I’ve been making these simple Peanut Butter cookies for years, because: 1) They only require four ingredients 2) They taste like the “regular” Peanut Butter Cookie recipe 3) They’re all ingredients I almost ALWAYS have on hand. That means I know I can always whip up a batch if I need a fast, easy treat.
I recently made these into bite-sized treats so I could have a taste of dessert with only 33 calories, but you could make them any size you’d like! You could also add mini chocolate chips or peanuts for some variety.
Easiest EverPeanut Butter Cookies
1 Cup Peanut butter, smooth or crunchy 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar 1 egg 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until creamed together. For small cookies, place one teaspoon batter onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. If you want the identifiable crisscross pattern, dip a fork in granulated sugar and press lightly in each direction. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet 10 minutes, then place on cooling rack to cool completely. Yield: 60 mini cookies
I popped them into a Ziplock bag and put them in the freezer. When I’m ready for a treat, I put one in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Add a glass of milk to these treats and you have a delicious snack or dessert!
Is this old recipe in your files? If not, I hope you’ll give them a try! They’re as delicious as they are simple!
A super fast post today with a delicious flourless muffin you must make!! A friend recently shared this recipe with me and I made them IMMEDIATELY. We loved them and my very finicky grandson ate THREE!
You don’t have to be on a gluten-free diet to enjoy these! They have protein in the peanut butter, banana, honey and leavening. That’s it!
Super moist and yummy!
The recipe came from Averie Cooks. Check out the simple ingredients and instructions. She’s got lots of great looking recipes!
Now go bake some!
Do your friends share great recipes with you? What have you tried recently?
Meals can get boring if you don’t change things up a bit. I’ve found it’s all about The Sides! If you make your famous meatloaf or pork loin and just add a couple of different sides to along with it, it turns it into a brand new meal!
Whether you have to eat Gluten-free, or you just love a good peanut butter-chocolate chip bar, this recipe is going to make your stomach smile! There’s no butter in these bars, but the peanut butter makes up for all the creaminess the butter would give! These take literally minutes to pull together, then only require 22 minutes in the oven, which means you are 30 minutes away from a delicious treat! These cut beautifully, and were just a perfect sweet any time of the day! This recipe came from WellPlated.com – a blog that is filled with lots of healthy and delicious recipes! I found her via Pinterest – where else?!
Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars
1 cup creamy or crunch peanut butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup old fashioned rolled oats – I used Quick oats and they worked fine!
Place rack in the center of your oven and preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8-inch baking dish with parchment paper and lightly coat with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the peanut butter, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt on medium speed until well combined.
Add the egg and vanilla, then mix on medium low, just until incorporated. By hand, stir in the chocolate chips and oats.
Press the dough into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 22 minutes, until golden and the top is set. Let cool completely in the pan. Remove, slice and serve.
We don’t eat Gluten-free, but these will stay in my recipe box because they’re just plain ol’ good!
