Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies are an easy 3-ingredient recipe. Rich peanut butter flavor and naturally gluten-free!
This month has been crazy. I honestly cannot remember a time when I had so little time. Moving, traveling, moving…moving was definitely the big one. It was my second move in a year which, for someone who really dislikes moving – not just the packing and unpacking but the displacement of it all – wasn’t a welcome change. But such is life and circumstances made it a necessity. The great news? I absolutely LOVE my new place – it’s so fantastically awesome! Funny how life works sometimes, isn’t it?
So I’m squeezing in this post just in the nick of time. It’s just a little ol’ flourless peanut butter cookie recipe – three ingredients make it easier than driving to the store to buy the premade stuff – but it’s an important one. This one will help to raise money for kids with cancer.
OXO sent me a Drop Cookie Baking Kit to make any cookie I chose and since flourless peanut butter cookies are one of my favorites, this was a no-brainer (plus they’ll donate $100 to the cause just for posting this recipe)! It’s pretty much the exact recipe for my 3-ingredient Nutella cookies except that these Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies use…wait for it…peanut butter! I’ll bet you never guessed that one ;-)
Although I love your run-of-the-mill peanut butter cookies that do contain flour, these flourless peanut butter cookies have a soft, moist texture that you just couldn’t get if you added flour. They only make about a dozen cookies per batch so double or triple the recipe if you need to (they freeze really well, too). Personally, I’ll eat the entire batch no matter how many are there so I’ll stick to a dozen per batch. They’re just too good to pass up while still warm!

- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Drop cookies onto baking sheet then gently flatten with a fork. Bake for 6-10 minutes (start checking at 6 minutes in case your oven runs hot as it's important not to over bake). Cookies are done when lightly browned on the bottom.
- Remove immediately from baking sheet and allow cookies to cool on a wire rack.
