Peanut butter is great to use in baking and specially for cookies. It adds a lovely moist texture to cookies. But always make sure that you are using a fresh and runny peanut butter. Some brands tends to get hard and dry when the jar is opened for a while. It makes the ingredients difficult to combine even resulting in some lump in the dough. Nut butter are great ingredient to cut down on carbs and avoid flour in baking. Look at this cookie batter! Really hard to believe it is a flourless cookie, right?
