You can use any peanut butter you like, but I recommend no sugar added, creamy peanut butter for best results.
Special Tip: If you don't want the pattern on the tops of the cookies you can skip that. You can also add a Hershey's kiss to the top of all or half to mix it up a bit.

Nutrition and Calories in Recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies

This nutrition is based off using regular peanut butter. If you choose to get no sugar added peanut butter (I highly recommend) it will be lower in calories and sugar. But I figured I should use the most common peanut butter to make this nutrition label. This way it works for everyone.

The serving size is 1 cookie, and the nutrition is based off using the  all-natural zero calorie sugar noted in the recipe card above.
