  • 3 oz. 75 g (100 ml) erythritol
  • 1 1 large egglarge eggs
  • 2 tsp 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp (2.5 g) baking powder
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp salt, optional

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F (180 °C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Use a hand mixer to whip the peanut butter and sweetener until smooth.
  3. Mix in the remaining ingredients until a soft dough is formed.
  4. Roll the dough into 1-inch (2.5 cm) diameter balls and place on a baking sheet about 2-inches (about 4-5 cm) apart. Use your palm to press the balls into a ¼ inch (½ cm) thick round cookie. You can also drag a fork across the top to make a crisscross pattern.

    Under Ingredients, it says:
    "225 g salted peanuts"
    But under Instructions, it says:
    "Use a hand mixer to whip the peanut butter..."
    So shouldn't it say Peanut butter under Ingredients too, instead of salted peanuts?

    That's my question too.

    With apologies, this recipe has been corrected. The ingredient list should have specified peanut butter, not just peanuts.

    How many carbs and calories in each cookie?

    The recipe, as written, makes 24 servings. If you make 24 cookies, then 1 cookie is a serving and has 2g net carbs and 58 calories. All our recipes have the full nutrition information per serving listed in the Nutrition+ tab under the list of ingredients.

    I appreciate the effort to include metric measurements. But DO IT! Salt and vanilla are still listed in tsp. They should be ml. and peanut butter in ounces for US measurements? Do people weigh out the peanut butter? I think not .. you likely mean 1 cup, right? And did you know that US measurements are different from Imperial measurements? A US gallon (and quarts, pints and so on) is smaller than an imperial gallon.(we call it Canadian gallon but other countries as well). Metric measurements are the same everywhere. It gets confusing for sure. Consistency within each system is key.

    Thank you for your feedback. I shared it with our recipe team.

    3 oz. of sweetener? tbs? tsp? 1/4 cup? Sorry, I should not be annoyed. I'll search to determine how much is 3 oz of sweetener. I suppose I should become used to measuring by weight as well.

    How does the mixture go into a dough without a flour substitute?

    Cynthia - At top of ingredients list there is a button to switch between measurement systems. Plus you can easily use an online converter too if you need. No big deal.

    I have a small kitchen scale that I use frequently. It will change measuring systems at the push of a button & zero out to calculate only ingredients, not the container. It is one of my indispensable kitchen tools. Not expensive either! 😊

    The peanut butter and baking powder hold everything together.

    Would I be able to swap out the erythritol with stevia?

    The peanut butter and sweetener form the dough.

    You will need a granulated sweetener to give this cookie bulk.

    I apologize for revisiting the measurement question, however, I am still a bit confused. When you use ounces for the peanut butter, are you referring to weight or 1 cup? My question also applies to the sweeter - weight or a portion of a measuring cup? Thank you.

    Weighing ingredients is a more accurate way to measure especially when baking.

    Regular Jif peanut butter or all natural?

    All-natural, no sugar added peanut butter. Peanuts and salt as the only ingredients.
