Try my recipe for Reese’s Peanut Butter Twinkies.



2 cups peanut flour
1/2 cup Swerve (or erythritol)
1 tsp stevia glycerite
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/8 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 extra-large eggs (or 4 medium eggs)
OPTIONAL for Chocolate Twinkie: 1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup heavy cream OR coconut cream (if dairy allergy)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup  Swerve

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease Twinkie pans with coconut oil or butter. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix at low speed for 30 seconds while scraping bowl. Mix at high speed for 3 minutes, scraping bowl every minute.

Spoon batter into the tin until they are 2/3 full (click HERE to find a Twinkie pan on amazon.com). Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans then move to wire rack to cool completely.

Chocolate Filling: Whip the cream until fluffy, add in the cocoa powder and sweetener. Fill the Twinkies with chocolate whipped cream using the piping tool. Makes 12 servings.

    wow, my older son was really happy to see this recipe; he is 14 and just read Wheat Belly. he went off wheat and most other grains about 2 weeks ago. i think he has lost a couple of pounds and definitely does not snack constantly like he was before. question, do you think almond flour would work in this?

  • Thanks Patricia!

    Yes, almond flour will work;)

    Happy eating!

    Good morning, Maria…
    quick “general” cooking question.
    I’ve found a couple of recipes that use agave nectar.
    I am sugar free/low carb.
    What would be your approximate conversion for Truvia being used to replace 1/2 cup of agave nectar in a recipe?
    I sure appreciate your recipes and expertise. Great work.

  • Thanks:_)

    If you use Truvia instead of agave, I would use the same amount. Agave and Truvia are both a little sweeter than sugar so it should work out to be the same.

    Happy Eating!

    Hi Maria! I just LOVE all your recipes and I think you are so inspiring! Quick question…what would be a good substitute for the peanut flour? Hazelnut? Or would you suggest just making my own flour by grinding raw peanuts? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!!!!

  • Peanut flour is a bit more complicated. It isn’t just ground peanuts. I get mine here: http://astore.amazon.com/marisnutran05-20/detail/B0052OOYO2

    You could use almond flour if you have a peanut allergy: http://astore.amazon.com/marisnutran05-20/detail/B0006ZN538

    Happy Eating!

    The kids were so excited about getting twinkies, but I failed at my attempt. 🙁 I used the exact same ingredients except I didn’t have stevia glycerite. I asked on the forum and learned the 1 tsp of the glycerite was equal to one cup sugar. So I used NuNaturals stevia extract. They stated that 3/4 tsp is a sweet as 1 cup of sugar. I always liked NuNaturals becaue it wasn’t bitter. Well I guess I used too much because they were SO bitter. And I oiled the twinkie pan very well, but they stuck and broke apart. The ingredients are so expensive that I hate when I fail. Next time I will only make recipes if I have the exact same ingredients. I LOVE your wonderful website and the valuable info and recipes. I just wish I didn’t disappoint a bunch of kids because I never seem to get sweetener substitutions right! I see the recipe in the new book is entirely different, so maybe someday I will try that one.

    • Oh, this makes me very sad… I will try them again.

      So sorry!

      I just made two batches of these….one with the cocoa powder to have chocolate and one with no cocoa powder. I also tried both sugars. One with erythritol and one with the just like sugar and no erythritol. I baked mine for 20 minutes each. They came out of the pan beautifully and were so easy to make. I am not familiar with the NuNaturals, but the recipe works perfectly if using the ingredients listed. Hope that helps 😉

    • Thanks for your kind words!

      I’m really happy you liked them;)))

  • These look FABULOUS and I will be making them for sure. I have a quick question…is stevia glycerite the same as the liquid pure stevia drops I have? The brand is SweetLeaf liquid stevia drops.

  • Thanks!

    This is stevia glycerite: http://astore.amazon.com/marisnutran05-20/detail/B0017WI3F4

    It is a non bitter form of stevia…the only kind I like:)

  • Thanks Maria…I just bought it!! 🙂 My hubby and I have enjoyed so many of your recipes!

    Specifically–what brand of twinkie pan? Did you get it on amazon too?

  • Thanks April!

    Here it is on Amazon: http://astore.amazon.com/marisnutran05-20/detail/B0009R59QY

    Thank you SOOOO much for your support!

    Hi, two questions:
    1) I bought a large amount of liquid sucralose (Ez Sweetz) and am looking to finish that before buying any other liquid sweetener. Can I use that in place of stevia glycerite

  • Anonymous says:

    Secondly, can I use a muffin tin instead of a Twinkie tin? Thank you so much, your site is a blessing to low carbers

    Hi Maria,

    Quick Question – Could I use Swerve instead of Just Like Sugar? Would it still be 1/2 cup? Thanks!
