Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Cookies



grain free, gluten free, sugar free

 

 

These are so simple to make and perfect for peanut butter lovers! The powdered sweet potato helps to act as a flour and adds extra nutrition.

My husband loves peanut butter so I wanted to make him a treat. If you have read our other blogs you know we are doing the True Cellular Detox which is kind of a modified Ketogenic diet. It really limits treats with no sugar besides sugar alcohol so that is why we use xylitol. You can sub regular brown sugar 1:1 if you want.

These cookies are low carb with only 4 net carbs. We did not use any sugar besides the very small amount of moleasses and the natural sugars from the sweet potato so there is 1 g of sugar. When you compare that to an average peanut butter cookie at around 16 g of sugar you can't beat it. These are also a pretty good source of healthy fat and protien from the peanut butter and eggs.

They are easy and make the house smell great while they are cooking. Hubby and the whole family loved them. Hope you like them too!
