Just ate one of the choco chip cookies-FANTASTIC! AND, I only used 1 C choco chips (that's all I had). I also made a batch of the low-carb bake mix; since the amount of splenda was not specified, I used 1/3 C like the rest of the ingredients. I think that may have been just a tad bit too much. But, no complaints!

Thanks for commenting, Lucy. The low-carb bake mix is actually meant to be a replacement for flour, so it does not have any additional sweetener in it. Glad you liked the cookies. I like them too. I keep them in the refrigerator.

Hi Jennifer, I'm getting ready to make these awsome looking cookies for my Christmas treat. Can I use SweetzFree in them instead of the Splenda granular?

Thanks,
Kathy

Kathy, I don't see why not. I've never used liquid Splenda before, but taste and see. If you have some granulated erythritol too, that makes these cookies super awesome. You don't have to count the carbs with erythritol - no impact on blood sugar.
