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.

Ingredients

    1 cup smooth peanut butter (select natural or a brand with the lowest sugar grams) or crunchy, if you want even more of a peanut crunch
    1/2 cup Splenda (plus 3 teaspoons +/-)
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
    1 large egg
    1 cup crushed, unsalted peanuts

    Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

    Spray non-stick cookie sheet with Pam.
    Chop peanuts (preferably unsalted). Set aside.
    Cream together (by hand with spatula) peanut butter , egg and vanilla. Add in Splenda, cinnamon and crushed 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 think the nutritional info has got to be wrong. I can't believe there is 2,488.7 calories per serving. - 3/5/09

    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!
