I was craving peanut butter cookies so I whipped up these mini PB cookies and they are delicious.. I like “mini” cookies and muffins, I think it’s a subconscious thing that when I allow myself 3 or 4 mini cookies I feel satisfied, whereas if I go for a larger cookie that might be 3 or 4 points for 1 and I tell myself I’m only allowed 1 I feel robbed haha.. so the mini works for me πŸ˜‰ These tasty mini treats are just 1 personal point/smart point each.

Total Time 15 mins
Course Baking
Servings 36


  • 2 Tbsp butter softened *I used Gay Leah light butter 7SP for 2Tbsp
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup flour


  • Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, I also lightly spray it.
  • In a bowl using an electric mixer cream together your butter and sugar, add in peanut butter, egg and vanilla and beat for 2 minutes.
  • Stir in flour and baking powder till well mixed.
  • Using your hands roll dough into small balls, each one approximately 1 tsp of dough, these are mini cookies, if you don't get 36 or close to then you are making them too big.
  • Place rolled balls of dough on cookie sheet and press down with a fork.
  • Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, let cool 5 minutes.
  • Store in a sealed container, you can freeze these cookies if you wish.
  • Makes 36 mini cookies

  1. These look so good!!! Do you think I could use natural peanut butter?

        • Drizzle Reply

          I would think so, to be honest I never bake with AF and I know it can be tricky to nake with, so all I can suggest is give it a try

    • Drizzle Reply

      that really depends on where you live and what brands you have any is fine.. I am in Canada and only buy Kraft PB

    Hi – I was wondering if you had every used PB2 with this recipe and if so… how did it go?


    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Brooke, this is a brand new recipe so I only have made them as recipe states, all I can say is give it a go..

    • Drizzle Reply

      It is brand new so I only have made them as recipe states, try PB2, I just can’t give you an honest answer as to how it will work sorry

  3. What a great idea. My husband always calls normal size cookies , “snack size ” . I can’t wait to see what he calls these ! We can’t wait to try .

    • Drizzle Reply

      Haha… he will think these are tiny tiny πŸ˜‰ I feel a few of these is enough and I feel satisfied having more than one darn cookie haha

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Kathy, as mentioned in the recipe they are 1 smart point each πŸ™‚

  4. These were yummy! I measured them with a teaspoon and ended up making 57 cookies. do you think I did something wrong?!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Not really other than making them smaller, and you probably got 2 for 1 point maybe? Sweet!! πŸ™‚

  5. I’m drooling. Can’t wait to make these this weekend. Your website honestly makes my ww journey so easy and all of your recipes are absolutely delicious!!!!!! I don’t know what I’d do without your recipes!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Thanks so much Kayla, so glad you are enjoying the recipes πŸ™‚

  6. Brenda Camposano Reply

    Hey, do you use all purpose flour for these or can you use self rising flour?

  7. Making these tomorrow. Thank you! I have never been disappointed with any of your recipes. Delicious!

  8. Do you think that I could use a lite margarine instead of butter? It’s what i have.

  9. Would a brown sugar sweetener like Swerve work.? Asking for a diabetic.

  10. These are insanely delicious!!! I don’t know what we would eat without your wonderful recipes!!! Thank you!!!!!

    What is Gay Leah light butter ? Is it lower in fat and or calories ?

    • Drizzle Reply

      It is a butter spread that is a light version, so lower calories and fat, maybe google it and you can see what it looks like, I buy it here in Canada but not sure if it is available everywhere

      • Sandy Miller Reply

        Thank you , I just did, I’m in the U.S. , I will look and see if I can find it. I love your blog, I’m going to try some of your wonderful receipes this weekend !! Thanks for replying !!!

        • Drizzle Reply

          Thank you Sandy πŸ™‚ I am so glad to hear you are enjoying the recipes

  12. I’m wondering about subbing Greek yogurt for butter? (As it’s not a massive amount, I’m optimistic!)
    I’ll give it a try and let you know!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Anita, yeah not sure on that one.. in some recipes it can work but I am not sure the cookies will come out the same, but yes please let me know

  13. Hi! Does serves 36 mean 1 serving is one cookie? Basically trying to figure it, should the dough be divvied into 36 and then each cookie is 35 calories? Thanks!

    • Drizzle Reply

      HI, yes 36 cookies 1 cookie is 1 serving (just for nutritional info sake)

  14. I made these and they came out completely bland with no peanut butter flavor what so ever, I’m not sure if I did something wrong? I followed the recipe exactly as stated. Never had any problems before with any other recipes I love your website!!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Kristi, they are not overly strong in PB with the amount used, maybe it just simply came down to not being what you hoped for, while I always hope to please everyone I know I can’t, I am sure you did nothing wrong πŸ™‚

  15. I was wondering where you find your light butter?
    I live in Ontario.
    Thank you

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Teresa, Gay Leah sell a light butter spread and I can find it at most grocery stores

  16. I made your sour cream donuts today and they were awesome. I saw someone post these on Connect and they look great. Do you know if they would work using WowButter? It’s soy butter for those allergic to peanuts. Thanks so much!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Sara, so glad you enjoyed them and that is awesome they were shared on connect πŸ™‚ I have never used the wowbutter but I can’t see why it wouldn’t work just as well

    My mom made these today and they were very dry and crumbly. She couldn’t mash them with a fork because they would fall apart. I double checked all ingredients and she didn’t leave anything out, but even after baking they didn’t hold together. Did we miss something?

    • Drizzle Reply

      I’m so sorry to hear this, It is hard for me to know if you missed something without being there, as you can see mine in the picture were not dry, was the butter you used soft? Maybe try a little less flour (just a pinch) see if that helps

    • Mine too. They were terrible and tasted like flour not sure what happened but they looked nothing like the recipes.

      • Drizzle Reply

        So sorry to hear that Jen πŸ™ it is hard for me to know what went wrong without being there.. did you use PB2 by any chance?
