Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
Gluten Free Living – 2018
Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies are so mouthwatering. These jewels are so delectable they practically dissolve in your mouth. No kidding. This is not your typical Peanut Butter Cookie recipe. This cookie has only three ingredients: peanut butter, sugar and an egg. That’s it. It’s easy, easy, E-A-S-Y! Plus, for those who want to indulge but have gluten intolerance, this is the perfect cookie for you.
Back in early January, my husband and I traveled up to Spokane, Washington, for a wedding. The groom grew up in our church and was a semester away from graduating from the Moody Bible Institute campus there. He met a beautiful Idaho girl and fell in love. I spoke to the bride’s mother after the wedding and complimented her on the gluten free cupcakes she had made. Apparently, there are several in their family with gluten intolerance. Anyway, Celeste’s mom told me about her easy Peanut Butter Cookies with only three ingredients.
Donald and Celeste moved back to Texas after graduation and I asked Celeste about her mom’s recipe. I thought it would be perfect to make for our Kid’s Fest in July. Our church hosts a large festival in a park in DeSoto, Texas, each year. I ended up making about six or eight batches of this recipe. Along with my Chocolate Chip Cookies and Peachy Vanilla Chip Cookies, these cookies were snatched up immediately. I had several families come back for seconds and thirds because they enjoyed the cookies so much.
If you want the easiest recipe in the world for Peanut Butter Cookies, you’ve got to try out these amazing Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies. They’re terrific for snacks, tailgating parties, potlucks and for kid’s parties. If you’re short on time, it doesn’t get any easier than this. These cookies are so scrumptious, but because they have no flour they are a little on the fragile side. You’ll need to handle them with care. Even so, I think they’re some of the best Peanut Butter Cookies I’ve ever eaten. I think you will too.

I ate so many of these Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies. They were sooooo good. 🙂
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Place creamy peanut butter, sugar and an egg in a mixing bowl.
Stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
Place extra sugar in a small bowl. Roll cookie dough into balls. Then roll each ball into the sugar in the bowl. Be sure to coat cookie dough well.
Spray large cookie sheets with cooking spray. Place cookie dough balls onto prepared cookie sheets.
Press each ball of dough gently in criss-cross fashion with a fork. Don’t be heavy-handed in this step.
Bake at 350 for 12-16 minutes. Rotate pans half way during cooking time. (My pans took about 15-16 minutes to bake).
Serve Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies at your favorite party or potluck.
