‘This Low Sugar Cocoa Peanut Butter Cookies is really a tasty treat
Low Sugar Cocoa Peanut Butter Cookies
This cookie gives us both chocolate and peanut butter tastes.
Combining chocolate and peanut butter is a popular option. However, they also taste good when put together in a recipe. This is also a unique looking treat.
Using a baking mix makes this an easy recipe to make.
Tova Carbquick is a low carbohydrate baking mix that contains no sugar.Thus, it is used in this recipe.
Using ingredients with no or low sugar added is part of this recipe since it is a low sugar recipe.
Sugar free peanut butter is used to make these cookies. A sugar alternative, such as Splenda, is used as well. Another option could is to use sugar alternative of choice. As is unsweetened cocoa powder.
The only sugar that has been added to it came from the peanut butter. You are welcome to use the real thing. I prefer to go low on the sugar. I use sugar alternative and a low carb flour alternative- each listed on my sites.
