Easy and DELICIOUS is how I would describe these flourless peanut butter cookies, with only 3 ingredients! I admit, I was a skeptic… until I tried them!
These peanut butter cookies were wonderful… (how did I not know this all these years????) I saw this recipe pop up on my Pinterest feed, and thought there was no way these could be truly tasty, but I was completely WRONG.
The recipe makes between 15 and 18 flourless peanut butter cookies, and took only 20 minutes from start to finish! Not bad for a kitchen experiment!
I’ve posted some photos of the whole process, but trust me… it all boils down to this: mix the ingredients, place by spoonfuls onto baking sheet, flatten with sugar-dipped fork, bake, and EAT!
How To Make These Yummy Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
Here you go… some quick pics of the “process”… so easy! Here are the three ingredients for flourless peanut butter cookies ready to mix: peanut butter, egg, and sugar. THAT’S IT!
The dough for the peanut butter cookies is mixed up using a spoon… then is ready to drop by spoonfuls onto baking sheet.
The cookie dough balls are rounded off, then scored criss-cross with a sugar-dipped fork, and then are ready to put into the preheated oven…
When the peanut butter cookies are golden brown and finished baking, they are transferred to a wire rack to cool, then they are ready to eat!
See? Even the bottoms of the peanut butter cookies look good.
That’s it! Trust me… these peanut butter cookies are ridiculously EASY and seriously GOOD. Hope you’ll give these simple, yummy cookies a try… think you’ll be as surprised as I was at how good they are!

Original Recipe source: http://www.aroundmyfamilytable.com/2010/10/flourless-peanut-butter-cookies/
- 1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy- I used crunchy)
- 1 cup granulated sugar (reserve 1 teaspoon)
- 1 egg
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray.
- Mix the peanut butter, sugar and egg together in a large bowl. Combine thoroughly.
Drop the dough by rounded teaspoons onto prepared baking sheet. Slightly round out the dough with your fingers, once on baking sheet.
Lightly moisten a fork with water. Dip it into a tiny bit of sugar, and press the tines of the fork crosswise (two different directions) into top of each dough ball to flatten. Repeat for each cookie.
Bake cookies at 350 degrees for about 14 minutes. Do not let cookies overbake or get too brown. When done, transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
