Some people are chocolate lovers like me and simply adore the decadent taste of virtually anything with chocolate in it. Others may prefer something a little different than that to satisfy their desire for something sweet–like peanut butter! I’ve never been one to get into peanut butter personally, although it’s not so bad mixed with chocolate for me.

EASY LOW-CARB PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

  • 1 cup Skippy Natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup Splenda or other sweetener equivalent
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon Singing Dog vanilla
  • A dash of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together and roll into balls.
  3. On lightly greased cookie sheets, place balls about two inches apart.
  4. Flatten the balls with a fork dipped in sweetener.
  5. Bake until set.

NOTE: These cookies are more like shortbread in texture, but are a good treat when the craving for peanut butter hits. And for those of you who are like me and LOVE chocolate with your peanut butter, why not drizzle some melted low-carb chocolate on top for an added layer of ooo la la to make this even better?! Oh yummy!
