I didn't put this in just for Medifast. It was a low calorie option.

OOOOO BAD one for Fat Flush.... Peanut Butter, and Splenda are NOT ALLOWED. If you are on FAT FLUSH don't eat these you'll be gaining not losing! weight
If you use fat-free peanut butter I don't see why they wouldn't be allowed

depends on the diet you're on. For South Beach NATURAL peanut butter would be best. The problem with low fat or fat free is they add sugar to it. check the serving size for your diet of PB !

All peanuts have some fat even dry roasted. But good fat!

I love this recipe. It's in my recipe box in my kitchen! :) Hubby & I tried this recipe after seeing it on Paula Deen's show! ;) They cookies are very crumbly, but they are totally MELT-IN-YOUR-MOUTH good!

These are good. I guess I made smaller cookies because I got 30 out of the receipe, but it works for me. Still satisfying and less calories, fat and all that other stuff! BTW, even the kids liked them.

Per the Paula Deen website, here are the correct measurements: 1 egg 1 cup sugar, or 1 1/3 cup sugar replacement (recommended: Splenda) (only 1 c goes into cookies) 1 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
