I have avoided making a lot of stuff with nuts in it b/c I feel bad when Mr. Two can't have any. BUT, the other day, I was reading a blog post over at The Candid RD and she reminded me about soynut butter. I've tried it before, along with sunflower butter, but my little man wasn't crazy about it. I did not however, think about baking with it. So, after reading her post I thought, hmmmm, I should make Mr. Two some soynut butter cookies! Let him have a taste of how the other half live. So, the other night after dinner I told my girls we were going to bake some cookies...I wanted something super quick and easy (it was a school night you know), and I remember seeing somewhere that you could make cookies with a cup of peanut butter, a cup of sugar and an egg. I was skeptical, but thought I'd give it a try....
With mods of course. Believe it or not, it worked!
I used -
- 1 cup soynut butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup NuNaturals Stevia Baking Blend
- 1 T. ground flax seed with 3 T. water to replace the egg (yes, he's allergic to those too!)
Mr. T. Two - enjoying his first non-peanut peanut butter cookie ;)
