Ingredients

  • For the frosting:

  • 1/2

    cup light cream cheese,

  • 1/2

    cup peanut butter,

  • 1/2

    cup butter.

  • Sweeten to taste. I used 1/2 tsp pure stevia. (I have a major sweet tooth.)

  • For the cookies:

  • 3

    cups almond flour,

  • 1/4

    tsp real salt,

  • 1/2

    tsp baking soda,

  • 1/2

    tsp pure stevia,

  • 1 1/2

    cup peanut butter,

  • 1

    cup egg whites.

Directions

Frosting: Let them all soften and mix well. Set to the side. Cookies: I mix it all up with a fork, rolled 1 1/2 inch (approximate) size balls and flattened them to the thickness I wanted them (like 1/4 of an inch). They spread very slightly. I baked these around 13 min. in a preheated 350 degree oven (until they looked toasty). They were crunchy and moist. Not flaky, not sticking to the roof of my mouth. Really, I have to say, I shocked myself. The texture was perfect. Things always work out better for me when I eyeball things so I hope these turn out for you. Happy baking!
