LC Peanut Butter Meringue Cookies

SHARE THE BACON!

I meant to post this recipe a while back, but wasn’t able to get it done. I believe this one is worth the wait! It’s very versatile and a good way to use up egg whites if you make homemade mayo like I do. It’s a 3-ingredient recipe, so it comes together quickly and easily. My favorite! The only thing that takes some time is the cooking and cooling.

makes 18 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup egg whites, room temp
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (can use any nut butter)
  • 2 Tbsp sweetener or to taste (I use LC-Natural Sweet)

Preheat oven to 200o. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat. Pour egg whites into mixer bowl.

egg white

Turn on fairly high speed and beat until soft peaks begin to form. Slowly add sweetener by sprinkling on meringue as you beat it.

add sweetener

Continue beating until meringue is stiff and does not fall off scraper/spatula/spoon.

stiff peaks

Add peanut butter and mix on lower speed to blend well.

add nut butter

Mixture will be somewhat deflated.

ready to bake

I used a medium Pampered Chef scoop to measure out the cookies. The scoop equals approximately 2 Tbsp. These cookies will not spread, so they don’t need much space between them on the baking sheet.

Bake at 200o for one hour without opening the oven door. Once hour is up, turn off oven and leave cookies in for one more hour. If you open the door during cooking, the cookies will deflate. Remove from oven and enjoy!

ready to eat

These cookies are soft and somewhat moist. I like to use them to make sandwich cookies. I mix 1/2 cup of peanut butter with 4 Tbsp LC-Natural Sweet.

sweetened nut butter

Spread on one cookie and top with another. Or you could use a sugar-free fruit spread for a PB & J sandwich cookie. Or cream cheese filling.
Get creative!

Even better, I like to cover my cookies in my low carb chocolate.

I either spread the sweetened peanut butter on top and then dip in the chocolate or make a sandwich cookie and dip it in chocolate. Let dry on rack.

To speed up drying, place cookies in refrigerator.

You end up with this deliciousness!

  1. With the peanut butter meringue cookies, the temp is supposed to be set at 200.. is that Fahrenheit or Celsius?

  2. I think i didnt beat it well enough first time around because after i put the peanut butter in it went to complete liquid…

    • Possibly Raif, you want very stiff egg whites when you beat them the first time. If your mixer doesn’t have a very low speed, you can also mix the peanut butter in by hand through folding.

      • Hey craig! I did it again, it was because I didnt whip them enough! They turned out pretty good. You were right about them being soft and moist (I was expecting a lot more of a meringue texture).
        I bought some low sugar ice cream today and it just came to me to try and make ice cream sandwiches and freeze them!

        • Raif, just be careful with the sugar free ice cream because normally the store-bought ones will have high GI sugar alcohols in them. That can mess you up if you eat too much of it :)

          • Its the Peters ‘no added sugar’ ice cream.
            It says it has 5grams of Sorbitol for every 50ml.
            Would that be bad if I had a serving? Sorry Im not good with this stuff!

          • That doesn’t sound too bad – sorbitol isn’t really a terrible sweetener because it is relatively low GI. You want to watch out for maltitol (which I see used more and more) because it has a high glycemic index.

          • Last question!
            What about Sucralose? It says it uses it in the ingredients (sweetener 950,955).
            Is that also bad. Sorry for the questions:/ I tried googling but I only found news articles stating that all sweeteners are bad.

          • Sucralose is OK, but some people are against it. Personally I try to use all natural sweeteners (which sorbitol and sucralose are not) but honestly if you aren’t that bothered by it, it’s not a big deal ;)
