Heart shaped low carb peanut butter cookies

It’s valentines day! I decided yesterday to make some cookies for the very first time for my family. I decided to try these flourless peanut butter cookies and…. it was a success! Everyone in my family loved it. So there are official no cookies left for valentine’s day (haha).

This was also my first time making cookies EVER. I’m so glad I tried them, I was so afraid I was gonna ruin them. I didn’t have a heart shaped baking mold so I made one out of aluminum foil. The top of mine wasn’t smooth because the peanut butter was extra chunky. Secondly, my cookie dough was a bit soft and I didn’t want to add more peanut butter to keep the carbs down. I poured it into the mold which worked perfectly.

This was a delicious low carb peanut butter cookies and perfect treat for my valentines… my family. If any of you try this, please send me a picture or tag me on instagram so I can see your creation. Happy Valentine’s day everyone!

Ingredients

  • ½ cup peanut butter (I used chunky peanut butter)
  • An egg
  • 1 tbsp splenda (or your choice of sweetener. You can adjust the sweetness to your liking)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract or almond and rose water unsweetened (I used almond and rose water)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven at 355 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat
  2. In a bowl, combine the peanut butter, sweetener, egg, baking powder, cinnamon and vanilla/ almond water. Mix it all together. If the batter is a little runny then add more peanut butter
  3. Take some of the dough and roll into a ball. Using a heart shaped baking mold, press cookie dough inside it to shape the cookie into hearts. Repeat this process with all the cookie dough
  4. Place the cookies on the sheet and bake for 10 minutes in the oven (if it isn't quite done at 10 minutes, bake it a bit longer for about 15 minutes. Be careful not to burn the cookies)
  5. Once the cookies are done, remove from the oven and let it cool for a while before serving.
