Sugar Free No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies
A recipe for Sugar Free No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies that is based upon the popular boiled peanut butter cookie recipe.This easy and delicous recipe for Sugar Free No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies can be made gluten free or vegan, vegetarian, as well.
Tip: Before placing your saucepan on the stove, give it a quick spray with nonstick to make clean up a bit easier. :)
Prep a cookie sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Set this aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the sugar free peanut butter and oats. Set this bowl aside.
Next, in a saucepan over medium heat, bring to a boil the butter and the milk. Whisk or stir the ingredients as they heat up to prevent burning or sitcking. Tip: spray your saucepan with a bit of nonstick before you add the ingredients. After the mixture has boiled for one minute, turn the heat off. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the sugar alternative and the vanilla extract
Pour half of the ingredients from the saucepan over the first bowl with the peanut butter and oatmeal and stir a few times. Then blend in the remaining contents from the saucepan with the ingredients from the bowl.
When the ingredients seem to be holding together, use a scoop or a small spoon to scoop out the cookies and flatten or drop on to the prepared cookie sheet. This should be done quickly as the cookies will want to set as they cool. Then allow the cookies to cool and set entirely before serving.
I mentioned that this recipe is based upon the popular old fashion boiled cookie recipe. In that recipe, it is the chemical reaction of boiling the sugar that makes the cookies harden up perfectly. Since we are using sugar alternatives in this recipe, your cookies may not harden up exactly like the sugar version of this recipe.
Also mentioned is that you should use (creamy) sugar free peanut butter for this recipe.
Here is how to make your own sugar free peanut butter that you can use in this recipe. Or, you can purchase peanut butter that has not had sugar added to it.
