the taste test and they not only loved them but also kept asking for more! Funny thing was the parents had the same reaction.
- They are super easy to make – they only have a few ingredients and are really just stir and bake cookies. You could even experiment with various toppings or spices to change the taste without changing the texture and chewiness of the cookie.
Best part is they fill the after work craving for something sweet, satisfying and nutty that gives you the energy to get the rest of the day’s tasks accomplished without the drop in energy caused by sugar and carbohydrate rich foods.
Who doesn’t love making something you know will be healthy for your family, yet also be something they enjoy eating? These fit the bill but won’t last long because they taste so amazing.
Make sure to take them out of the oven when they are still a bit soft in the center but just slightly brown on the edges. They will settle more as they cool and can lose their chewy centers if they are cooked too long.
