Sugar-free, THM-S and Keto!
These bad boys are pure peanut butter heaven!
But before I get into the recipe, let me just talk a minute about guilt-free eating!!!
Eating Guilt Free
Can I just say, I eat like a queen! I get to eat absolutely delicious food every day…and all because of the food freedom found through THM (trim healthy mama)! This lifestyle truly has become such freedom! Not only do I get to eat yummy cookies like these all the time, but I get to experiment and create such fun dishes and recipes because I understand the “science” behind eating healthy!
Here are some reasons why I love the THM lifestyle…
The list goes on and on…
If you haven’t looked into THM, I highly suggest you do!
Here’s their website, and here is a link to buy the book>>>
My husband loves it too! He gets to eat yummy cookies, cakes, mouth-watering meats and veggies, delicious casseroles, breakfast goodies and the list goes on and on. All guilt-free! He calls himself the “trim healthy man”, of course, but he loves to tell his buddies about eating this way too!
Trying to get him to take a serious picture is pretty much impossible! (Isn’t he handsome?!? 😉
Be sure to look out for my post on THM and why we do it in our home. 🙂
Cookie Model #2
This is my youngest boy. His name is Josiah. He is my bundle of energy, and my risk-taker! He loves to wrestle with his brothers, climb trees outside, ride his bike, play out in the back field for hours and mostly just get in to trouble in whatever way he can find. 🙂
He always has some sort of scrap or bruise from his excessive need for speed and adventure, just like in these pictures. But, he does keep us on our toes, and we think he is such a blessing!
Would you look at those eyes though! I’m sure we will be “boarding up the doors” to keep the girls away, very soon!
Needless to say, these cookies are a hit! They just have such an amazing texture! You seriously cannot tell that they are sugar-free and only made with almond flour!
There is a “secret” ingredient though… Z’s 3 ingredient Peanut Butter Recipe (keep an eye out for the recipe). Yes, I made the peanut butter from scratch!!
I cannot say enough about my amazing Vitamix blender! It literally took me under 2 minutes to make scrumptious homemade peanut butter! And, it proved to be infinitely better than store-bought natural peanut butter!
This is the blender that I have, and they are having a sale, so you’re in luck!! Just click on the link right here to look at the possibility of owning your own amazing blender!!! Such an awesome investment!

Back to the recipe….
I did use my homemade peanut butter for this recipe, but you can use any peanut butter of your choice. I suggest a natural no-sugar-added peanut butter, to keep it in a sugar-free state.
Another note I might add is that, after you take them out of the oven, let them cool completely before handling them. I just left mine on the cookie sheet. They tend to keep their texture better that way.
They turn such a beautiful golden brown around the edges after they come out of the oven, yet they stay nice and chewy in the middle!
Hope you enjoy them as much as my family and I did!
