I made these peanutbutter cookies (sugar free) with my dad in mind. He has diabetes and really has to watch his sugar intake. When the kind folks at NECTRESSE™Sweetener contacted me about trying thier product I was interested. My first thought was…I will try it in my morning coffee…see how I like it…..I was surprised it was just as good as sugar.
My next goal was to see how it baked in a cookie. I really wanted to make a peanut butter cookie that my dad could enjoy too….I like the fact that this Nectresse sweetener is 100% natural–it is actually made from fruit. Win win! I would encourage you to go get your free sample and try it for yourself….just as sweet…no calories…love that.
