Have you tried the cookies made with NO sugar and NO flour?

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.  These peanut butter cookies are delicious 
and you will NOT miss the sugar at all, or the FLOUR.  That's right, sugarless and flourless peanut butter cookies that taste amazing.  You need to make these cookies tonight! 






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)

Instructions

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.


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.

  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!

  5. I love this recipe! My MIL will be living with us soon and is on a restricted diet, but loves her sweets. I will have to make these for her.

    Thanks for linking up to the In and Out of the Kitchen party. I look forward to seeing what you bring next week.

  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

    2. I used Kraft peanutbutter, so you'd have to adjust the nutritional info (each of my cookies contained 2 tsp of peanut butter so go from there), but this is what I have for mine:

      Per cookie (I got 24 cookies out of this recipe)
      60 calories
      5.3g total fat
      1g saturated fat
      1.5 polyunsaturated
      2.6g monounsaturated
      40.3g sodium
      2.7g total carbs
      0.7g dietary fiber
      0.7g sugars
      2.0g protein

      Thanks for this recipe by the way, it's fantastic. Far better than the recipes that don't call for baking powder and call for 1 1/3 cups splenda (1 cup is more than enough!)

  10. I would like to substitute the splenda with honey,do I still put 1 cup in?

    1. Kandy...I just ran across this recipe and was wondering if you were able to get an answer to your question? I would like to use Stevia or maybe a combination of honey and stevia. I no longer trust the artificial sweeteners.

  11. I'm sharing this in my Saturday Round Up email, Lois. It looks great, and it's awesome for anyone who is counting carbs. Only change I'd make is to use Xylitol (which, despite the weird name, is a natural sweetener) instead of Splenda.

  12. Isn't Splenda an artificial sweetner? That would be my only concern with this recipe. Otherwise it sounds quite good.

  13. I've made flourless peanut butter cookies before but not sugarless ones. Thanks for sharing this version at Merry Monday! :)

  14. I suppose if one is Diabetic then this recipe may suffice. It is certainly not healthy as Splenda is an artificial sugar substitute, complete with side effects.
