Could these be any more adorable…!
As far as easy recipes go, well… this IS the easiest! While I can’t take the credit because the recipe is right off the back of the jar of peanut butter, it does make me wonder…. just how long it’s been there before I even noticed it…?
The Simple Things.
Yes, they’re often the best things for a reason. Uncomplicated, often natural with recipes, these well and truly taste of peanut butter.
Peanut lovers in your life will love you for whipping up a batch of these crispy, peanut-ty gems.
If you do add the chopped peanuts to the top, it’ll technically be 4 ingredients, but who’s counting… It’s simply adding more fabu-liciousness!
You don’t really need a stand mixer for this dough! It is only 3 ingredients after all… I just wanted to be hands free while mixing!
You also don’t have to weigh out the cookie portions, I do it cause I find it easier. Plus, I had to buy a scale some time ago for gluten free baking, so I already have it. FYI for the 2-bite cookies I used 10 grams of dough, probably about 1 1/2 teaspoons. Go ahead and make them whatever size you like!
3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies (GF)
Delicious and full of peanut taste, this remarkably simple recipe is a stunner!
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 - 2 tablespoons chopped peanuts
Heat oven at 325°F.
Combine peanut butter, egg and sugar together, until combined.
Portion out as 10 grams (for 2-bite cookies) more for larger, and place on parchment paper lined baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between.
Make a criss-cross pattern with a fork dipped in sugar (if adding chopped peanuts, sprinkle them on first.)
Bake 13 - 15 minutes, until golden but do not over bake.
Let cool completely before eating.
These freeze very well; in fact once cooled I store the cookies there, and take them out as required.
