Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe came about when I was CRAVING cookies, but didn’t have any flour in the house. I had heard of peanut butter cookies being one of the easiest cookies to create a flourless version of…so I got to baking and came up with the perfect recipe! And with only 5 ingredients, this is a super quick and easy recipe to get your sweet fix.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups peanut butter (creamy)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 eggs

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. In a large bowl, first mix together the peanut butter and sugars until combined.
  3. Next add the baking soda and eggs and beat until smooth.
  4. Form dough into round tablespoonful balls. Place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart from each other (I fit about a dozen cookies on the sheet at a time). Using a fork, press a criss-cross pattern into each dough ball, flattening into a cookie shape.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes or until the cookies become slightly golden brown. When you remove them from the oven, allow them to cool for about 5-7 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack to ensure they do not fall apart (the peanut butter base makes them very fragile while warm).
  6. Enjoy! ***This recipe made me about 3 dozen cookies***
