4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

I’m a huge fan of peanut butter. Peanut butter cookies, pie, ice cream, candy, etc… Even straight out of the jar. When I found this recipe I have to admit that I was skeptical. Only 4 ingredients (5 with chocolate chips)? And no flour? No way!! Ohhhhhhh YES!! These easy treats are my new favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. And my gluten-free-eating hubby can even enjoy them.


Makes about 20 cookies

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar (+ extra sugar for sprinkling)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
**can add 1 c. choc. chips if desired, I couldn’t resist


1. Mix all the ingredients together in a medium bowl.

2. Roll dough into 1″ balls and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

3. Use the tines of a fork to press the cookie flat and create the criss-cross pattern. Sprinkle with extra sugar.

4. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, until the edges become golden brown.
