peanut butter cookies

Quickest PB Cookies

4 ingredients + 15 minutes — it really can’t get much simpler than that! Thanks to Valerie of RED VINES FOR BREAKFAST for sharing this ridiculously easy and delicious recipe for Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies.

All Natural Ingredients:

  • 1 cup peanut butter – I would recommend an all natural variety of course
  • 1 cup white sugar  – I used 2/3 cup Florida Crystals Organic Granulated +1/3 cup Trader Joe’s brown sugar (because that’s what I had around)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Also, I had a dark chocolate bar around so I decided to add a little piece to each since we all know pb + dark chocolate = perfect combo!

How to:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C)
  2. Combine all ingredients and drop by teaspoonfuls on cookie sheet
  3. Bake for 8 minutes
  4. Enjoy!

Saturday a friend asked us over for an impromptu, low key night of “watching football” (read: male significant others watch football while ladies chat it up and drink delicious Malbec). Sooo I literally decided at 7:40pm to make these cookies and we were out the door by 8:10 pm (that included letting the oven preheat and changing my outfit). So awesome. I was thrilled to bring over homemade treats that were THAT easy and ended up being such a hit. Now my friend is as excited about this recipe as I am. Thanks again, Valerie! :)
