Flourless Peanut Butter Biscuits



Really Simple, Really Easy, Really good- but there's a catch. Before I give you the recipe, its important to be aware of the following:

1. This IS peanut butter. So what? Well, at 9g carbs per 100g, its orange list firstly, but secondly it does have a high level of omega 6. The best thing for you do to on the days you will have this would be to make fish one of your meals for the day.
2. You can counter the omega 6 issue by using a different nut butter such as almond or macadamia. Macadamia nut butter would actually be a better choice because it is lower in carbs. Almond butter also falls under the orange list.

At the bottom of the recipe will be the nutritional information for the whole recipe including fats, proteins and carbs for the entire recipe, and I will calculate per biscuit for you too.

Variations of this include:

Add some cocoa to make chocolate biscuits.
Add some choc chips to make choc chop biscuits.
Add some extra chopped nuts to give it a nutty crunch biscuit feel.
Dip them in chocolate or make them into a "Romany cream" style biscuit...

Whatever you do, make sure you enjoy them!








Ingredients:

1 cup (266g) sugar free peanut butter
1/4 to 1/2 cup sweetener - depending on deaired sweetness (erythritol makes them harder - but your choice)
1 egg

Method:

Preheat oven to 160C.
Prepare a baking paper lined baking sheet.
Mix all ingredients together well.
Make tablespoon sized balls, roll out and place on baking paper.


Use a fork to press down.
Bake in oven for 7 minutes, turn the baking sheet around and bake for a further 3-8 minutes (or until edges are slightly darker)
Remove from oven, place on a wire cooling rack and allow to harden.
Enjoy!











Recipe makes Between 19 and 20.
Per 2 biscuits:
1.25 fat portions 
0.27 protein Portions
0.08 carb portions

Net carbs per 2 biscuits would be 2.4g.

Per 100g the carbs would be 5.9g (depending on amount of sweetener).
