Peanut Butter Cookies

The holiday baking season has officially begun at my house!  I love baking everything from cakes and pies to cookies and candies, and I get a lot of enjoyment out of sharing these treats with others.  But over the years, I’ve found that more and more people in my family have diets that require them to lower their sugar intake, which means they can’t partake in all the holiday goodies.  And still others are skipping out on the dessert, because they don’t want to put on “the extra pounds.”

Since I can’t eat all the desserts all by myself,  I’ve decided to try a few recipes with SPLENDA®.

Splenda Sugar Blend

The SPLENDA® SWEET SWAPS™ iniative is encouraging people to make smart healthy lifestyle decisions this holiday season.  One way you can do this is by swapping out the sugar that you use in your baked goods for one cup of  SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener.

Did you know that when you swap one cup of sugar for one cup of SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, you save more than 600 calories?

And when you consider that the average American woman consumes more than three times the recommended amount of sugar per day, and the average American man consumes more than double the recommended amount, I think it’s safe to save we could all use a SPLENDA® SWEET SWAP™.

Splenda at Walmart

You can find SPLENDA® Sugar Blend and other SPLENDA® products in the baking aisle at Walmart. And you can also order the product on Walmart.com.

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Today I’m doing a SPLENDA® SWEET SWAP™ on a classic favorite:  Peanut Butter Cookies.

When I want peanut butter cookies, this has been my go-to recipe.  One reason is because they are SO delicious.  And another reason is because they are easy-peasy to make!

I’m the type of person who always has her recipe handy when cooking, even when I’m cooking something that I’ve made hundreds of times, and even on the simplest recipes, because I’m paranoid that I’ll do something wrong…but this recipe is one where I never need to look at my recipe!

Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

1 Cup Peanut Butter

1 Cup SPLENDA® Sugar Blend

1 egg

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients in a medium size bowl and mix well.

Roll out a sheet of parchment paper onto a cookie sheet. Get a little SPLENDA® Sugar Blend on your hands to keep cookie dough from sticking to you. Then roll your dough in to one inch balls.

Place the balls on your cookie sheet a couple of inches apart. Then take a fork and lightly press the cookie balls down. (This will help the cookies to spread out during the baking process.)

If your fork is sticking to the cookies, try covering it in a little SPLENDA® as well, to prevent the sticking.

Bake 6-10 minutes (depending on your oven). Cookies should be just set in the middle, and not too dark around the edges.
