Lower Carb, Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Eating cookies is never healthy and these are not necessarily "low cal", but they are easy and delicious. I used MomFoodie's recipe, check out the original here:  Her recipe uses regular sugar, but I wanted to see if the carb count could be dropped by using a sugar replacement baking blend and it worked!  Each cookie has only 12 carbs :)  If you don't want to use Truvia baking blend, just use 1 cup of regular sugar.  

I apologize the the picture.  I forgot take one and had to snap one at work as I was giving the last cookie away. 

Peanut butter and Chocolate chip cookies (yields 20 cookies)

15oz jar of peanut butter (creamy or chunky) 
1/2 cup Truvia baking blend 
1 large egg
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Blend all of the ingredients together.  Scoop out with a small cookie scoop and flatten slightly.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Make sure you let these cool for 10 minutes on the cookie sheet otherwise they will fall apart.
