I was super excited when I saw Joy The Baker’s recent post on flourless peanut butter cookies because these cookies are made without flour (as the name would suggest!) and also without butter (in my previous post I noted that I’m out of butter!). The cookies require only four ingredients, and they bake up soft and chewy.
I’m so impressed with these cookies and am thankful to Joy for posting the recipe. If you’re short on staple baking ingredients (such as flour, butter or vanilla, etc.) and in need of a super quick sweet treat, I highly recommend these little gems.
Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
Adapted from Joy The Baker & The Gourmet Cookbook
1 cup all-natural chunky or smooth peanut butter
1 cup sugar (1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup granulated sugar)
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet with butter and set aside. In a mixer combine peanut butter and sugars until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add egg and baking soda and mix for another 2 minutes. Roll into walnut sized balls and create a cris-cross pattern with a fork. If you’d like, add a few chocolate pieces to the top of the cookies. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a baking sheet for two minutes, then transfer to… your mouth.
