Testimonies of the Day  

30 Day Accelerated Testimony:“A BIG THANK YOU MARIA! I for the first time in years feel clean. By clean i mean my mind, my energy, my body, the best way to describe it is cleansed. My irritability is gone and I am finding myself so grateful, grateful for my wonderful life, my terrific kids and amazing supportive husband. I have always been blessed with these things but I am just now consciously connecting to myself and my life. The funny thing is I didn’t even know that I wasn’t. I am truly amazed how in a little over 2 weeks your life, health and prospective can change. Thank you Maria for your kindness and passion to teach. Torri

Ps; down 13lbs in 15 days, 17 more till I reach my goal weight of 120lbs.”

Diabetes Testimony: “I had to go to the Dr today as I have bronchitis. The Nurse asked what was I doing as I had lost 12 pounds and my BP was down. She asked about my Diabetes meds and I told her I had stopped them. My A1C was 5 and when I was on meds it was 7. I told her I found Maria Mind Body Health and have been following her. My Dr was Really impressed.” – Stephanie

Photo Testimony: For most of my life I was a healthy weight, until I got in my 40’s something happened, I swelled up like Veruca Salt from Willie Wonka (the girl who eat the gum & turned into a round purple ball). For close to 10 yrs I was having digestive problems, nausea, bloating, swelling/inflammation all over my body, rashes that dermatologist could not cure. At the end of 2012 I started to read the book Wheat Belly – Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight. Kicking & screaming I did something I never thought I would do & changed my diet. Gone would be my 3-4 x a week of pasta, burgers, sandwiches, rice & sweets & switched it up for food items most Puerto Ricans don’t eat. I never eat a cauliflower in my life before the fall of 2012. Although I knew I needed to lose the weight, the weight loss was the furthest from my mind. I just wanted to feel better. I lost 25 lbs & a ton of inches – I didn’t think to measure myself. I lost the majority of the weight in the first 2 months. All that to say …dump the wheat. My next goal is to strengthen & tone. Body World @ the Museum got me worked up today. There are still plenty of people & things in this life that I want to enjoy. Gotta do this!” – Ivette

1/2 c.  vanilla whey/egg white protein
3/4 c. peanut flour (or almond flour)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/4 c. peanut butter (or almond)
1/4 c. Swerve (or erythritol)
1 tsp Stevia Glycerite
2 TBS water (to hold dough together)

1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. cream cheese
1/4 c.  Swerve
1/2 tsp Stevia Glycerite

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium bowl, stir together the whey, peanut/almond flour, baking soda and salt. Cut in the peanut butter using a pastry blender or your fingers until the butter lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the water and sweetener to form a stiff dough. Roll into 1/4 inch balls.  On a cookie sheet, place 1/4 inch balls 2 inches apart. Flatten balls into circles (I used a measuring cup). Bake for 10-12 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are lightly browned. Cool in oven to crisp up.  FILLING: Mix together and use to hold cookies together. Makes 12 servings.

    Oh. My. These are absolutely delicious, and very easy to make!

    Can you tell us how many sandwich cookies you get out of a batch? I “tasted” so much before they ever made it to the oven, I am sure I didn’t get the proper amount actually cooked.

    Thank you so much …. this is a definite winner!

  • Fugal Family says:

    Oh my. I’ll have to try these for sure. Yummy!

  • Erin says:

    Do you think these would work with coconut flour instead of almond? It’s what I have on hand…

  • You could try.

    Do you have almonds that you could grind? Or peanuts you could grind?

  • You get 32 cookies or 16 sandwiches.

  • Tania says:

    Great recipe even though I love Nutter Butters 😉

  • HampYoung says:

    These didn’t come out well; they didn’t hold together well and tended to break apart. Possibly from 400 degrees being too high. And they seemed to lack peanuttiness. I’ll be playing around with the recipe to see if I can improve it.

  • Yummmm. Just made these tonight.

  • Anonymous says:

    Your directions say:
    “On parchment paper, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch in thickness. On a cookie sheet, place 1/4 inch balls 2 inches apart. Flatten balls into circles (I used a measuring cup)”

    If you are rolling into 1/4 inch balls and then flattening, why would it be necessary to roll out the dough to 1/8 thickness beforehand?

  • France says:

    *dancing with joy* I just made these!!! They are great! They taste so naughty… I had to use a wee bit more water for my dough to hold together (another Tbsp) but used Xylitol and not JLS/Stevia. I also do not have the patience to roll 1/4 inch balls, mine were about 1/2 inch and I had about enough for 12 servings (couldn’t resist and like other posters, had to eat a bit of the dough!). I had my oven on 350°F/180°C and the edges were browned by 10 minutes. Not criticising your recipe, just adding my experience (one lady said her cookies fell apart). I also could not afford to leave them to cool in the oven (had to put dinner in there) so I left them on the cookie sheet for a few minutes (5-15?) and then I put them on a wire rack to cool. They are PERFECT! What a treat!!!
    Again: Thanks!!! 🙂

  • Hey Maria! i found your lovely recipes because i was searching how to make healthy snicker ice cream 😉 i love baking
    but want to cut back on sugar, and now finally thanks to your recipes i can continue baking but without all that sugar 😉 just a question about: Just Like Sugar (or erythritol) can i replace this with stevia? and how much should i use? and what about: Jay Robb vanilla whey/egg white protein. is this necessary for the batter? or can i do without of replace it with a natural product? keep it up with all the lovelyness 🙂 greetings from Brussels!

    • Thank you! A powdered stevia might work, but the liquid won’t. You need the bulk of the sweetener. You can’t omit the protein powder in this recipe. It helps hold together the cookie. I have a almond flour cookie recipe in my Nutritious and Delicious cookbook that you could just sub the butter for peanut butter. 🙂 http://astore.amazon.com/marisnutran05-20/detail/1456593595

      Just a note, all the products I use are completely natural. Whey protein and Swerve are just as natural as flour and cane sugar. 🙂

  • What can I use to replace Stevie gycerite?

  • Sunny says:

    I noticed in this recipe and several other low carb recipes from other authors that it does not call for peanut butter made without sugar. Do you use regular name brand peanut butter in your recipes? The carb count is only 2 carbs less per serving on the “healthier” version of peanut butter, but the tastes suffers considerably. Still, I am reluctant to choose a product whose second ingredient is sugar. What is your opinion?

  • Lyn says:

    Hi Maria~ Not sure how you feel about Walmart, but I was in there this evening and I noticed they now carry that wonderful Kerry Gold Butter from Ireland. It’s only 2.98 for 8 0unces. At least they are selling it in the dairy dept. of my town of Buffalo, MN. Some people boycott Walmart, but I just wanted to share this info.
    As always, thanks for everything you do. Lyn

  • Kathryn says:

    These look amazing!

    Unfortunately I’m not big on artificial sweeteners, any idea what amount of sugar I’d need to use for this recipe? And do any of the 4 artificial sweeteners serve a purpose outside of sweetening?

  • Kelly says:

    Hi Maria,
    Found your recipe via IBIH “30 best low carb cookies” article and I’m drooling at the pic I used to LOVE these cookies as a kid I can’t wait to make these at home. My Jay Robb whey vanilla protein powder is super sweet (has stevia). Not sure if you use the sweetened Jay Robb in this recipe or if I should skip the Swerve? Just wanted to check before I bake, I don’t want to make it too sweet. Thank you!!!

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Yep. I used the sweetened jay Robb. You could omit the swerve and taste the dough before baking. But know that some of the sweetness bakes off;)
