The 25 Calorie Cookie

25 calorie cookies. Low fat, dairy-free, wheat-free, sugar-free, oil-free. Peanut buttery, soft and chocolatey, I think I deserve a medal for this one.

  1. I haven’t come across peanut flour in Finland, so is there an alternative flour I could use so that it would still add up to 25cals/cookie :)? Thanks!

    1. Hi Amanda
      It’s not something that is stocked in many stores in Australia either. I order mine from iHerb.com who ship worldwide. I believe Amazon also sell it. Sadly, I don’t know of another alternative that is so low in calories – peanut flour is made by extracting all the high calorie fat from the nut. Good luck!

      1. I finally made them – took a while to get the PB powder, and I am quite impressed. I loved just eating the batter too! this is a winner, thank you!!! keep em coming!

  2. The lowest temperature for my oven is 200 so I baked them for 10 minutes at 200 and they seemed doughy and dense and not the least bit cookie texture . I followed the recipe except I used raisins in place of the sf chocolate. Suggestions?

  3. Do you have any other suggestions besides the chocolate chips, dried cherries or gogis? I am not a fan of cherries or gogis and can’t find sugar free vegan chips.

  4. Just made and ate them all with my husband that was the tastiest little thing ever. We just lost 90 lbs and 125lbs since June with HCG diet and now we are in maintenance mode and Christmas time is harder than we thought it would be. But low and behold your absolutely amazing recipe. Thank you!!

  5. Can you use almond flour instead of peanut flour? I have almond on hand out not peanut…I try to avoid peanuts.

  6. Is the 1 tsp of cinnamon correct? Mine turned out ok, but the cinnamon is pretty strong, and my cookies are much darker than yours. I did sub 1/2 brown sugar trivia and 1/2 regular stevia, but I still think the cinnamon seemed to be a little too much.

  7. These look great, I can’t wait to make them. Is the stevia you used, stevia extract powder, or a stevia blend like a stevia and erythritol blend?

  8. tasty but you could have mentioned that the reason they’re 25 calories is because they’re the size of a dime – that’s a little miseading

  9. Could I substitute PB2 (powdered PB) for the peanut flour? I think it’d increase the caloric count, but only a tiny bit and it’s available in stores so I wouldn’t have to buy it online.

  10. I had to double the size of these to make them cookie size. So mine are double the calories, but still good on calories, as far as a cookie goes. I didn’t need as much milk as the recipe called for, so I’m glad it said to add it a little at a time. The cinnamon was too overwhelming, and if I make these again, I will definitely cut down most of it.

  11. So I didn’t have peanut flour and used all coconut flower but I cookies wouldn’t stick or back at all really, if I get the other flour will that help?
