Ricotta Cookies

I need my sweets every so often.  Not need, need, but you know…  I want the sweet, crunchy satisfying feeling of a cookie.

So here’s another cool new recipe for you! Made them last night and loved them!

Ricotta Cookies

4 T natural peanut butter (I used crunchy and that was really yummy)

1 cup raw oats

1 cup reduced fat ricotta cheese

8 packets Stevia, or to taste (replace with some honey if you don’t like the taste of Stevia)

1 teaspoon baking powder

4 egg whites

a couple dashes of cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 and spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.  Mix all ingredients together with a fork until smooth.  Spoon cookies onto cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes until top of cookies start to brown.

 

My recipe made 16 nice sized cookies.  They came to 68.5 calories each with 3.5 g fat, 5 g carbs, 4.4 g protein and .75 g fiber. Not bad!

  1. it sounds really good! I am sceptical about the Stevia so I would use some honey…
