Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies

Watching carbs can help you lose weight, but that generally means you can’t enjoy things like cookies. These yummy peanut butter cookies change all that and they are super easy to make.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup artificial sweetener
  • ½ cup shelled, cooked peanuts

 

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350° degrees.
  • Mix all ingredients together and roll into balls.
  • Bake for 9 to 10 minutes. These will bake small, about the size of half dollars.
  • Allow to cool completely before serving.
  • TIP: if you want to have the peanuts already mixed in properly, choose a chunky peanut butter that has chunks of peanuts in the mix. You can make these without the peanuts, though.
