Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies

I am trying to eat semi low carb but tonight I was craving something sweet. I discovered this recipe online.

Not as good as a gourmet dessert, but not too bad.  I love PB though, so anything made with PB wins me over.  (FYI I love PB so much that I do not keep it in the house.  There have been weeks where I eat an entire jar bc I have a couple spoonfuls a day...NOT OK)

You will need:

  • Natural PB
  • Splenda
  • Vanilla
  • Salt
  • egg

  1. preheat oven to 350
  2. Mix 1 c. PB, 1 c. Splenda, 1 tsp Vanilla, 1 egg, and a dash of salt together in a bowl
  3. Spoon balls of the dough onto the lightly greased cookie sheets.
  4. Press a fork on top of each ball.
  5. Bake for approx 10 minutes.  I just watched them to know when.
I had two tonight. They were pretty good! I did the math and for 13 cookies (which is the number of cookies I made), each cookie was 108 calories and between 2 and 2.5 net carbs! If you are craving something sweet, give it a try !!


  1. This is getting bookmarked! I'm in the midst of trying to get myself down to my BMI-appropriate weight but have the biggest sweet tooth on the planet. Many many thanks!

    1. Good luck with your weightloss Stephen. I also find that a cup of lowfat cocoa helps my sweet tooth! Its usually only 3-4 carbs a cup depending on the brand you buy!
