3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today is my first post of the year for the Secret Recipe Club and boy do I have a great recipe today!  It’s easy, fast, gluten free, so darn delicious and healthy!!

Peanut Butter Cookies

These are Heather’s Recipe from It’s Yummy to My Tummy’s Blog.  Heather’s blog is new to me and I had so much fun searching through all of her recipes.  I just couldn’t decide what one to make, but you know me and peanut butter, my heart and stomach was telling me to make them and make them now!  I am sure glad I did!  These cookies have the most rich peanut butter taste than any peanut butter cookie I have ever had.  They are pure peanut butter heaven!!

Peanut Butter Cookies

They are so easy to make to!!  Only 3 ingredients  peanut butter, egg and sugar!  Love it!  You can whip these bad boys together in a matter of minutes, no mixer needed, just a strong hand to mix with a spoon!  Actually I got my hands dirty and used them to bring this cookie together!  When I made these cookies to add a little texture, I also through in some chopped cashews for a little bit of a crunch!  Perfect!  I told my Husband he could have a few, key word a few, to take to work.  He took the whole batch!!  I came home from work, wanting to have one of these cookies and when I went to grab one or two, they were gone!  I called him ASAP and asked where are the cookies and he said I took them!  He took all of them!!!  ALL OF THEM!!!  Now you must know I never call my Husband at work, but it was a peanut butter emergency and he seemed shocked that I called.  I said do you have any left?  He said yah, I said good, bring them home and you know what he did?  He ate them!!  He didn’t bring any home for me at all!!  I was so sad!  Lucky I always keep spare PB around so I can make more!!  That darn Husband of mine!  Remember he doesn’t like peanut butter!  I think he just says that to mess with me!!!

    3. Hi Jennifer,

    4. They look like the perfect bite and uses ingredients I always have around! Great cooking with you in the SRC!

    5. I never understood why people start adding flour and so many other ingredients to peanut butter cookies. This 3 ingredient recipe is the only way I have ever, and will ever make peanut butter cookies. It’s the only way to get the true peanut butter taste (so yummy).

    6. I hate it when I expect to find some left over of anything. Go to get it and it has disappeared. Since the nuts are optional I guess you can still call this a three ingredient recipe, cause I counted 4 tee-hee hee! They do look great.

    7. Oh my gosh, those look like peanut butter heaven. I can’t blame your husband for eating them all!! Great choice 🙂

    8. you had me at 3 ingredients! that is awesome!!!

    9. Thanks for the nice review and I’m so glad you liked my 3 ingredient cookies ! They are a pretty quick favorite treat of mine and my husbands and never last long around our house!

    10. Yum! I bet the cashews are great

    11. Hahaha your story is so funny. “that husband of mine!”
      I guess the cookies must have been reallyyyy good 😉

    12. LOL story of my life!! I never learn to make double the batch either…. I would eat all of these myself if I could, too! 🙂

    13. I love three ingredients anything. Easy to do and this looks delicious.

    14. LOL, I love that your husband snuck ALL of these, that totally warranted a phone call! They look so good, I love how simple they are!

    15. have used this recipe for years now…for an added treat…when finished baking (don’t “tine” them) press an unwrapped kiss into the center and let completely cool….very tasty…

    16. Only 3 ingredients, what can I write – perfect 🙂

    17. We made these just the other day. When I first heard this recipe years ago I couldn’t believe it.

    18. Jennifer,

      Wouldn’t these be really great dipped in chocolate??? I don’t know if that fits in the gluten-free category, but I’m just sayin…… 🙂

    19. I’ve been making this same recipe for so long. It’s a great way to satisfy my cookie cravings without all the butter and flour! I add chocolate chips sometimes too.

    20. These look great. And my husband would be in soooooo much trouble….

    21. You had me at 3 ingredients and Peanut Butter lol. Thank you for sharing at All My Bloggy Friends last week!


    1. […] recipe is based on my 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies, but just using 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 egg and then I mixed in some mini chocolate […]
