I loved these cookies. Of course they aren't going to taste like the full fat, full sugar version, but I really liked them. I followed the directions, but I used regular sugar to press them down with a fork. When they first came out of the oven they were a bit crumbly, but after they cooled and I placed them in an airtight container, they softened up and were no longer crumbly. I will definitely be making these again as DH and I are both trying to eat healthier this year. Thank you Dojemi.

I watched Paula make these the other day & she appeared to really like them so I was so excited to see this already posted here! While I thought these were good and yes, great for low carb dieters, they did not go over well with the rest of my family. I would make these again for myself, but I would probably use a little less splenda when rolling the balls since the artificial sweetener taste was a bit strong for me. Overall, a decent tasting snack when you really want a little something sweet but you're trying to be good!:)

Updated Review: These cookies were a crumbled easily the first time I made them, but had a good flavor. I recently tried them again and had much better luck with them. I used a different brand of peanut butter. I think that made a huge difference. These are a nice low carb snack.
