- 250 grams peanut butter warmed
- 3 tbsp xylitol or erythritol sweetener
- 1 medium egg
- Preheat your oven to 180°c (fan)
- Add all the ingredients into a bowl
- Mix well so that the mixture combines and creates a big (but very soft) dough like ball
- Roll out balls of dough the size of walnuts and place on baking parchment paper on a baking tray
- Using a fork, gently press the dough ball to squash it and create a pattern on the cookie, then press the fork in the opposite direction to create a criss cross pattern
- Place cookies in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are slightly browning
- Remove the cookies from the tray and lay on a wire cooling rack. Be careful with these cookies as they crumble easily!
