Low carb peanut butter cookies

I know what your thinking..low carb cookies, ick. 
I will be the first to say that low carb is not really the easiest thing in the world to do, especially the first day when your tummy starts to rumble saying mean things like "Hey you, feed me before I really get mad!" or "You may think your fat but I like food!" 
Yeah, heard these a few times. So when I was told of these cookies that are very low in carbs I finally realized that low carb does not always have to be so ... blah.

These are very very simple to make. Only 3 ingredients. Yes, 3. Don't believe me? 

1 cup peanut butter (I buy the lowest carb count you can find)
1 cup splenda (Or other sugar substitute)
1 egg.

Mix together, spoon into ball shape and line them up on a baking sheet. Press down using a fork. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes on 350.
Done.

Ha! How simple was that?

And to be honest with you, they are pretty good! It gives you the feeling as if your "cheating" when really, they are no more than 2 grams of carbs per cookie. 





 They may not look like your average peanut butter cookie but when your dieting, does anything look normal? bahaha nope!

So if your ever doing the "low carb" diet, try these! They will give you a little satisfaction when your craving the sweet stuff!
