Growing up I loved homemade peanut butter cookies. I randomly had a craving for them the other day but was out of peanut butter (which is a rarity in this house) but I did have a jar of almond butter.

To create this recipe, I took a traditional peanut butter cookie recipe and made a few swaps:

  1. I used almond butter in place of peanut butter.
  2. I also halved the amount of sugar and swapped table sugar for coconut sugar.

The swaps turned out to be a success. They’re a little crumbly, but my almond butter was almost empty and a little dry so I figure that’s where it came from. I noticed that when I ate them warm they crumbled but once they cooled they were fine.

3 Ingredient Cookies

This easy cookie recipe has only 3 ingredients:

They’re gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free yet they taste great.

Why Coconut Sugar?

Coconut sugar is lower on the glycemic index than white sugar. Coconut sugar has a GI of 35 (source) whereas traditional white sugar has a score of 63 (source). This simply means that after ingesting it, your blood sugar won’t spike as high as it would with white sugar. This will lead to fewer cravings and random hunger later.

It also has a few more nutrients like iron, zinc, and calcium than white sugar but the amounts are minimal.

Coconut sugar is still sugar, something that we should consume in minimal amounts. It’s the same calorie wise as table sugar and is still an added sugar. I simply prefer to bake with it.

The best part of this recipe? It’s all thrown together in a blender and ready in seconds.

I try make as much as I can in my blender because it’s easier to clean (just add soap and water into the blender, blend, rinse).

Any recipe that means less dishes is a winner in my book (and it will soon be a winner in your book too when I’m done writing the much anticipated Nutrition Guide).

So tell me, what’s your favorite cookie recipe? Did you grow up on peanut butter cookies and milk like I did?
