WHAT INGREDIENTS DID I USE TO CREATE THESE ONE POINT PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES?

The two key ingredients to making these cookies low in points are using A ZERO SMARTPOINTS WHITE AND BROWN SUGAR SUBSTITUTE–

I have always been my go-to Jif Whips to eat low point peanut butter until I recently discovered it has now been discontinued as of June 2020. I’ve been super devastated about that I needed to go on a hunt for the next best low point peanut butter. I recently discovered PETER PAN WHIPPED 1/3 LESS SUGAR PEANUT BUTTER, and I’m telling you it’s just as AMAZING as Jif whips and is similar in points to Jif Whips. You can find it HERE on Amazon or at your local grocery store.

Brown sugar substitute: I recommend the sugar substitute you use is granulated otherwise the texture will be gritty.

The sugar substitute that I love and I always use is LAKANTO MONKFUIT SWEETENER. It’s zero calories and zero SmartPoints.

I use the Classic for the white granulated and Golden for the brown sugar substitute.

You can find the Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener HERE.

In addition to the reduced-fat peanut butter and peanut butter powder, I also use peanut butter extract to enhance the peanut butter flavor in these cookies without adding more points. Keep in mind these cookies won’t have as much peanut butter flavor as they would be if you use PEANUT BUTTER EXTRACT.

You can find peanut butter extract online on Amazon HERE.

EGG VS. EGG WHITES

You can use either 2 egg whites or one large whole egg. They taste the exact same regardless of the one you use. Keep in mind- eggs are zero points on the WW Blue and WW Purple plan so regardless if use 1 large egg or 2 egg whites to make these cookies they would be 1 Smart Point. However, if you are following the WW green plan I recommend using 2 egg whites in place of the large egg to keep these cookies 1 SmartPoint. Using a whole egg, your point value will increase to 2 SmartPoints per cookie.

HOW DO I MAKE THESE ONE POINT PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES?

To make these peanut butter cookies you will:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Mix sugar substitutes together with Jif peanut butter in a large mixing bowl.

Mix until thoroughly combined.

Whisk in the egg, water and PEANUT BUTTER EXTRACT until smooth.

Add KODIAK CAKES along with the peanut butter powder and

stir until fully combined and a smooth dough is formed.

Drop the dough by 1 rounded tablespoon onto cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.

Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern.

The dough will make 16-18 cookies.

Cook for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly golden.

Notes:

If you are following the WW purple or blue plan you can substitute the 2 egg whites for one large egg for the same point value.
You can substitute the Kodiak Cakes for self-rising flour (the point value per cookie would be 2 points with that substitute.)
These cookies can be stored in an air tight container on the counter for 2 days or in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
In order to calculate the smart points on a recipe you have to enter the ingredients in manually (by ingredient) not by the nutritional information in the WW recipe builder-since this recipe contains zero-point items the app doesn’t realize there is zero point items in the recipe and will calculate it based only off the nutritional info which is not accurate.
You may substitute the Kodiak Cakes for the Kodiak Cakes Peanut Butter Mix if you desire. The overall point of value would change to 2 Smartpoints per cookie.
