Xylitol-Sweetened, Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Fresh baked, homemade peanut butter cookies and milk.

If you’re trying to avoid excess sugar, that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice sweet treats! Xylitol is a wonderful, all-natural sugar substitute with a number of health benefits. It’s metabolized without insulin, giving it a low glycemic index and can even help promote healthy dental hygiene.

This recipe uses xylitol instead of sugar and makes about 2 dozen small cookies.

You will need:
1 large egg
1 cup Xylo-Sweet
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup creamy, natural peanut butter
1 tsp. water
1/3 cup chopped peanuts or these sugar-free chocolate chips* (optional)

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use an electric beater to mix the egg, Xylo-Sweet, baking powder and vanilla for about a minute. Then add in the peanut butter and water mix them together. *Note: the mixture is fairly dry. Be sure the peanut butter is mixed well with the other ingredients.
  • Add peanuts or chocolate chips if using and blend into dough.
  • Use a large non-stick cookie sheet. Measure out a heaping teaspoon of batter for each cookie, roll into a ball, and then smash down with a fork.
  • Bake 15 minutes, or slightly longer, until cookies feel firm and are slightly browned.

This is a quick and easy recipe when you’re in need of that sweet fix. If baking isn’t your forte, try these amazing low-sugar, gluten-free, dairy free cookies from Simple Mills.
