As mentioned in my previous post about ways to be healthier for your Valentine, one of the aspects into being healthier is to use lower calorie ingredients in your cooking. This can be great to make a lower calorie treat for your loved one on Valentine’s Day or ANY day of the year! We really should treat our loved ones well every single day, and what better way than to show them with treats baked from the heart. Below you can see how I made my Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies with SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener to share with my loved ones!
