166. The kind of skinny cookie

I’m back on a Pinterest kick, although this go around, I’m pleased to say I’m actually making/doing some of my pinned items.  Today’s Pinterest project, low calorie peanut butter cookies.

The Recipe

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg

Mix.  Bake at 350 for ten minutes.  That’s it.

The Verdict

They taste really good.  In fact, I think they taste a hellava lot like regular pb cookies.

The Downside

So, I’m not entirely how these got circulated around as being only 35 calories a cookie, but that is a lie.  Maybe if you use reduced fat peanut butter, egg whites and a sugar replacement, but if you make the recipe as instructed, you’re looking at probably closer to 100 calories a cookie.  1 cup of peanut butter packs some mega calories (like 1600).

While not a mere 35 calories per cookie, this recipe is a skinnier version of a regular peanut butter cookie, which also has butter and flour.

Bottom line

A Pinterest success.  Yummy and kind of skinny and something I’ll make again.
