UPDATE: I used 1/2 cup brown sugar instead of the white, and loved them even better, if that's possible! If you don't want to use any artificial sweetners, you could use 1 cup of either brown or white sugar. Another yummy addition is dark chocolate chips! At least with 60% cacao.
Oh my, what a Monday I've had! It has been the MOTHER of all Mondays!
So, I treated myself to some peanut butter cookies!
Not just any peanut butter cookies, but a bit more figure friendly peanut butter cookies.
I have finished my Advocare 24 day challenge, and feel amazing! I have lost a total of 13 lbs. and 6 inches total from all over.
So as not to sabbatoge myself on my not so good days when I need a little comfort from....food. I know, still working on that. But hey, making changes a litttle bit at a time.
Here is my recipe which I'm still tweaking to lessen the sugar, but it's still pretty good.
Healthier Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 cup Peanut Butter ( I used Smucker's Natural PB, Creamy)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup stevia
- 1 egg (lightly beaten)
- 1 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix peanut butter and sugars in a bowl until blended.
Add the egg and baking soda and stir until combined.
Use a cookie scoop to make all cookies same size. Make sure to squish (that's my technical term for the day) them down with a fork, and make a cute little criss-cross pattern.
Bake for 10 min. Makes about 28 cookies.
Each cookie is about 73.5 calories. Not bad right?
Did you notice that there's no flour?! It's not a typo......
These cookies are high in protein and low in calories.
My kids even love these and haven't missed the old version.
