Health Benefits of These Keto Peanut Butter Cookies

Supports Joint Health
Each one of your joints is surrounded by connective tissue that’s made up primarily of the protein collagen. Collagen helps to support the structure and function of your joints and keeps them moving fluidly.
As you age, however, your connective tissue can start to wear away a bit. This can lead to joint pain and inflammation. For intense athletes, the same can happen due to strenuous use.
Here’s the good news — research shows that consuming collagen (like the powder in these keto cookies) can help repair your connective tissue and support your joints[*].
Keto Peanut Butter Cookies
Are you ready to whip up some delicious peanut butter cookies?
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, grab a mixing bowl, and let’s get started.
Begin by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
Next, in a large mixing bowl, add all your ingredients (collagen, natural pb, egg, vanilla extract, and powdered sweetener) and mix until well incorporated.
Grab your cookie sheet and roll the cookie dough into small 1-inch balls or use a cookie scoop, making sure the dough balls are at least one inch apart.
Using a fork, press the cookie dough balls into the classic criss-cross pattern. If the dough is sticky use some coconut oil or avocado oil on your hands.
Next, place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown. If you like your cookies more crunchy or crumbly, you can let them cook for a few more minutes — just be sure not to let them burn!
Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool to room temperature on a wire rack.
Enjoy them right away, or store them in an airtight container for later.
Keto Peanut Butter Cookies Cooking Tips
When buying peanut butter, look for natural peanut butter brands and make sure to buy creamy peanut butter as opposed to chunky. And if you’re sensitive to peanuts or don’t like the taste go for almond butter instead.
As an alternative to monk fruit, you can also try stevia, or if you’re okay with sugar alcohols, you can check out erythritol, or swerve. Any low-carb sweetener will do the trick.Print
