This is that one cookie recipe you should always have on hand for the kids, yourself, and for get-togethers! These classic peanut butter cookies are SO easy to make and only require 3 simple ingredients. Plus, they’re gluten free, grain free, and I’m going to give you a low carb option if you’re watching your carb intake.
Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
For this cookie recipe, I recommend using creamy peanut butter, but feel free to crunchy if that’s what you prefer. Additionally, I prefer using raw cane sugar in this recipe, especially if I’m making it for others.
But, if you’re watching your sugar/carb intake, then you can substitute the cane sugar with a low carb granulated sugar, such as Birch Xylitol, Monk Fruit, Erythritol, etc. It’s a 1:1 swap.
And, each cookie only contains about 140 calories when using the cane sugar. It’s even less if using the low carb sweetener. So, they make for the perfect low calorie snack. And, since they’re full of healthy fats, they’ll also keep you full between meals.
I love making these cookies when friends and family come to visit because both kids and adults love them! They’re rich, chewy, and so satisfying!
