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."

"Just made these with my boys and they are wonderful. Crunchy on the outside & moist in the middle. I just can't bring myself to make a cookie recipe that call for 3/4 cups of butter. Another great thing about this recipe is that its easily made vegan. I substituted the eggs for two flax seed eggs, with great results. I heat my flax and water for 40 seconds or so in the microwave to get the consistency of eggs before adding to cookies. Worked like a charm;)"

"These turned out great! I gave them 4 stars instead of 5 because they don't hold together as well as other, more fatty :) cookies, but no big deal. Great taste without being so full of fat and calories."
