These were awesome, and I think they may have saved my fiancee and three cats because I was ready to kill someone for a cookie. They were very satisfying and had a great crumbly, cookie texture, plus they were visually satisfying, which sometimes is half the craving battle. Also, I only ate two, and they were so surprisingly rich that I only wanted two. The next time I make these I may add a pinch of salt because I used SmartBalance PB which isnt' as salty.

GROSSSSS!!! OMG you should save your time and money on this one. All it comes out to is dry crumbly peanut butter. Your better off eating a spoonfull of peanut butter.

I have made these for years. This is the best recipe for these cookies. It is 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 large egg, 1 Cup granulated splenda, 1 teaspoon vanilla Follow the rest of the recipe. The main thing is not to overbake or they will totally fall apart when you bite into them.

Peanut butter is not induction. Not according to all the things I've read.

these were not good, they were dry and bitter and did not hold together. i think too much splenda. maybe a mix of sweetners would be better. half splenda and half truvia?

Should be okay on Keto Diet, maybe adding another egg and some flaxseed meal might hold it together a little better. Can't wait to try it :>

I think this cookie is great. I baked it for 10-11 min instead of 12 min. No diet cookie is usually as tasty as a regular cookie but this one comes close. I welcome any flour/sugar free treat!

I got this recipe when my son was in first grade. That was 1972.. He was 5 yrs old. It called for 1 cup of sugar and made about 50-60 bite sized cookie balls. Of course, now, I make them with a mix of splenda and xylitol... (I never use Splenda alone. I think it becomes bitter) Mixed with another sweetener seems to help. I've been thinking of adding just a bit of coconut flour? to bulk them up some, but they really are an easy cookie. If they are crumbly, they were baked too long. they are very fragile when hot...
Adding about a tablespoon of cream cheese will help with holding the cookies together. Also I would suggest not using packets of Splenda because the bulking agents like Maltodextrin add carbs. Either use liquid Stevia, liquid sucralose(what I used), or Swerve(I've used before, but has that weird/gross cooling effect).
