Try It Tuesday

Try It Tuesday Cooking Badge

Last week, I decided to go “low carb” for the week. My weight loss had been plateau-ing for a while and I was getting frustrated. Plus, I’ve been doing this get fit summer challenge from Buzzfeed and was starting to see the scale creep up (because lifting weights is a hunger-inducing business, y’all).

 

Anyway, I needed to find some way to still have some treats while I was abstaining from carbs. And praise The Lord, I found this!

They’re low-carb peanut butter cookies! Here’s what you need:

~1 cup peanut butter (I used Jif Omega-3)

~1 cup Splenda (you could use Stevia if you like but it’s a little bitter for my taste)

~1 egg

 

That’s it! That’s all you need!

 

Preheat your oven to 350*. Then, toss everything into a bowl and combine.

Scoop out about a tablespoon onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. I used a cookie scoop and it worked wonders! Then, dip a fork in Splenda and press down the dough rolls.

Pop them in the oven for 12 minutes, and then let them cool.

Then, devour!

OMG, y’all, these cookies were DELICIOUS! They really helped me get through those cravings when I really wanted something sweet. And, to be honest, the low-carb thing wasn’t that bad. I mean, there was one day I really wanted some waffle fries from Chick-Fil-A, but for the most part, it went well. I think part of that was because I had a cold and it sort of took my appetite away. But it helped! I lost 3lbs and an inch off my waist! Yay!
