The Best Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Have you noticed that almost all peanut butter cookies have a crosshatch pattern on the top? It sort of reminds me of a hashtag but of course, peanut butter cookies were happening long before the Internet. I am #OBSESSED with these sugar-free, lower fat, no white flour peanut butter cookies. Pressing the little hashtag design in the top of each cookie with a fork allows them to get a little crispy and extra yummy in those raised areas.

I've made 2 batches since New Year. We celebrated with one batch as we watched the ball drop New Year's Eve (Happy New Year Everyone!) and I gave the remainder of that batch to my neighbor but I couldn't stop thinking about them so I made another batch and this one I'm not sharing. They are #MineAllMine

Shelly's Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cookies 

1 cup Almond Flour (blanched, not meal)
2 Tablespoons Coconut Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/8 teaspoon Sea Salt
1/4 cup Butter, softened
2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Swerve, Granular
1 Large Egg, beaten
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preheat oven to 325. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. Cream softened butter and peanut butter (crunchy or creamy, whatever you love, just watch added sugars) with the Swerve until well combined. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract. Add dry ingredients and mix until dough comes together.

Roll the dough into 1 to 1-1/2 inch balls and place 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet. Press the balls down with the palm of your hand to about 1/2 inch thick and press the tines of a fork in a crosshatch pattern on the top.

They puff a bit but don't spread. Bake 20 minutes, until just barely beginning to firm up and are lightly golden on the bottom. Remove and let cool on the pan. They will firm as they cool. Makes 16-20 cookies.

If you make them, take a pic and post it on Instagram or Twitter. Add #Eggface I'd love to see.
