Homemade, Healthy Nutter Butters with only THREE ingredients for the cookies? Crunchy, peanut-y biscuits with a sweet, smooth, and creamy filling? The best nut butter cookies you'll ever eat? Paleo, Vegan and Ketogenic lifestyle compliant? SIGN ME UP!
Last week I saw a video floating around social media for a homemade Nutter Butter recipe. I've never actually tried one of these peanut flavored cookies before, but I can tell you, I was starving by the time I had finished watching that video. I HAD to try one. The problem? The original homemade recipe called for both dairy and sugar (tons of it), and they both make me feel ICK.
So rather than sulk, I got creative in my kitchen and came up with these incredibly simple, incredibly delicious, HEALTHY Nutter Butter cookies. These are perfect for those following a Paleo, Ketogenic or Vegan lifestyle, just be sure to make the modifications for each:
Ketogenic: Be sure to opt for a low carb sweetener such as Monkfruit Sweetener.
Paleo: Opt for a nut butter rather than peanut butter. Sprouted and soaked butters are always recommended!
Vegan: Use a flax egg, or your favorite vegan option, to replace the egg.
Whichever modification you choose, these Nutter Butters are so good and will be loved by the entire family <3

Homemade Nutter Butters
(Makes 8 cookies)
For the Cookies:
1/2- 3/4 cup sweetener of choice (I used a monkfruit sweetener blend)
1 cup organic nut butter (traditional: peanut, paleo: cashew or almond)
1 organic egg (or flax egg for vegan option)
For the Filling:
1/4 cup coconut oil or grass-fed butter, room temp
1/4 cup nut butter, room temp
1/2 cup powdered swerve
2 tablespoons nut milk
1) Preheat the oven to 350F and lightly grease a baking sheet with coconut oil.
2) In a large bowl, mix the cookie ingredients together until smooth.
3) Scoop out 1 inch balls of cookie dough onto your baking sheet. Press down with the back of a fork and then press again from the opposite direction, to make the criss-cross pattern on top of each cookie.To make the cookie dough into the shape of a traditional Nutter Butter cookie, pinch in both sides of each cookie before baking.
4) Bake for 12 minutes and then let cool on the tray while you make your filling.
5) In a large bowl, beat the coconut oil and peanut butter in a big bowl until smooth.
6) Slowly add in your powdered sweetener and beat until smooth.
7) Add the milk, one tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
8) Spread a tablespoon of the filling onto the bottom side of one of the cookies and then top with another cookie to create a cookie sandwich. You have homemade, healthy Nutter Butters! Enjoy!
