This soft and chewy low-carb cookie recipe, developed by our Test Kitchen, calls for canola oil instead of butter to reduce the saturated fat. It's hard to eat just one!

"These cookies taste absolutely delicious! My kids absolutely loved them. My only complaint is that they're a bit crumbly. They definitely have no chewy factor. Maybe this is because I used all natural peanut butter? Regardless, they taste great, even if the texture isn't really my thing."

"The chunky peanut butter is the best! The little peanuts and big peanut butter flavor really shine through in this cookie. GREAT recipe!"
