Low Carb Emergency Peanut Butter Cookies (4 EASY ingredients)

You know when you having those days that sticking to your low carb eating is very hard?  These have gotten me through!  There are different variations of this that people make, but I have found this one works the best for me. Each cookie is about 3 grams of net carbs each.

Makes approximately 15 cookies

1 cup all natural no sugar added peanut butter (adds approx 30g net carbs)
3/4 cup Splenda  (adds approx 18g net carbs)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix ingredients in a small bowl and drop by rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until set.

    I’ve made these before using 2tsp of vanilla and 1/4 cup Splenda and they’re awesome! My 3yo loves these as well!

  3. I’m gonna try these! Any thought as to what adding vanilla whey protein powder (to up the protein content – 2 scoops would add 2 grams net carbs total) would do to them?

    • I am sure as I havn’t cooked with it before, but I would try a half batch and see how they turn out. Let me know!!

    • It sounds like it would run on the cookie sheet. Some peanut butter has syrup or sugar in it, and would run when its hot if not mixed with flour of some kind. The Whey powder might just be the trick to keep it more solid.

    • Nope, they dont run. There is no liquid in these except 1 egg so the “dough” is stiff. And, the recipe specifically calls for all natural no sugar peanut butter which does not have added sugar in it. It is just nuts and salt.

  4. so whats the carb count PER cookie?????????????

  5. Iam going to try these they look lovely

  6. I have made these, but mine are super, super crumbly. Any suggestions on fixing them?

    Thank you!

      These are a crumbly cookie, but they should stay together. Eggs are all different sizes so that could affect the outcome. Your must need a little more moisture.
