*PEANUT BUTTER OAT COOKIE*


This recipe is from Splendid Low-Carbing. It was one of those recipes that really - well, what can I say? - was not the greatest. There are not too many recipes that I'm not happy about (maybe a small handful out of the 5 low-carb cookbooks) - but there are a few - and, I wish in hindsight I had not included them. This recipe was unfortunate because it sounds so good and is extremely easy to make. The cookies were tasty but too dry. The problem was with the wheat bran and it needed another egg. Either reduce the wheat bran by half and replace the other half with almond flour or replace wheat bran entirely with almond flour and add one extra egg. I made these again the other day (using the latter suggestion) and also added some raisins, which is a nice addition (adds chewiness), but is more for maintenance levels of low-carbing. These cookies are best kept in the refrigerator. They add some good fiber to the diet and are a nice, healthy cookie. They freeze well and can even be eaten straight out of the freezer, if desired. The reason these made it into the book is a young lady aged 16 at the time loved these cookies so much that her rave review overrode my own good sense, plus I was tired and at the end of writing my book.

Sorry to the above poster for removing your post, but this blog is not about music videos or anything that looks a little pornographic, if you know what I mean. Thanks for your kind words about my blog though.
