Not Yet Perfect Cookies

I apologize for these cookies. First of all, I just threw stuff together based on a peanut butter cookie recipe that I've seen everywhere. Our peanut butter expired last month so I couldn't use it. Since I have two packs of toasted cashews, I decided to use that. This recipe is highly tweakable, hence the name, and I'm already thinking up ways to improve it.

Not Yet Perfect Cookies
Makes 10, net carb 3g each

100 g cashews (or any nut, I will try peanuts next time)
1 egg
1 T butter
6 packets Splenda
pinch of baking powder
vanilla extract
salt (because the cashews weren't salted)

Grind the cashews. Add the rest of the ingredients. Drop cookie dough onto a prepared cookie sheet. I used a teaspoon and got 10 cookies. Bake at 350 until the edges are brown. Cool.

Ideas for tweaks:
Don't grind all the nuts finely. Maybe add chopped nuts.
Chopped chocolate.
This wasn't sweet enough so maybe add a couple packets of Splenda.
Try other nuts

I Rise From Laziness

Hello to those who still drop by. I haven't updated my blog in so long. I apologize. As usual, real life has a way of derailing well... real life. I got a job, got tired of the job, quit the job and found another one. Went to Singapore and had an awesome time but also ate off plan. Went back to Induction but couldn't handle it. Now eating low carb and still hating my scale.

I hope to update this blog soon with more recipes and food porn pics :) Thanks and have a great day!
