{Recipe} Peanut butter cookies [Zero sugar]

My kids absolutely adore peanut butter. They eat it straight out of the jar... And they love cookies (show me a kid who doesn't). The inspiration for this recipe was found on Pinterest - one of those days where the kids kept bugging me for something nice to eat, and me looking for something so easy that I could do it blindfolded.... The recipe I found was my saving grace. I adapted the original a bit, increasing the peanut butter, adding baking powder for a bit of lift, and adding a bit of xylitol. 

This week I made them again and decided that the next time I bake them I am going to change the recipe yet again. I want to experiment with adding in a liquid such as buttermilk, and maybe some coconut flour just to bind the cookie. Sometimes they are a bit dry, so need to fix that problem.

In the meantime, here is the recipe for my peanut butter cookies, flourless, sugarless, guiltless!
