Mini peanut butter cookies

January 21, 2019

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 😉 These tasty mini treats are just 1 smart point each.

Mini peanut butter cookies
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 36
1SP on blue, green & purple/1PP per cookie
  • 2 Tbsp butter softened *I used Gay Leah light butter 7SP for 2Tbsp
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup flour
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, I also lightly spray it.
  2. 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.
  3. Stir in flour and baking powder till well mixed.
  4. 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.
  5. Place rolled balls of dough on cookie sheet and press down with a fork.
  6. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, let cool 5 minutes.
  7. Store in a sealed container, you can freeze these cookies if you wish.
  8. Makes 36 mini cookies

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

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

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle November 21, 2019 at 10:48 am

      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

    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!

      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

    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!

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

    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!!

      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 🙂

    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!

      Hi Sara, so glad you enjoyed them and that is awesome they were shared on connect 🙂 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?

      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
