Flourless & Low Cal Peanut Butter Cookies

(Click on the image for a larger view.)

I got a recipe for flourless peanut butter cookies from Kalyn's Kitchen; I followed the recipe to a T for my boyfriend, but I wanted a lower calorie version for me.

I substituted the egg for Egg Beaters and the peanut butter for various low fat peanut butters. The cookies are a little crisp on the outside and soft on the inside; they don't crumble easily.

Use the cookies in an ice cream sandwich, or flip one over and cover the flat side with banana slices. Add chunks of dark chocolate and/or chopped peanuts!

Servings: 8
-1/2 serving Egg Beaters (30g/2 T)
-1/2 cup granulated Splenda
-1/2 t baking powder
-1/4 t vanilla extract
-1/2 t tap water
-8 T creamy reduced fat peanut butter substitute*

*I used 4 T Better 'n Peanut Butter, 2 T SnacLite Power PB, and 2 T PB2 powdered peanut butter.

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2) Put Egg Beaters, Splenda, vanilla, and baking powder in a mixing bowl, and beat from low to high for 1 minute.

3) Add water and peanut butter substitute, and beat for another minute from low to high.

4) Put parchment paper on a jelly roll sheet, and use a tablespoon to measure out 8 cookies. Smooth the tops with the bottom of the tablespoon.

5) Bake for 15 minutes.

  1. i'm not so into healthy desserts, so i like all the ideas like turning them into an ice cream sandwich or adding chunks of dark chocolate, or maybe just melting some chocolate and dunking them in?

  2. that sounds delicious. I provided a link to the full-fat version with real peanut butter and eggs! swirling some softened cream cheese in the batter might be good too.
