Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream Cookies

desserts recipes Dec 20, 2019
These cookies are basically deconstructed oreos that look like Santa hats. 😆 Perfect for the holidays and coming in hot at just under 100 calories per cookie (frosting and all!). Enjoy a few and then hide them in the back of the fridge because they'll be gone before you know it! 😎😋 This recipe is from my FREE Low-Carb Christmas Recipe EBook which you can DOWNLOAD HERE!

Instructions

For the cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Line two large baking sheets with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered peanut butter, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, add peanut butter, egg whites, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Beat with a hand mixer until well combined.
  5. Add dry ingredients and beat again until dough forms.
  6. Using a mini scoop or tablespoon, scoop dough into 20 balls and place on the lined baking sheets, making sure to leave enough space between each.
  7. Using your thumb or the back of a teaspoon, press into the middle of each cookie to form a hole.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from oven and let cool.

For the topping

  1. While cookies are baking, prepare the icing.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, coconut butter, sweetener, and vanilla extract until well combined. Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking.
  3. Place icing in the refrigerator to harden slightly, about 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, cut each strawberry into eight pieces.
  5. When cookies are cooled, use a teaspoon to fill each hole with icing. Top with a sliced strawberry and enjoy! Store in the refrigerator if there's any left 😆
