Butter Peanut Cookies (egg-free)
I have a new recipe for egg-free cookies. I am really surprised how good they taste. This one is buttery peanut butter.
6 TB 70 calorie margarine
1/2 cup plus 2 TB of peanut butter preferably Natural
1/2 cup Splenda or = valent
2 tsp milled flax seed
1 tsp water
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 TB imitation low calorie mayonnaise (heaping TB)
1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder like Sego or Carnation
Combine everything in a small to medium sized bowl
Drop by half TB onto baking pan and bake at 350 degrees F until set like a toll house cookie, 8 minutes or so.
Remove from pan carefully with a metal spatula.
Makes about 30 cookies.
45 calories ea. but only 2.5 carb. Gr.
I always like a couple of these, three if I'm famished with vanilla yogurt or vanilla yogurt with frozen berries, sugar less versions of all. It is very filling. A splurge and a great meal substitution, protein, milk and fruit all at once.
