Yummy Gluten Free Monk Fruit Cookies

A cookie that tastes sweet and decadent yet has lots of protein and less sugar. Yes, please! With or without the chocolate, these gluten free monk fruit cookies will blow your mind! Sweetened with 0 calorie monk fruit sweetener, the cookies are rich and moist and so delicious, I promise you won’t miss the extra sugar!

You can prepare the cookies two ways – either as plain peanut butter cookies or peanut butter cookies dipped in chocolate (also sweetened with monk fruit). Both ways are delicious, but I personally love them dipped in chocolate. With the hardened outer chocolate shell and the soft peanut butter inside, it’s definitely a winning combo!

How to Bake with Monk Fruit

baking with monk fruit

Baking with monk fruit sweetener is a great zero-calorie and zero-gylcemic choice for baking. Because monk fruit is naturally about 300 times sweeter than sugar, on it’s own, it can be difficult to calculate how much to use. But there’s an easy solution…

I really like the Lakanto monk fruit sweetener, because it’s special blend can be used as a 1:1 substitute for sugar.

They even have 4 different types of sweeteners to perfectly suit whatever you are cooking or baking.

1. CLASSIC MONKFRUIT SWEETENER/ORGANIC

A 1:1 substitute for white sugar. Good for baked goods, drinks, sauces, etc.

2. GOLDEN MONKFRUIT SWEETENER

Similar to the Classic above, but has a slight maple flavor with the texture of cane sugar. Many people substitute it for brown sugar.

3. POWDERED MONKFRUIT SWEETENER

With a a powdered texture, this sweetener is perfect for icings, cheesecakes, etc.

4. MONKFRUIT BAKING SWEETENER

Specially formulated to use in baked goods. The Baking Sweetener browns better, has a powdered texture, and dissolves easily.
