Thankfully the box of NuNaturals goodies came with recipes. I found a recipe, a sweet one of course, that had few ingredients and ingredients that I had in my pantry.
I settled on a recipe called 'Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies With Tagatose', however I did have to make a few substitutes. I used a regular egg instead of an 'organic' egg and I used almond butter instead of peanut butter; I don't think the changes made a difference.
I mixed up all the ingredients and then rolled them up into little balls, plopped them onto a cookie sheet and then pressed a fork into them to give them character.
After I pulled them from the oven I had to let them cool on the cookie sheet before I dove in for a taste test because they were not firm and would fall apart so I had to be patient. After they cooled a bit, I did my taste test. They tasted just like peanut butter cookies, soft not crunchy, a little bit too sweet but they were not bad and my husband agreed. I sent a few home with some friends and they also said that they were good and that their kids enjoyed them as well.
Now normally I can eat a batch of cookies, without even blinking, but I only ate one of these and let me tell you why. On the package it states 'Warning (that is always scary): Tagatose may have a laxative effect with excessive consumption. If this happens, reduce consumption.' Now the words 'laxative effect' scare the heck out of me. I don't want to be in a situation, especially while on the road, where I have a panic emergency poo attack (yep, I said poo), so I only ate one. I am a sweet lover so I knew that if it did not have this warning I would have at least eaten six!
