What I find delightful is peanut butter cookies. Here’s a version of the Joy of Cooking recipe toned down in fat and eliminating almost 95% 0f the sugar.
Heat oven 350 degrees. This recipe makes 3 doz. 2 1/2 inch cookies.

2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons (t) baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
pinch of salt

In another bowl
2 Tablespoons (T) olive oil (light in flavor)
1/2 cup (c) smooth peanut butter
3/4 stick butter
2 T xylitol ( from the health food store)
1/4 c brown sugar – or 2 T if you like it less sweet

Taste- if you want it sweeter add more xylitol

In a small bowl or cup
Mix 1 1/2 eggs (1 egg + 1 egg white will do it)2 t of vanilla.
Mix flour into peanut mixture. Add eggs and vanilla.

Roll into balls, (I flour my hands) put ’em on a sprayed cookie sheet, flatten them with a fork. You can add a little more flour if the balls seem a bit loose.
Bake 10 minutes Add more time if necessary but don’t over bake. These cookies will firm as they cook.

They’ll still have a lot of fat, so try a 1/2 cookie to see how they settle in your tummy. Wait an hour and test BG again.

I make about 1/3 of this recipe but only make 6 cookies. They ring up about 45 grams of carb. YMMV.

They’re great for breakfast.
