I haven't tried this recipe yet but I couldn't pass up posting it because I don't want to lose it and others might enjoy a "legal" cookie recipe. I'm totally guessing at the yield. Zaar is listing the calorie and fat content (mostly fron the nuts) for a dozen cookines. Dividing 12 into that amount breaks down to each cookie having 33.5 calories. If you wish to lower it more just use less nuts.

I made this recipe because a local mechanic came to my rescue. He is a diabetic. I had never made a diabetic dessert before.
That being said, this recipe is really easy and fun to make. I couldn't find any sugar-free chocolate chips, so I used semi-sweet and chopped then up really fine. The taste of Splenda is not the greatest, but I think this is a great sweet treat for the diabetics out there. I haven't heard if my mechanic friend liked them, but if not, that's okay, my mom and I sure enjoyed them!
