Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies!

on June 18, 2012

I needed a quick fix for my sweet tooth, and these cookies hit the spot! They are a bit crumbly, but taste a lot like a real peanut butter cookies. I used stevia instead of Splenda, but I imagine they’d taste great either way. Enjoy!!

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
1 1/3 cups granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda or Stevia
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
Extra granular Splenda for fork

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine all of the ingredients in a small mixing bowl; beat well with a spoon until it becomes a thick dough. Gently roll into 20 balls and place on a baking sheet. Or, use a 2-teaspoon cookie scoop to evenly measure the dough. Dip a fork in granular Splenda and make a criss-cross design by gently pressing into the balls of dough in alternating directions. Be gentle and dip the fork into Splenda frequently because the dough is very sticky. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. Cool before removing from the baking sheet. Store in the freezer and do not thaw before eating.
