If you don't know it yet...I am a definite Cookie Monster! 

And sometimes I have to satisfy the cookie sweet tooth in my diabetic hubby too. This recipe was the perfect 'fit'. He really enjoyed these little gems. 

These great little cookies use crushed graham crackers for the 'flour'. They were easy to make and are on the 'healthier' side of sweets. 

This is another 'home run' recipe found at Diabetic Connect. I hope those of you who have to watch your sugar intake will enjoy these also. 

I made a double batch and ended up with 9 good sized cookies. 
I used 1 whole egg in the recipe instead of 2 egg yolks. 




HEALTHY PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES 


2 full graham cracker sheets

Add egg yolk and mix until smooth.  Add to graham and peanut butter mixture. Stir in milk; form balls. Place on cookie sheet sprayed with non stick cooking spray. Press flat with a wet fork and bake for 10 minutes.
