4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Print Friendly

I was looking for a new kind of peanut butter cookie and I ran across this one. I really didn’t think that only using 4 ingredients would work! (Especially with no flour!)

They were so easy and they tasted really good! I was very impressed and my kids were in heaven!


4 Ingredients Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup peanut butter, smooth or crunchy (I used Creamy JIF)
1 cup sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Using a hand or stand mixer, mix the peanut butter, sugar, egg and vanilla on low speed until well combined. (Do not over mix!)

Scoop about 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough about 2 inches apart onto the baking sheet.

Flatten the dough balls with a fork, making a cross pattern on the cookies.
Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes until they are golden around the edges. Allow the cookies to rest on the counter for 2 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: About 10 minutes

    I have made these before. It’s the recipe that used to be printed on the labels of Skippy peanut butter. They are good, my go-to recipe if I ever need cookies in a pinch and don’t have time to make my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe which has more ingredients and is a bit more involved. =)

    I’ve been making these cookies for years and they are DELICIOUS!!! I use Splenda instead of sugar to lower the carbs. My Mom makes them this way and she had the hardest time believing that you could make cookies like this without flour.

    I love this recipe! I’ve made them many times. I’ve also done Peanut Butter AND Jelly cookies by adding a teaspoon of jelly to the little crosspattern hole. Super yummy that way too =)

    I Tried This Recipe Out This Morning And Followed The Instructions Except For I Substituted Sugar For Splenda. The Only Problem I Seem To Have Is For Some Reason The Cookies Are Really Fragile, And When You Bite Into It, Its Like Dust Or Powder. I Cant Figure Out What I Did Wrong, Am I Supposed To Beat The Egg BEFORE Mixing Everything Together? Thats The Only Thing I Can Think Of. Any Help Or Thoughts Would Be Very Appreciated.
    I Did The Splenda Because My Grandfather Is Highly Diabetic, But Has A Weakness To Sweets, And Peanut Butter.
