I rarely bake. But I had these lovely candies from Atkinson’s Candy Company on my counter and I couldn’t help but take a shot at whipping up some cookies using them! These cookies not only taste amazing… but they contain only 7.5g of Carbohydrates! This is a fantastic little treat that doesn’t require me to give Allison any additional insulin. Around here… we call that a “free snack”. As you can imagine… free snacks are popular.
Here’s the recipe I used. I’ve adapted a basic peanut butter cookie recipe to make it low-carb and diabetes friendly.
1 cup of peanut butter (You could use low carb for this and make your treats even lower in carbs…I used regular Peter Pan)
1 cup sugar substitute (I used Splenda)
1 tsp of vanilla extract
6 finely crushed bite sized pieces of Chick-O-Stick
Mix all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
Scoop rounded teaspoons of the mix onto your cookie sheet. (I was able to get 12 cookies)
Bake on 350* for 12 minutes or until cookies have set.
Allow your cookies to cool before eating or they’ll fall apart!
Disclosure: I was compensated by Atkinson Candy Company to write a promotional post and participate in a Twitter party on the evening of Oct. 2nd. This post was a bonus for you! Just for fun and to fill my tummy with cookies. *nom*
