Flourless peanut butter cookies

Posted on September 7, 2012 at 3:25am 2 Comments

These are just so delicious. You can add choc chips if you like, or coconut, or chopped nuts.

Ingredients

1 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup liquid stevia or substitute
1 egg

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Combine ingredients and drop by teaspoonfuls on cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool. Recipe doesn't make very many, so you could double recipe as you wish.

Diabetic Alert Dog?

I have had the most dreadful cold all week, the chemist refused to let me buy cold/flu tablets since they raise the blood pressure of diabetics so much, so I have been going it alone. I have actually never felt more alone in my life, no lemon and honey, hot blackcurrant drinks, no comfort at all, just me and a few boxes of tissues. I broke down and ate a mandarin orange one day, was delicious, but oh dear, did it ever raise my blood sugars! My little poodle behaved most oddly, snuggled up to…

Hello Maureen. I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your daughter's Border Collie. What a great picture of her! Our old Aggie has developed Epilepsy, which is aging her (she's 13). The loss of our pet companions is so difficult. My condolences to your daughter, and to you as well. Trudy

Maureen, oh my, with our frigid weather, it's hard for me to imagine your heat! I hope you get a break soon. Yay, tennis! As for the tablet to make me better making me feel worse in the meantime, that's exactly the situation. Reading some on my Kindle, waiting for time to pass...
