Low Carb Living ~ Peanut Butter Cookies - Low Carb Style

Thursday, February 16, 2012

First off I have to confess that I have a PROBLEM with peanut butter. I love it. I would (and have) chosen to forgo a meal just so I can eat a big ol' spoonful of it (especially if there is also a cup of coffee involved). I really try to not have it in the house -- especially if I am in lose mode, not just maintain mode. That said, SOMETIMES it is nice to have a little treat. These cookies are the BOMB!! - BUT they are a treat - not for everyday consumption. I wrote that for MY benefit :)

    I too love peanut butter. I have a small amount on my flax seed muffin so all totally that comes to 7 carbs and fulfills my need for the peanut butter taste..
    if ya ever want to try the flaxseed muffins just google search- flax seed muffin in a coffee mug:) easy peasy- done in 80 seconds and so yummy. while the recipe doesnt call for it I add cinnamon to mine.. I even have these on induction and still stated burning lavendar in 3 days and purple in 6. drink lots of water though cause flax needs to fluid to glide on through..
    I'll be giving these cookies a try. thanks for the recipe.

    What PB do y'all use?

  1. chinita -- I hope you check back here because I was unable to respond to you via email. Personally I use Skippy Natural Peanut Butter -- it is the lowest of the commercial brands in carbs -- 4 net carbs per 2 Tbsp serving. To go lower than that you'd either need to be in a larger market and able to buy specialty products or make your own. I like the Skippy.
