    Never heard more preposterous info for cookies, so tried them! Equal to any others I've had, even my Mother's!

    1 C Peanut Butter (I used 1/2 P-Nut Butter, 1/2 Cashew Butter)

    1 Egg, beaten lightly

    1 C Sugar (used 1/2 sugar, 1/2 Erythritol)

    Baked 350F 12 minutes

    @Sheldon Scott

    They are so delicious! But I am disallowed peanut butter due to kidney deficiency, and so must go easy. Constraints are never fun. Frank

    Seems more like a candy recipe than cookies. I guess the egg is the secret.

    Agree. I was wondering where the flour is. :D

    @Beth Gallagher

    No flour because it's keto, if no sugar. My wife consumes almost no sugar, knowingly.

    @Gloria Mitchell

    I find them a bit too sweet. Others might not. Reducing sugar content without replacing it with something non-sweet reduces the amount of dough as well as the workability of it. Flour would make them denser. Perhaps go 13-1/2 C sugar and 1/3 C flour, with 1/2 teaspoon baking powder to lighten them up. I love to experiment!

    I have been using almond flour to replace regular flour, or at least part of the regular flour, and I think that it might work for your cookie recipe also, @Frank Sanoica . It would add the extra substance that you get from flour, but not the carbs that white , bleached flour has, plus the almond flour/meal, adds extra protein instead of more carbs.
    Coconut flour is also a possibility, it is a lighter flour than the almond. I often use a combination of both of them in baking.
