Coconut peanut butter cookies

Do you know the best thing about these low-carb Coconut Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate? It’s got to be the fact that one cookie only contains 2.5 g of carbohydrates. How is that possible?! 

As with most cookies, I’ve got to admit that they are at their most delicious when they are very fresh. If you store them in a sealed storage box, they will soften a bit. They’re still very tasty, but have more of a cake texture.

Ingredients

For 12 cookies
  • 120 g peanut butter
  • 20 g coconut oil
  • 75 g Zùsto
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sodium bicarbonate
  • pinch of salt
  • 60 g desiccated coconut
  • 35 g dark chocolate callets

Equipment

  • blender 
  • baking paper
  • baking tray

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the baking paper on a baking tray. Set aside. 
  2. Put the peanut butter and the coconut oil in a blender and blend together. Add the eggs and vanilla extract. Add the sodium bicarbonate and salt.
  3. Finally, add the desiccated coconut and the Zùsto. Continue to mix until all of the ingredients are well blended.
  4. Spoon in the chocolate drops.
  5. Scoop 30 g mounds of the mixture onto the baking tray. Make sure you leave plenty of space between the mounds. Then bake the cookies for +/- 8 min until the top turns golden brown.
  6. Let the cookies cool on a wire rack. The cookies will still harden slightly as they cool. They will be a little crispy around the outside and then soft inside. If you store them in a sealed box, the cookies may soften. They then start to become a little more like a cake. Obviously, they’re still very tasty!

About Yasmine Marchal

Hi, I’m Yasmine from the pastry blog Tartes Yaya. As well as running my blog, I work full time as an IT project manager. Baking is my creative outlet, but I also enjoy sports (jogging, hiking, aerial dance and horse riding).

I’m mum to an 8 year old boy, Ilyas, and a 6 year old girl, Fatou. In August 2018, Ilyas was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (an autoimmune disease that is not caused by eating too much sugar… just to clarify that! ;)).Even though a type 1 diabetic can eat whatever they want and don’t have to follow a special diet, their body has greater difficulty in processing real sugars because the body is not able to produce insulin itself or manage insulin spikes properly.

My son’s diabetes led me to discover Zùsto and since then, Zùsto has been my favourite sugar substitute!
