I am not sure who gave me this recipe years ago. But when my son’s sweet tooth hits these are perfect (and an easy snack in the summer)! Secretly I love the extra protein I get when I munch on them also. Very diabetic friendly!
1 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
1 1/3 cups granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla.
Extra granular Splenda for fork
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine all of the ingredients in a small mixing bowl; beat well with a spoon until it becomes a thick dough. Gently roll into 20 balls and place on a baking sheet. Or, use a 2-teaspoon cookie scoop to evenly measure the dough. Dip a fork in granular Splenda and make a criss-cross design by gently pressing into the balls of dough in alternating directions. Be gentle and dip the fork into Splenda frequently because the dough is very sticky. Bake at 350º for 12-15 minutes. Cool before removing from the baking sheet. Store in the freezer and do not thaw before eating.
