Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 1 cup Natural Creamy Peanut Butter 1/3 Less Sodium & Sugar
  • 1 large Egg (Whole)
  • 1 cup Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 0 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 4 oz Lily's Sugar Free Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tbsp Heavy Cream


This recipe is suitable for all phases of the Atkins diet except the first two weeks of Induction. One serving is one cookie.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the peanut butter, egg, granular sugar substitute, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Mix until all ingredients are fully incorporated. It will thicken up with stirring into a semi-firm dough.
  3. Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Make 6 equal balls out of each quarter of dough. About 24 cookies total. Place balls on sheet leaving 1-inch between each. Flatten slightly by lightly pressing down on each with the bottom of a glass (do not over flatten, leave it thick enough for the thumb print well).
  4. Bake for 7 minutes, remove from oven, make indentations in the center by pressing the handle end of a wooden spoon into each cookie, return to the oven and bake until edges are golden another 8-10 minutes more. Allow to sit on the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack, cool completely.
  5. Place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl with the cream. Microwave in 10-20 second intervals stirring in between until chocolate is melted. Stir to fully incorporate the cream and smooth out the texture. Spoon about 1 tsp of chocolate into the indentations in the cookies. Allow chocolate to set up, this can be done quickly by placing the finished cookies in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes.
  6. Store cookies in a single layer in a air tight container for up to 1 week. The nutritionals listed are for 1 cookie.
