Indulge in these flourless peanut butter cookies without the guilt! You can make these using just one bowl and only four simple ingredients. Splenda Granulated Sweetener is used instead of sugar to make this a calorie and carb-friendly sweet treat.

TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup Splenda® Granulated Sweetener
  • 1 large egg (beaten)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, mix peanut butter, Splenda sweetener, egg, and vanilla extract together. Next, chill mixture in the fridge for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Portion chilled mixture into balls (about 1 tablespoon) and place on an ungreased sheet pan. Press dough lightly with the tines of a fork to create a crosshatch pattern and flatten each cookie slightly.
  3. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on sheet pan at least 5 minutes.  Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
