Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sharing is caring!


I have tried this recipe with using just peanuts and grinding my own butter, and also with a jar of peanut butter.  The version with the ground nuts wins hands down over the already made peanut butter which I suspect is due to the oils added to the jar.  The short story is make your own peanut butter.  It’s just so simple to make and delicious too.  Throw a couple of cups of peanuts into the food processor, blitz until you have a butter.  You can sweeten it to your own taste without any nasty additives thrown in.   These are currently the number 1 cookie recipe in our house.  What amazes me is just how easy they are to make.  Although I add high cocoa chocolate chips to the mixture, these cookies would be just as delicious without them and perhaps some added seasoning.  Cinnamon perhaps?

They are just lovely the next day and seem to firm up when left in the fridge, keeping their soft centre.  The joy of cookie baking using nut butters!  Gluten free and low carb goodness in cookie form!

    Greetings! I love your recipes. I just found out how to make almond butter in the food processor, that if you do not toast the nuts, it will turn into sand. I, too have a Taste tester, he seems to be a brother from another muther to yours,
    My doctor says pesticides have poisoned the peanut plant roots, it’s so sad. 🙁
    I was looking for a good nut butter recipe so I am excited to try your recipe. Thank you so much! Take care…

    Hi, do the peanuts need to blitzed until they get to a butter consistency?
    And can any other nuts be used instead of peanuts?

      Hi Amina, yes they do need to be a soft butter consistency. You can use other nuts too…I love using pecans but cashews are great too!

        Thanks for your quick response, just one more thing as I use xylitol as my sweetener would i need to use the same amount as erthyritol?

          I use the same amount. I think that Xylitol is a bit sweeter than Erthyritol, but it might come down to individual tastes.

    It’s a little difficult to keep hubby on this diet. He does it but craves the foods he used to love, and still loves!
    This is one he loves! I’ll try this soon!
    So surprised this has no flour equivalent in it!

      Hope he enjoys it! Don’t think of it as a diet, as that suggests self deprevation! Think of it as a new way of eating! And you can still enjoy tasty treats such as these!

        I find it very easy. And I always refer to it as our ‘new life’. But he misses potatoes esp fries, bread and sugar in general. I’m an RN and have educated him about keto and he understands, but…
        He has lost 30 pounds since November and is off of his statin, antacid-anti reflux drug and just recently, his blood pressure med! He knows how good this is! And he’ll tell anyone he’s not hungry eating this way.
        It’s like there’s this little kid inside him that just demands what he wants! LOL!
