Peanut Butter Cookies (RSF)

May 03, 2023

Who doesn’t love a 4-ingredient peanut butter cookie?! I made a slight tweak to the original recipe, by using xylitol, a natural and lower GI sugar substitute. they turned out perfectly!

Makes 15 cookies


  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup xylitol
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C, and line a baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Set aside. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the peanut butter, xylitol, egg, and vanilla until completely combined and a big ball of dough is formed. 
  3. Roll 1 tbsp of dough into a ball, and place on the prepared baking tray. Lightly flatten each cookie with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern.
  4. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned. The cookies will be super soft, but they'll firm up as they cool. 
  5. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
