Low Carb Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Submitted by: CAROL@PCWOLFF

Introduction

If you're watching your refined carb/sugar intake, these cookies give you the protein and sweetness without the carbs from refined white flour. Adding the crushed nuts and cinnamon gives it the crunch and satisfaction of a traditional flour-based cookie.

    1 cup crushed, unsalted peanuts

Directions

Bake on center rack at 350 degrees 12 - 15 minutes.
Yield: approx. 8 3"-4" cookies

Place mounds of dough onto cookie sheet, keeping approx. 3 to 4 inches between each mound. If you are using your hands, coat them with Splenda --- the dough can be sticky.
With a fork dipped in Splenda, flatten the mounds with a crisscross pattern on top.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Carefully remove cookies from baking sheet (they may be a little crumbly) onto a cooling rack. Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with a very light dusting of Splenda. (Looks like powdered sugar without the calories & carbs!)

    I'm not at all sure how the dear people at Spark calculated this nutritional info. Maybe if you ate the entire batch of cookies?!!! I just submitted the recipe because I and my family really enjoy these cookies!
