Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies

Makes 32 Cookies

1 egg
1 egg white (I used from a whole egg vs the carton)
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp vanilla or unflavored whey protein powder
1/2 cup Krisda stevia baking formula or 12 packets of stevia
1/2 cup almond meal (ground almonds in food processor)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup all natural peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 F

In a large bowl, lightly beat egg & egg white. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Form little balls with a teaspoon or your hands and place on a lightly sprayed or parchment lined baking sheet.  Press with a fork.

Bake for 9 minutes. Balls will puff up and lightly brown. Cool for a few minutes before eating
