Adventures in the Kitchen with Michelle, PB2 Cookies

The Boys ate ALL the cookies being cooped up in the house this weekend – well, that was their excuse. It was like 50 deg ALL DAY! (Lauri, don’t read that).

So, as Will headed out the door this morning he requested Peanut Butter Cookies. Yeah – I love Peanut Butter Cookies! Who doesn’t?! But, I can’t eat ’em. Is there any more fattening cookie…well, if there was a cheesecake cookie maybe. (Hmmm, sounds good, I’ll have work on that whole cheesecake thing)

I digress…remember sometime ago I blogged about a new product called PB2, where they dried the peanut butter and removed the fat and most of the calories. No, No they really did! No Lie! I had a failed attempt at adding in a recipe instead of peanut butter and ruined it. Hey, if I could find a dryer big enough would my butt shrink like a wool sweater??!

Well, the people that actually make PB2 have their own little set of recipes on their site http://www.bellplantation.com and they sell PB2 along with the oil that they removed from the peanuts, kinda funny. The cookie recipe looked tasty, but still had two kinds of sugar, ooo gotta fix that. Off to the kitchen for some fun…

Step 1: Gather the goods. You did find some of that fabulous dried peanut butter stuff didn’t you? Light that fire – 350 please.

Hey, what’s wrong with this picture? You guessed it, there’s No Fat.
Step 2:
Add the sugars and wet ingredients together and mix well. Add in the PB2 and whisk until smooth. Mmmmmm, can you smell it?

Step 3:
This stuff is super sticky…no fat remember! So, use the scooper and don’t completely fill it.

Step 4:
Use a fork brushed with butter or easier yet, dipped in a little water and smash them a bit just like normal PB Cookies.

Step 5:

The Facts:
Can you believe they’re only 43 calories!!! Yea, a little dry and could be only slightly sweeter….but 43 calories, and how much fat???? OMG! Mwwa-HaHaHaHa!!!
