Sugarless and Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies...


I have seen so many variations of this cookie on Pinterest, Blogs and Facebook
that I finally decided to give the recipe a try.

I am so glad I did.  
What a delicious cookie...you will NOT miss the sugar at all, or the FLOUR.

Sugarless and Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies...




No Sugar/No Flour Peanut Butter Cookies








Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup Splenda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter 
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 1/3 cup chopped peanuts (optional)

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl,  beat together the egg, Splenda, baking powder, and vanilla for about a minute. 
Add peanut butter and water and beat together.
The mixture will be pretty dry; just make sure the peanut butter is blended in with the other ingredients.
Measure out a heaping teaspoon of batter for each cookie, then using a fork, make indentations into each cookie.  
Spray the fork with cooking spray so it doesn't stick to the cookie.
Bake 15 minutes until cookies feel firm and are slightly browned.


Delicious...



These cookies are perfect if you're trying to watch your sugar intake
or just trying to watch your calories.

If you really need to be careful with sugar, you should try to use
 a natural peanut butter brand or one that is lower in sugar.  

The original recipe that I used can be found HERE.  



Enjoy your day and get baking!

  4. Now I know! I just made these over the weekend and I was wondering if I could substitute Splenda for the sugar. So good to know!

  8. I love peanut butter on my apples and bananas, but I've never eaten a peanut butter cookie - how weird is that? This looks like the easiest recipe ever and I'm going to add this to my 'holiday cookie' exchange. I know everyone will love it.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Joanne
