Just made these, amazing! Followed the base recipe but substituted PB fit instead of peanut butter to cut the sugar and carbs even further. Didn't get to the fridge step, hubby dug in while they were cooling and the taste and texture were perfect. Great consistency, not dry, tasted like a soft-baked cookie. Very easy to whip together, will make these again for sure! Read More

You have to drunk these in some type of milk. I just wish I could find a keto recipe that satisfies my sweet tooth and that's actually good. I even tried adding mayo and a little bit of low carb milk as I read in the comments. After the first batch I tried under baking them and Nope still so dry. I won't be making these again. Read More

I following the recipe with two minor changes: 1) I used Swerve instead of Truvia 2) I used 2/3 cup smooth peanut butter and 1/3 cup extra crunchy. Next time I will add a little more Swerve to make it a bit sweeter but overall these came out pretty good. I miss eating sweets! Read More
