    Just made these last night and they were really good. My husband is a baker and he's thinking of putting these on his menu. A D person can eat 2 for "free".


    Peanut Butter Cookies


    1 cup peanut butter
    1 egg
    1 cup Nature Sweet Crystals aka Maltitiol (or Splenda)
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup almond flour

    Heat oven to 350 degrees.
    Cream together all ingredients and form into a ball. Chill dough for 10 minutes. When the ball is congealed enough to cut, form into 24 balls and place on two ungreased cookie sheets. Press down with a fork to flatten, first in one direction and then in another. Allow room on the cookie sheet for dough to spread between balls.

    Bake for 8 –10 minutes. Allow to cool slightly then transfer to a sheet of waxed paper to finish cooling.

    Variation
    Immediately after removing from oven, put three semi-sweet chocolate chips in the center of each cookie. This will add less than a carb to each cookie. (Option: use the carb free chips that are available)

    Without semi-sweet chocolate chips:
    Makes 24 cookies @ less than 2 carbs each

    With semi-sweet chocolate chips
    Makes 24 cookies @ 2.5 carb each

    Edit on 03/02/2008 * We made this recipe with peanut meal (flour) instead of the almond flour today. We got 36 cookies out of the recipe (doubled) and they were 3 grams of carbs per cookie. These were really good too! *
