Healthy Recipe: Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

admin - November 11, 2014



Flourless peanut butter cookie recipe.

Flourless cookies sound too good to be true? Think again! These simple cookies only have 5 ingredients, but we assure you that they aren’t short on flavor!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies (click to access the full recipe with instructions and preparation information)

  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup of sugar (you can substitute for stevia or a natural sweetener)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • Coarse sea salt (just for sprinkling)

 

Did you know? Benefits of Peanut Butter

Eating a 2 tablespoon serving of peanut butter gives you 2 grams of fiber. Adequate consumption of fiber is important for the healthy functioning of your body and of course you can get more fiber from other meals but peanut butter can help supplement this.

Also, a serving of peanut butter packs in 7 grams of protein, making it perfect for breakfast or a mid morning meal choice. When you choose to eat protein, you feel fuller for longer and is essential for building and repairing muscles.

We know that peanut butter has a high fat content, but what’s important to note is that it is high in unsaturated fat. When consumed in moderate amounts, eating peanut butter can actually help improve your heart health.

Making sure to consume the right kind of fat can help benefit any diet. Maintaining a regular intake of protein, fruits, veggies, whole grains and healthy fats can very well reduce the risk of stroke, cancer, heart diseases, and diabetes.

    My mother gave me this recipe about 30 years ago. She also put chocolate stars on the cookies right out of the oven.
