For Granny, With Love...

Ok, who doesn't love peanut butter? I really don't know of anybody! I think it was a little more than a year ago that my grandmother found at that she has celiac disease. Since then, I have been looking at different recipes that don't have gluten in them. The sad thing is, gluten is in just about everything and it definitely gives food a texture that you just miss! Well, I saw this recipe for flourless peanut butter cookies on Food Network and then I came across it again on the Allrecipes website. So, when my husband decided to try a low carb diet I decided to give them a try. The crazy thing is that they are so easy and really good! And get this...no dairy! Win, win for all. They have become a favorite around here. You can get the ingredients together in about 5 minutes. So, they are great for a quick homemade treat! I hope you like them as much as we do!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter
1/2 cup crunchy natural peanut butter
1/2 cup Splenda Blend for Baking
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all ingredients. Using a medium cookie scoop, drop cookie dough on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes on pan and then place on a cooling rack. Makes about 18 cookies depending on the size scoop you use.

1 cookie = 111 calories each

    My favorite PB cookies:
    1 cup peanut butter (smooth vs. creamy is a personal choice)
    1 cup sugar
    1 large egg
    Combine, pat into cookie shape, and bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 350.
    Way too easy and way too yummy!

    Thanks for the recipe! I have tried that one too! I really like the baking soda in it too. It gives a little more puff to the cookie! I also put vanilla in just about everything I can. I just love it!
