The cookies are magical because they are flour free!

Servings: 18 cookies
Prep Time: 20 min
Cook Time: 12 min

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 egg
1 cup sugar, or 1 1/3 cup sugar replacement (recommended: Splenda)
1 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy
1 teaspoon vanilla extract





Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a large baking sheet.

In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, 1 cup equivalent of the Splenda, the egg, and vanilla, and stir well with a spoon.  Roll the dough into balls the size of walnuts.  Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet.  With a fork, dipped in Splenda to prevent sticking, press a crisscross design on each cookie.  Bake for 12 minutes, remove from the oven, and sprinkle the cookies with some of the remaining Splenda. Cool slightly before removing from pan.

I finally found this recipe, been looking for it forever. I am a Weight Watchers member and need the nutritional information so I can count the points. I would appreciate the information on the total grams of Fat, Carbs, Fiber, & Protein.

No flour?

I'd say use at least half brown sugar for better flavor. I'd add a trace of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Excellent cookies. Use parchment paper and you do not have to grease the cookie sheet. It is amazing to make cookies without flour, they taste wonderful. Thanks Paula

Okay...made the first batch w 1-1/2c Stevia...turned out great. Made the second batch w 1C sugar and they all ran together. hmmm What's the deal w that?!?

I have tried this recipe before. The cookie is crumbly tender. I did add about 1/8th cup of chopped chocolate chips. This is a great cookie recipe for counting carbs, just leave off the chips!

Make these all the time for my family and love them. Very simple and easy. Always have ingredients on hand whenever my family gets a sweet tooth. grin

I thought they were very good. The only problem I had with these is they broke very easily when still hot. You have to be careful taking them off the pan, other then that they were very good.
