Stevia Coconut Peanut Butter Cookies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Roosie

Stevia is a South American herb that is virtually calorie-free and hundreds of times sweeter than table sugar (which is why you only need 2 tsp in a recipe that might need a 2 cups of sugar). You can probably find it at your local health food store and I know Trader Joe's carries it with their baking goods. This recipe is from "Stevia Sweet Recipes" by Jeffrey Goettemoiller and I got it from www.rochestergoodfood.com.

Delicious! This cookie definitely satisfied my sweet tooth. I replaced the peanut butter with an almond nut butter and the butterscotch flavoring with almond extract. They were soft and the texture with the coconut was great! I will definitely be making these again.
