Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, Diabetic

First, when I say that these are diabetic by no means do I mean that that's it a cookie free for all. I have adapted this so that I can have a cookie or two on occasion. As soon as they are totally cool I layer them with waxed paper in a tightly closed container and hustle them into the freezer. Once in the freezer I don't suffer from "I need a cookie panic attacks". I'm happy knowing that they are there and easily available when I really want nibble on one (one will do the trick but two is so much nicer, lol)

Consider your blood levels and then decide if this would be a good choice for you
