Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

     Can you think of two better friends than Peanut Butter and Oatmeal.  They just love being together...especially in the same bite!  With a few simple tricks, I turned these "besties" into reduced fat wonders.  Each of these 18 cookies are only 33 calories, 3g net carbs, 3g protein and .7g fat.  The real magic comes in your first bite, may have barely any fat...but no one would ever know!  Yeah me!!!  ;)

Ingredients for 18 Peanut Butter Cookies~
3/4 cup Quick Cooking Oats (I purchased an off brand and the Oats were more meal and less flakes)
1/2 cup/4oz unsweetened Applesauce
3 Tablespoons Egg Whites
1/4 cupPeanut Butter Powder
1/4 cup Lakanto Monk Fruit~use code Paige20 for discount at checkout
