A Sugar Breakup team member is from West Virginia, USA and he’s been missing his Mum’s baking – especially her peanut butter cookies.
So we decided to create a sugar free peanut butter cookie recipe using our dextrose,Golden Rice Malt Syrup, & Ridiculously Delicious Peanut Butter.
The cookie dough alone was absolutely delicious so we knew we were onto a winner!
Best eaten fresh on the day or placed into the freezer for future use, these cookies will be a favourite for all the family.
- Makes: 35 cookies
- Oven temperature: 180°C (170°C if using fan forced)
- Baking time: 10 minutes
1 ½ cups of plain flour
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
100g softened butter
½ cup smooth Ridiculously Delicious Peanut Butter
½ cup The Sugar Breakup Dextrose Powder
½ cup The Sugar Breakup Organic Golden Rice Malt Syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
How to make these ridiculously delicious peanut butter cookies:
- Preheat oven to 170°C. Line baking trays with baking paper. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt, and set aside.
- Cream the butter and peanut butter together until light and smooth. Add the Golden Rice Malt Syrup and dextrose powder and mix until it’s smooth. Then beat in the egg and the vanilla extract.
- Place the butter mixture into a large mixing bowl and add the dry mixture a third at a time. Mix well by hand using a spatula. Set aside for 30 minutes.
- Roll spoonfuls (20g) of mixture into balls and place on trays, 3cm apart. Flatten with a fork.
- Bake for 10 mins until they’re golden in colour. Cool for 10 mins and then transfer to a wire rack.
Ridiculously Delicious Peanut Butter comes in Super Smooth and Chunky Crunch, and it’s a healthy sugar free Peanut Butter, and it’s delicious!
You can now make these awesome cookies nut free for school! Here’s how:
- Drain and thoroughly rinse a 400g can of chickpeas under running water.
- Using a stick blender or food processor blitz half the chickpeas into a smooth paste (use the other half in dinner or a salad). This will make approximately 1/2 cup of chickpea paste.
- Replace the peanut butter with the chickpea paste and continue with the recipe. If the cookie mix is stickier with the chickpea paste just dollop on the baking tray using a spoon.
- Freeze & pop into school lunchboxes in the morning. They will be defrosted by snack time.
Thanks Julia :) I just tried it again using chickpeas this time instead of the peanut butter for (peanut free) school lunches and they worked (although more salt next time!). Batter was a little stickier but fine once cooked :) thanks again
That’s an awesome idea Erin! I’m going to rush to the kitchen now & see if I have a can of chickpeas in the pantry. I’m guessing you just blitzed the chickpeas in the TM until they were smooth. Can’t wait to try them (and test them out on the kids!!)
ha ha!! Yep still followed the same recipe – creamed butter and chickpeas together. I only used a little over half a cup of the chickpeas but I reckon I could have chucked in the whole can since there wasn’t that much left. Mine were probably a bit stickier because I remembered after I posted that comment that I only had a tiny bit of dextrose left so I put in extra RMS.
These were fantastic! Have been looking for a good fructose free recipe for ages and none of them have worked out very well or had too many crazy ingredients! These are still the consistency of the average biscuit recipe and so versatile! So thank you for the recipe. Any thoughts to make recipes thermomix friendly by giving ingredients in weight rather than cups?! I can convert the recipe but am being lazy with the measuring! :)
Great news! Yep there’s always a place for a good biscuits without crazy ingredients. We’re TM users too so will try a little better with putting in the weights. Cheers Julia
Is this meant to use baking powder or soda? The recipe states both interchangeably.
Please use baking powder. Thanks for letting us know.
I baked these today using a Hazelnut and Cacao spread – soooo yummy!!! Best cookie recipe ever! xx
Dear Teagan, it’s my favourite biscuit recipe too!! Our American team member reckons they taste just like home. Fiona
Have just made these biscuits – half original recipe and half batch with added Cacao! Great for lunch box treats and quick after dinner snack! Will freeze the some of the mixture for fresh biscuits another day! Thanks so much for the recipe! xx
Dear Teagan, That’s great news. I love them with cacao too. Please enjoy! Send through a photo of your cacao cookies, I’d love to see them.
Have just added a photo to your facebook page! I added some mixed spice to some of the cookies too – this recipe is so versatile!!! I will try replacing the peanut butter with my homemade coconut butter and see if that works! thanks again xx
They sell it with the gluten free products of Coles – in a wide screw-top jar
Those look great. I’ve always wondered what cookies taste like without sugar.
These cookies look and taste like the real thing. Give them a try they’re so easy to make and you’ll love them.
where can we get the golden rice malt syrup – not in your shop?
Hi Ruby, thanks for the question. Our Organic Golden Rice Malt Syrup is almost here!! Keep your eyes peeled over the next couple of days for an update to our shop. So excited.
