Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

These are the easiest things you will ever make.


They have three ingredients.

Yes, you read right. Three.

You mix everything together in a bowl with a spoon, then you roll the dough into balls and 10 minutes later you have hot cookies.

See? Easiest things ever.

These cookies are flourless.

Huh? Yeah I know.

When I first saw the recipe I was like “What? How do they stick together and end up so thick?”

But it works. Somehow.

The texture is crumbly. The cookies melt in your mouth, in a similar way to shortbread. But they are softer.

You can add chocolate chips to them if you like, or even dip them into melted chocolate (yum!), but here I have made them plain, simple and easy.

Adapted from Janelle Bloom.

375g peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg

Preheat the oven to 180 C and line 2-3 baking trays with parchment paper.

In a bowl, mix together the peanut butter, sugar and egg with a wooden spoon until combined and thick.

Roll large teaspoons of dough into balls and place on baking trays. Flatten them with your palm or a fork.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on trays completely as they are delicate when hot. Makes 24 cookies.


I highly recommend slathering these in Nutella.

Or turning them into peanut butter and Nutella sandwich cookies. Yum!
