Magical Penut Butter Cookies

My boys LOVE peanut butter cookies! I cannot keep them in my house or even on the kitchen counter on the cooling racks 😉  This is a really simple recipe and tastes so good!  Perfect for holiday’s or any day!  I must admit that I like to sneak a few off the cooling rack too!

Magical Peanut Butter Cookies
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 18 cookies
  • 1 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy
  • 1⅓ cups baking sugar replacement (recommended: Splenda) or you can use granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease a large baking sheet.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, 1 cup sugar replacement, the egg, and vanilla, and stir well with a spoon.
  4. Roll the dough into balls the size of walnuts.
  5. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. With a fork, dipped in sugar replacement to prevent sticking, press a crisscross design on each cookie - this is optional and I don't always do this.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes, remove from the oven, and sprinkle the cookies with some of the remaining sugar replacement.
  8. Cool slightly before removing from pan.

    I make mine with 2 eggs, it makes them nice a chewy. The egg is the magic ingreedient in these gluten free cookies.

      I will have to try that – these are delicious as is. I have been making them for 15 years! Long before I was even gluten free!

    Yes it is sugar free. I didn’t see where it said how many carbs. But it says low carb. I do believe it is.

    I made mine a little bigger ,so I got 15 cookies… I plugged the ingredients into the spark recipe calculator, and this is what it spit out per cookie…. net carbs would be 4.2 per cookie.

    i so wanted these to work. Not sure why they didn’t. I made 2 batches and the first ones spread out and were wet and gooey. The next batch I added an extra egg and they ended up spongy and wet in the middle. I used Jif regular and xylitol sugar substitute. So sad it didn’t work. :(
