    Just the tasty recipe needed to replace standard peanut butter cookies! Thank you!

  2. I was just thinking about peanut butter cookies for holidays. And saw this recipe. So I of course I had to try it. I made them & was so pleased to have a healthy cookie. The cookie was delicious, it wasn’t as pretty as the picture but none the less very delicious. I will be using this recipe along with the ginger Keto cookie. Thank you so much for sharing recipes….keep them coming!

    Mine did not turn out as pictured they were swimming in a pool of oil😐could something be wrong with my almond butter? Or could the 2 tbls of flour be a typo and should be more than that?

    • Deanna DAndrea says:

      I also made these Almond Butter Cookies. There must be a typo on the amount of Almond flour. Because, I had a mess. I think I will add 2 cups of Almond flour.

    • Kathy says:
