I love creating snacks that contain healthy ingredients and are low in calories! Of course, there are times to indulge and throw calorie counts out the window, but for me, I choose to keep track of my calories when I am trying to lose weight or I get off track…FAST!
So, you won’t always see calorie counts for 90% of the foods on our blog, but I am just so tickled that these skinny cookies contains only 250 calories (in the whole batch!), I couldn’t help but share it with you.
Now, let me just say...this recipe is not for you if you can eat a box of Girl Scout cookies twice a week and your waistline stays slim and trim.
By the way, I can’t relate to you people.
We can still be friends, just don’t mention your freakish metabolism to me. 😉
Each skinny cookie contains about 60 calories and they don’t taste like cardboard.
Chocolate and peanut butter that I technically can have everyday if I want and not see any negative ramifications?? Can you tell I am a little excited?!
If you are not familiar with PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter, it is a dry powder made out of peanuts. You can add water to it and it magically turns into peanut butter without all the calories and fat.
When I am not using it for these cookies, I like to mix it into my plain Greek yogurt and eat it with diced apples. There are so many possibilities with this product!
This recipe easily makes 4 decent-sized skinny cookies that can be shared with your “Best Foodie Friend” or your children. But if sharing isn’t your strong suit, eat them all yourself! They pair perfectly with a warm mug of your favorite coffee! Enjoy!
