Equipment

  • Hand mixer

Ingredients

  • ½ cup (50g) almond flour
  • ½ tsp teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ tsp xanthan gum
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup (57g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • cup (65g) granulated sweetener, like Swerve or Sukrin
  • ½ cup (120g) all-natural peanut butter
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F (175C) and line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt, then set aside.
  • In another mixing bowl, beat the butter and sweetener until creamy using a hand mixer. Then add the peanut butter, egg, and vanilla extract and beat again until fully incorporated.
  • Add the dry ingredients to wet and mix well until no dry ingredients are left. The dough should be firm enough to form balls.
  • Scoop 10 scoops of the dough, or roll 10 even balls (around 2 tbsp or 30g each), and place onto the baking sheet leaving some space in between. Bake for about 12-15 minutes on the middle rack until golden brown around the edges.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool down for at least 10 minutes (the cookies will be very soft right after baking; they will firm up during the cooling process) before placing on a cooling rack to cool down completely.
