Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies with Dark Chocolate

(makes 12 small cookies)

  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips (about 40g)

  • 1/3 cup peanuts (I’m using salted peanuts)

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

  • Optional: 1-2 tbsp sugar substitute of your choice (I’m using maple syrup. I’ve tried making these with 2 tbsp of sugar too, and they come out great.)

  • Optional: 1/2 tsp vanilla essence or vanilla sugar

  • Optional: a pinch of salt

Pre-heat your oven to 170C.

Start by chopping up your peanuts. If you’re using dark chocolate from a slab, cut this into smaller chocolate-chip-sized pieces.

Mix everything together in a bowl.

On a baking tray lined with baking paper, add heaped teaspoons of the cookie dough. Readjust some of the cookie dough if needed, so the cookies are somewhat even. Flatten with the back of your teaspoon.

Bake in a 170C, preheated oven, for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. They might look a little bubbly or like there’s liquid coming out of them when you take them out of the oven. Once they’re cooled down, they’ll have a satisfying snap and crunch to them.
