Enjoy These Guilt-Free Cookies Anytime!

My husband and I both love warm peanut butter cookies straight out of the oven! Problem is, we're both diabetic and regulate our carb and sugar intake. Problem goes away - my new recipe made in a smaller batch size with Splenda sugar substitute! The taste is the same! But the snack is much more healthy for us.

A day after I baked these, my little 12 year old friend Nicole came with her mom for dinner and she enjoyed these cookies a LOT! So Moms out there, these cookies do pass the kid test! They definitely pass the husband test, and the "me" test!

I added a touch of oatmeal just for a bit more healthy goodness and texture. And hey - since January is National Oatmeal Month, you can celebrate with a batch of these cookies!

Add your favorite ingredients to this dough – chocolate chips, raisins, fresh coconut, macadamia nuts, pecans, walnuts – use your imagination!

Tools To Help You Bake Great Cookies On Amazon! - I Personally Own Some Of These Exact Products!

Some of my things are too old to find, but some are newer and I've found them for you here!

I just bought the Wilton Jumbo Cookie Spatula and it is, as they say, "The Bomb!" You can lift a great big 4" cookie off a hot sheet onto a serving plate with no breaking - miraculous!! I don't know how I lived without it.

I also own the Paula Deen beautiful speckle Mixing Bowls, they are so functional and yet pretty enough to serve meals in! Mostly, they make me happy to work with and look at while I'm cooking and isn't that's what's really important?

If you haven't baked on silicone sheets, you need to try if you want to have the perfectly baked cookies you get in bakeries. The bottoms are perfectly golden brown, not burned! When I switched to silicone, my cookie quality went up about 100% instantly!

Freezing Tips For Portion Control!

It's much easier to resist frozen dough than it is hot baked cookies! Prep your cookie dough as though to bake on a cookie sheet and freeze. Remove dough as soon as frozen and store in a freezer container. Now when you want just a few cookies, you can remove just what you want and bake anytime!

This dough freezes very well! See my tips for prepping dough for freezing.

If desired, press design on top of cookies with fork before baking. This cookie dough freezes well.
