I'll try this later; if it doesn't have the cookie texture, ya might try a tbsp or 2 of baking powder

I made this and added a tsp of vanilla extract and 1 tbs of baking powder and they were pretty much like cookies---a little crumbly, but yummy! I was a happy girl---thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been having the worst cravings for peanut butter cookies...I was even having nightmares that I was eating them last night.

im not sure if im gonna be making these again because they went too fast, and im not on keto anymore. i really wish i had these when i was on keto though, then i coulda had some cookies along with my food rather than oil to get my fat in.

Holy crap I just made a double batch of these, they totally have the potential for disaster. They're bite size and 70 cals each!! I can eat a lot of bite size foods if i'm not careful. Let's hope they make it 72 hours.

They're very good, a little too good for those weak on willpower.

I just made a batch of these and found them tasty, but filling! I only got 15 out of my batch. I didn't have vanilla on hand (despite a trip to the grocery store) but I did use baking powder, and I also added about a teaspoon of cinnamon. Turned out very well.

Note to those of us who don't catch the obvious, like me:

For a cookie shape, flatten them. Some cookies flatten from balls into discs when they cook, but not these.

I made these the other night and they turned out pretty good... I changed the recipe a bit. I added 1/4 cup of ground almond (almond flour) which adds 13g of healthy fats (1 g of sat), and a few carbs. I also topped the cookies with small pieces of pecan on the top before baking.

I wanted to mention that I don't think the carbs in splenda were accounted for in the original recipe posting. There are 96kcal in a cup of splenda, or 24g of carbs. With the changes I made, each cookie had 2.5g of carbs. Without the almond flour it would work out to 2g per cookie.

carbs in splenda were counted.... 24g per cup = 12g per half cup. only calls for half a cup in the recipe. total carbs in recipe = 29

rest of the carbs coming from the peanut butter

Didn't have any whole eggs & experimented .. at 5am :-|


1/2 cup ( 4oz weighed) smucker's Natty PB
1/4 cup Egg Whites
1 level tsp Refined Coconut oil shortening ( to make up for lack of yolk )

few dashes cinnamon
1/2 capful Vanilla Extract

< 1/4 cup boxed splenda ( under the line a bit )

2 1/2 Heapin tspn FiberONE cereal crushed

Stirred 2 minutes with fork - smashing / stirring / folding ..

placed whoppin tspn sized balls ( about 1.5 " ) onto non greased pan - formed into squares and pressed into 1/4" or so thickness ..

325 degrees - 10-15 minutes don't know exactly forgot to check clock just watched um ..

besides it being funny all the oil bubbling underneath them while baking ....

NOT BAD AT ALL THOUGH VERY DRY

macros ? dunno 5 cookies total about 12g carbs - 7 fiber so 5g carbs total so 1g per cookie not including PB Carbs

Well you took coconut oil that's why, coconut oil gives you energy with it's MCTs.

I guess I learned my lesson for experimenting with the recipie. I only had 3/4 cup PB left so I added a little bit of chocolate whey for flavor and protein, took out a tiny bit of sugar, added some cinnamon, and a touch of milk. The batter tasted fantastic but the cookies lost the flavor in the baking process. I'm gonna try one cold later though.

I made these and they tasted AMAZING. I added in the tsp of baking powder and tsp of vanilla as recommended. I also warmed up the the peanut butter a bit so it would mix better.

It is A LOT BETTER to make about ~14 cookies instead of the recommended 24. They hold there shape better. Also don't thin out the cookies too much because they tend to crumple. This was my first BB baking related sucess! (failed at cupcakes and protien bars)

just made, only added 1 ts. vanilla. made 14, came out good, baked 20 min.. they were soft but put them in the fridge and they stayed together better.. i think i might use 2 eggs and see if that helps them be a little more moist..

This knock anyone out of ketosis?

i havent been yet.. using
1 cup jif simple peanut butter(lower sodium and lower sugar) 100% natty would be best
1/2 cup splenda
half scoop ON WHEY double chocolate
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 egg
PER COOKIE, batch size 14
cal - 118
fat - 9g
sat - 1.5g
poly -1g
mono-7g
sodium-62mg
carbs - 3.5
D.F. 1.5
protein 3.5

Carbs are a little high..the peanut butter was jif lower salt and sodium but not the complete natural but im getting some today. The 1/2 cup splenda has less than 1g carb per table spoon 1/2 cup= 8 table spoons. I kept them in the fridge and they were solid, little dry but keep a glass of water handy and their FIRE. Great snack if your busy. HOPEFULLY the 100% npb will cut the carbs down alot. If any one has any handy could you post how many carbs are in it.. I will try a full scoop of whey on the next batch. Any suggestions to make them more moist. maybe a table spoon of oil or butter?

Well there are quite a few carbs in the PB, the splenda also has carbs.

Turned out pretty good....Kind of dry, but nice and chewy. Any ideas to help out with the dryness? I was thinking of maybe adding some cream cheese or something.

you could try to add whipping cream (27% stuff) would make it nice and moist. 1 tbsp is 5g fat, 0 else.
add 2 tbsp to your cookies, might make them a little more moist and offset the added protein from Protein Powder.

I'm going to try these tonight.

1cup natural PB
1/2cup splenda
1 egg
1 scoop Power Whey Chocolate (decadent choc)
2tbsp 18% table cream

if I make 24, each makes:
80cal
6g fat
3g carb
4g protein

Can anybody tell me the nutritional data of 1cup of natural PB? Fitday says 1600cal - 128g fat / 48g carb / 64g pro
is that right? in TBSP, that's 100cal - 8g/3g/4g
The stuff I get is in bulk, so there's no nutritional values on it... just the ingredients of 'whole roasted nuts'

03-02-2008, 05:33 PM
omg. delicious, kinda dry...but seriously dangerous. i had 4, today... i had to put them away behind all my food so it's too inconvenient to get to.

i added 3tbsp of water and a little baking powder.

i'll try them again with less sweetener and some protein powder and cream. i have biox protein, it's really sweet and decadent on it's own, so it should go nicely with the cookies.

So will the packeted splenda work for this or is it a different type of splenda. I only have the little packets.

Galt
03-16-2008, 03:55 PM
I added a bit of baking powder and vanilla extract in mine, they came out pretty good. I put them in the freezer over night and they are much less crumbly when old.

'Yo props- i was gonna ask about mixing in ON whey of various flavors to make the macros a bit more oriented towards protein (instead of 75% towards carbs), but you solved that for me! just started cruisin the Keto forums..usually up on supplements and fat loss, but appreciate it man

Tried these; they were good but a little too crumbly. The second time I made them I double the eggs and they came out much more firm and moist. This recipe is definitely a keeper. I'm considering altering the recipe a bit to make a crust for a peanut butter pie...

also tried these, came out great!
1 cup natty pb,1/2 cup splenda,1.5 scoops ON choc whey, 2 eggs,1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tblsp baking powder, 1 tsp heavy cream, 2 tblsp water
made 12 cookies.. finished batter was kinda watery/creamy but they rose in the oven to about .5" each.. (took about 15 min)
really good taste and a somewhat spongy texture on the inside with a cookie texture on the outside.. (feels just like those "soft" sugar cookies you can get) no crumbling at all

i cant remember my exact recipe, as ive tried it three or four times and i add/subtract things each time... but i find these pretty enjoyable:

1 cup natural pb (i usually use a bit more because i bake big batches)
4 or 5 tbsp splenda (guess it depends how sweet you want em)
1 tbsp baking powder
2 eggs
2-3 tbsp olive oil
20-30 grams president's choice whey chocolate protein
2tbsp heavy cream/whipped cream
if its too solid add a bit of water

mix to a batter, the batter should taste amazing and be fairly liquid. spread on a cookie sheet, bake for like 7-8 minutes at 325 and see how they are doing.

i find more eggs and adding olive oil gives them a bit more moisture. the cream helps in that department too. still not perfect, but worth a shot.

i bake the cookies thinner because i find if you make em big they have too much of that spongey texture... they are probably around half an inch tall or so, but thats just my preference. drop some of the liquids if you want more cookie.



edit: forgot to add the heavy cream today, but here are the macros for a batch i made (aproximated):

12 cookies, per cookie:

160 cal
14g fat, 7g pro, 3.5 carb (net after 1g fibre from pb)

i make em big.

They turned out really dry and just crumbled when I tried to eat them. Really dry taste too. I think next time I'll add a T of olive oil to help keep them together.

milk my good man. milk....

I made these too, its on the back of Kraft Peanut Butter. Make sure to only slightly brown the cookies because if you overcook they taste pretty bad. Bake 10mins. My cookies were crispy on the outside and semi-gooey on the inside

OMG...I made these this morning. I cut the recipe down in size, though...used 1/4 cup of peanut butter...only about 1 tbsp. of Splenda, a few drops of vanilla, and about 1/8 of a teaspoon of baking powder. It made 5 cookies about the size of a half dollar. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD! I'm going to play around with the recipe, adding almond meal to see if I get a better bond, and maybe a tiny bit more baking powder...these do crumble VERY easily. But the flavor makes me NOT CARE HOW crumbly they are!!!!! lol THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS RECIPE!

These sounds really great! Will have to try them! I do have a question though. I use stevia, instead of splenda or other artificial sweeteners...will it still work? I cannot find the carb content in Stevia.....does stevia even have any carbs?
Oh nevermind...I found it...1 carb per packet, but it is a lot sweeter than splenda, I think...

Stevia has no carbs as far as I remember, and it's much sweeter than sugar. I used to use it, you'll have to just go taste it for yourself. Less is more I'd use a third or a fourth less Stevia than what the recipe calls for.
