This healthier version of the classic Peanut Butter Blossoms taste just as delicious as the original, and will be the easiest cookie you’ll make this season! Fluffy chewy cookies with a sweet chocolatey center – you’ll keep going back for more!
I absolutely love baking, and I especially love creating healthier versions of my favourite sweet snacks. I used to have these warm chewy peanut butter cookies with a melted chocolate center as a kid. We’d always use them for holiday cookie exchanges, and now I officially have my own HealthNut approved version. They’re refined sugar free, using only 9 simple ingredients and 1 bowl, yet they are absolutely DELISH. The perfect sweet, salty and nutty holiday treat, and the best part is they only take 20 minutes to make!
How to make these healthier peanut butter blossoms
When choosing your peanut butter, get the good stuff – Opt for ‘natural’ with no added sugar or oils. Peanut butter acts as a natural oil in this recipe and keeps the health game in check!
Serving options – Perfect to enjoy as is, as a midday snack, or as a late night dessert after dinner. You can also package them up all pretty and give them away as holiday cookies!
Meal prep friendly – These peanut butter blossoms are perfect for meal prep. The recipe makes 18 cookies which will store nicely in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or 1 month in the freezer.
Refined sugar free peanut butter blossoms
Peanut butter mixed with natural sweeteners like maple syrup, chocolate chunks and vanilla extract give your cookies that sweetness (and that ooey gooey texture) without adding refined sugar. They’re like little clouds of peanut butter!
