When it comes to sweets I am a big fan of cookies. Cakes, pies, and rolls are not my thing just give me the cookies! Crispy cookies are my absolute favorite, but when trying to stay of the sweet stuff I just can’t give up them up! I use to buy a lot of sugar free cookies all the time, but why buy when you can make them and they won’t taste like cardboard!
Biscotti was a cookie I fell in love with making during Christmas and I wanted to make a healthier version of the cookie that had no butter, sugar, or oil. After a few mistakes and adding peanut butter to the batter! I finally got healthy crispy biscotti that you can eat every day! So eat up without the guilt!
Peanut Butter Biscotti Recipe:
1 ¾ cups flour (plus more for dusting)
1tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
½ cup peanut butter (I used chunky)
1 tsp. vanilla
¾ cups coconut sugar
4 tbsps. powdered stevia
½ cup egg whites
Recipe Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees; sift dry ingredients and set aside. In a large bowl add eggs, coconut sugar, stevia, peanut butter, and vanilla; mix until all the wet ingredients are combined. Add dry and wet ingredients together mixing until the dough is formed. Place on a floured surface mixing until the dough is no longer sticky. Roll out dough into two cookie logs and flatten; place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the oven for 20 minutes and let cool for 10 minutes. Once cool cut the cookie logs cross wise into ½ inch slices. Bake for 5-10 minutes on each side. Cookies should be slightly toasted.
