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. 


  1. It's good to know that the Truvia blend works. It certainly is a calorie saver. I'll try your version next time, since I like these cookies a little more than is good for my waistline :)
