    3-ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

    Gluten Free, Grain Free & Dairy Free 3-ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies Grain & Dairy-free 3-ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

    Um yes, this recipe has a total of 3 ingredients in it. It is that easy to make. Almost too easy to the point where it’s dangerous since I have been wanting to make these everyday since I first took my first bite of one.

    The other amazing part of these cookies is that they are gluten free, grain free & dairy free. You can also make them paleo by subbing creamy almond butter for peanut butter if you’d like.

    So let’s chat about how there are 3 ingredients into one peanut buttery, fudgey, delicious cookie. I am all about the easy, simple and quick recipes aka the lazy girl’s guide to eating and baking. While I love spending time in my kitchen experimenting and making different things, I understand the the average person doesn’t really get a thrill out of it like I do. Good-for-you and delicious food should be easy to prepare. It shouldn’t come with more than 10 ingredients and it shouldn’t take you hours to make. That’s what going out to dinner is for. Save the gourmet fancy Soufflés for your next date night.

    3-ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies is what you can make for a quick treat after a long ass day at work or when you are in a bind and need to bring a dessert to a friend’s house. All you will need is peanut butter, an egg & coconut sugar. I used Better Body Foods coconut sugar (aka my latest obsession!).

    In case you aren’t familiar with Better Body Foods, they sell a variety of organic products that you can use basically every single day. Everything from coconut flour to agave to chia seeds and more! Not to mention, the company sells nothing but quality organic products that are extremely versatile. I have stocked my pantry with a handful of their items and find myself using them almost everyday.

    So peanut butter, an egg and coconut sugar, that’s all you need! Of course you can add some chocolate chips or vanilla extract or whatever else you’d like but these cookies are amazing just with these 3 ingredients. If you have some of my 3-ingredient Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter, you can absolutely use that as your peanut butter too.

    Is there anything I can sub the coconut sugar for? Stevia?

      Hi Samantha! I haven’t tried that but I’m not the biggest stevia fan with baking (I love it my beverages though!). I would recommend cane sugar before stevia for this! If you have the opportunity to purchase coconut sugar, I recommend it. It’s an great option! xx

    These are DELICIOUS. I added a few chocolate chips to give me the coveted PB and Choc flavor and it’s taking all my willpower not to eat the batch. I did find that the batter was way too sticky at first so I added a little more sugar to make it easier to handle. Maybe I didn’t measure the sugar correctly the first time but I thought I had equal sugar to PB. Either way, so good.

    I have seen these all over the web and have been making three-ingredient peanut butter cookies for years. They are so good and so simple to make. I almost always have the ingredients on hand, so when cravings call I am good to go.

      Hi Ogi – they shouldn’t be runny at all. It should form a dough then bake in the oven per instructions above

      I’m not sure! It probably does, I actually don’t even have white sugar in my home so I haven’t tested it before. Let me know if it does 🙂 xx
