How to Make Peanut Butter Cookies Without Sugar

Almost everyone is a sucker for peanut butter due to its smooth rich texture and taste. It tastes great with almost anything: peanut butter and jelly, peanut butter and sliced apples, peanut butter and chocolate, peanut butter and bananas, peanut butter and pancakes, and the list just goes on and on. But one of the best combinations ever is peanut butter and honey. A creamy nutty flavor combined with sweet, liquid gold is truly a match made in heaven!

If you want to bake peanut butter cookies without sugar, you can use this great combination. They are one of the easiest and quickest cookies to make and also one of the best tasting ones. Traditional peanut butter cookies contain sugar as a sweetener, but in this case, you will substitute it with honey, which makes them a wee bit healthier and gives you an excuse to eat another cookie. The rich peanut butter taste and the sweetness of the honey make them downright delicious. Get started with this recipe on how to make peanut butter cookies without sugar.

  1.  To prepare a yummy batch of around 16 medium-sized cookies, you need the following ingredients:


    ½ cup honey

    b. ½ cup butter at room temperature

    c. ½ cup of creamy or chunky peanut butter (whatever type you prefer)

    d. 1 large egg

    e. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    f. 1 cup all-purpose flour

    g. ½ teaspoon baking soda

    h. ¼ teaspoon salt

  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and line your baking sheets with parchment paper.

  3. In a medium bowl, combine the honey, butter, peanut butter, egg and vanilla. Mix it together with an electric mixer or manually with a whisk until the mixture looks smooth and creamy. This usually takes 2 to 3 minutes with an electric mixer and about 5 minutes by hand.

  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.

  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients from step 4 into the creamed mixture in step 3. Make sure to mix until it’s well-blended and free of lumps.

  6. Because the dough is on the soft side, you need to refrigerate it for a few minutes. It usually takes 30 minutes to an hour before the dough is ready to shape or cut.

  7. Afterward, roll the dough into walnut sized balls, or use a small ice cream scoop to form small balls. Place them on the parchment paper, press down to flatten them, and use a fork to make the signature crosshatch pattern on each of the cookies. Make sure to space the cookies 2 inches apart so they do not stick to one another once they expand.

  8. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.

  9. Take the cookies out of the oven, and let them rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Now that you’ve learned how to make peanut butter cookies without sugar, you can start looking at other cookie recipes, and try tweaking them by substituting sugar with honey or other sugar substitutes for healthier cookies.
