Peanut Butter Cookies 3.0 (flourless)

Peanut Butter Cookies 3.0 (flourless)
I cannot take credit for this recipe. I found it online when I was searching for GF peanut butter cookie ideas. I also don't know who to credit for the recipe because it is so common. If you google gluten free peanut butter cookies, you will find many recipes similar to this. The only difference is that most contain baking powder and mine doesn't.

This cookie is very sweet and a bit crumbly. The recipe doesn't contain any flour and can be made with only 3 ingredients (sugar, PB, and an egg). My husband declared this cookie his favorite, saying it wasn't the same as mom's, but it was still pretty good. I found it almost too sweet and a little gritty from all the sugar, plus I'm sure the calorie count is through the roof. Just try not to eat more than two in a sitting (and make them small).

This recipe is a great one to make if you don't have any special gluten free ingredients on hand (or if you're looking for a dessert to make for a gluten free friend). It's quick and easy, and it's a guaranteed hit with anyone who likes peanut butter.


1 cup Sugar
1 cup Peanut Butter (regular or just peanuts/all natural kind - and make sure there's no crumbs!)
1 Egg
1 tsp Vanilla (optional)


Cream together sugar and peanut butter.
Beat in the egg and vanilla.
Roll into 1-1 1/2 inch balls with hands and press down a bit with a fork.
Bake at 325 for around 12 minutes.
