Diabetic Peanut Butter Cookies?
Could there be such a cookie? Honestly, this is my favorite Peanut Butter Cookie from KITCHEN 101. Every time I give out the recipe it becomes someone’s else’s favorite peanut butter cookie. I am doing some menu planning and a few weeks ago I included this recipe. When I asked how everything was going, she said she makes this Peanut Butter Cookie weekly. See, I told you everyone loves this cookie.

Change up your cookie with dark chocolate chips!
I admit that sometimes my chocolate sweet tooth gets the best of me and I toss in some dark chocolate chips. Dark chocolate is better for you and I love the contrast with the sweet cookie. Now, this will make the cookie not diabetic friendly!
Also, some kids don’t like the crunch, so you can leave out the peanuts and even use creamy peanut butter. At one time, I used the reduced fat peanut butter but my dietitian explained in this case, there is added sodium and sugar and you are better off with the regular version.
My diabetic friendly Peanut Butter Cookies freeze!!!
.OK, another admission that many of you probably already know. I eat cookies from my freezer every night. I limit myself to two cookies, most of the time. So, when I am making a batch of these peanut butter cookies, I usually double or triple the recipe to fill up my freezer.
