I have been adapting recipes little by little to make healthier cookies and meals for my son. This cookie is not sweet but to me more like a cookie biscuit. You don't have to give up everything you love, find a way to make it close, we all are in supporting this new life change of diabetes that my son has to eat healthier.
You get the taste of chocolate and peanut butter and they are not dry because of some of the ingredients I added which made them quite tasty.
Here's what you need:
1 1/2 cup wheat flour ( I have also used oatmeal flour)
1 mashed very ripe banana
1 packet of artificial sweetener (the size you find in restaurants, I used stevia.) use more to taste
1 stick butter or margarine
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup carob chips or other sugarless chocolate chips or use 1/2 cup chopped apples
Mix the butter and packet together. Add the egg, peanut butter, vanilla and banana. Mix in the flour and baking powder. Fold in the chips. Drop on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees preheated oven until they start to brown
