Great cookies but man they gave me a horrible case of the PBS last time I ate them (Peanut Butter Shits) Substitute the brown sugar instead of all regular sugar for better results

Great cookies - easy to make, modify & watch disappear! Used 1 cup sugar: 1/2 dk brown & 1/2 lt brown. 3/4 cup crunchy pnut butter, 1/4 cup chocolate hazelnut spread. Added the baking powder & vanilla. Also added ~1/2 cup oatmeal. Topped with walnut half or pnut M&M before baking ~325 for 7-8 mins. Submitted by:

The first time I made these, I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious! So simple and so yummy. The next time I baked these I added 1c chocolate chips, and that was awesome too, though even more sugar/cals. I love that this recipe is so simple I have it memorized. Submitted by:

First, a word of warning: NEVER use Amish Peanut Butter in place of regular/reduced fat. (Amish Peanut Butter is TERRIBLE for you, but my mother gave me some so I decided to use it in this recipe.) The Amish Peanut Butter doesn't hold. Because of this, I made peanut butter bars. Submitted by:

LOVE these! I add a little more Splenda, use the lowest carb peanut butter I can find and een my hubby loves the delicate crispiness. Better than meringue cookies! Submitted by:

Made them last weekend. Used brown sugar (2/3 of a cup), 1/4 cup of choc chip. Kids loved them. Kids visiting friends loved them, adults loved them too. First time I was able to have just one cookie and feel satisfied.
I made a batch of about 40 cookies and by the end of the weekend they were gone

For me this recipe works well with just 3/4 cup sugar. My late husband used to make these all the time for a quick easy treat! Adding chocolate chips make them even better! Submitted by:

These r awesome! I am gluten intolerant so these r a real treat! I make them with stevia so there Is no sugar at all and way less calories and they won't negatively effect ur insulin. Does anyone out there have an opinion about stevia use in this or any other recipe? Submitted by:

I did these with splenda instead of sugar. they were quite crumbly, although firmed up when cool. Don't think they would stand up to the rigors of a lunchbox. The boys (kids) loved them and the girls didn't really like them... Will try with sugar next time and see if they are firmer. Submitted by:

At first, I wondered how this cookies would turn out being that they don't have any flour or anything. But, they turned out great. I made half a batch and made 7 cookies and they were huge! I made them with brown sugar and I added cinnamon and vanilla as well as baking powder. Delicious! Submitted by:

I LOVE cookies and these ones were great! I made mine with the baking powder and vanilla extract. I also added oatmeal to half of the batter and it tasted great! The ones without the oatmeal were a bit soft, but its because I didn't use all the sugar. The oatmeal helped with that problem though. Submitted by:

I used natural peanut butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon white sugar, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and about 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla. I rounded them a bit and flatten slightly with a fork. Baked them for 10 min--could have used a minute longer for my oven. Delicious! Submitted by:

I was excited to see I had these ingredients in my pantry as I was craving sweets like crazy! I used brown sugar & added a wee bit of vanilla (as suggested). I was able to get 24 cookies from this recipe and they cooked in 8 minutes!! They are delicious for flour-less & butter-less cookies!! Submitted by:

I WAS skeptical but made these anyway. I used the suggested vanilla and b/p additions the pb I had was low sugar and low sodium so I left the sugar at 1 C. I made them with my Daycare and they were a big hit! Making them AND eating them I call these Amazing PB cookies! :-) I got 36 to the recipe. Submitted by:

In response to somebody who asked if you could use oatmeal in this recipe. Yes you can. I once made a very similar recipe using no flour but with cheerios. 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 egg and 1 cup cheerios. They were delicious. Defeats the no gluten purpose though. Submitted by:

This was wonderful! Made 1 batch with 1/2 c sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and 1/4 tsp baking powder. Loved it. Then tried with all natural PB, mix was "soupy" so added 1/4 c quick oakmeal. The texture was better but not as tasty as regular PB. Submitted by:

My 12-year old daughter and I made these, I only used half the sugar and added the 1/4 tsp of baking powder, and 1 tsp of vanilla. For an added touch and an extra boost of protein we put a honey roasted almond right in the middle after we flattened and criss-crossed them. My whole family loved them. Submitted by:
