Flourless peanut butter cookies

I love cookies; I might be about 10 pounds lighter if I did not. Because of this fancy, I am always looking for cookie recipes that are easy and delicious. I have seen this particular recipe for flourless peanut butter cookies in several places and under several names, but I cannot say for sure whose recipe it is. This recipe is wonderful because it is easy, delicious, and safe to feed to the gluten-free families I know. This is one cookie you will never need the recipe for. With just three ingredients, you will look like a baker extraordinaire when you whip these cookies up from scratch.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies


  • 1 cup peanut butter (do not use natural if it is runny)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg


  1. Combine all three ingredients and mix together until smooth.
  2. Use a cookie scoop to scoop the dough into balls. Rolls balls in some sugar and place onto cookie sheet two inches apart.
  3. Press cookie with fork twice to make the famous peanut butter cookie hatch mark.
  4. Bake 10-12 minutes at 350°.
  5. Let cool on cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes and then remove to a cooling rack.

  2. I've done these before – they are yummy! I like to use sucanat, and actually I used natural peanut butter that is runny when warm… but they turned out fine! Now I'm going to have to make these again…

  3. Thanks for the input Kelsey. I made them once with runny pb and the cookies were smooshy. Maybe it depends on the degree of "runnyness".
    The sucanat suggestions sounds great. 🙂

    I have made these cookies a few times since you have given me the recipe, and my family absolutely loves them!! I love that there are less carbs in the cookies, to bad there are a lot of calories in peanut butter. I am willing to eat those calories because I love peanut butter so much. Thanks again for sharing an amazing recipe!
