No Flour Peanut Butter Cookies

Standard

Are you currently trying to make some lifestyle changes and eat healthier like me but just have to have something sweet now and then?  Well, let me just tell you how much I absolutely love these no flour added peanut butter cookies.  They take less than 20 minutes to make and only contain 4 ingredients.  I recently have been trying to find recipes which are quick and simple. In the past I have almost always wanted to take on the most challenging and difficult recipes.  The more I find ways around spending endless hours in the kitchen with simple recipes, the more I realize it doesn’t have to take me countless hours of preparing a recipe to make something which tastes delicious.

This recipe seriously is the best peanut butter cookies recipe I have ever made.  The cookies are incredibly moist and chewy; if you’d like a crunchier cookie just bake them a minute or two longer.  I suggest using Jiffy Peanut Butter (not sponsored) or any peanut butter that is not all natural.  The cookies seem to crumble and are overly dry when using a natural peanut butter.  Another added bonus with this recipe is there is no need for a mixer and barely any clean up.  This recipe is my new favorite cookie recipe and I am excited to share it with you.

I will be posting more healthy and quick recipes for all of you who are trying to eat healthier like myself and just need something to satisfy your sweet tooth now and then. Recipe is below!

~Enjoy~

Ingredients/ Makes 12-14 Cookies

1 cup peanut butter (preferably Jiffy) Not sponsored
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar (preferably Domino’s) Not sponsored
1 egg

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Add and mix all ingredients in a bowl.

Take 1 1/2- 2 tablespoons of dough and roll into balls; place on cookie sheet.

Use a fork and lightly push down to make a pattern in both directions.

Sprinkle the top of each cookie with sugar.

Bake 10 minutes for a chewy cookie and 12 minutes for a crunchy cookie.

Note: I rotate my pan by turning it around after 5 minutes of baking. Also, allow to cool on the pan a couple of minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.  This allows the cookies to set up and not fall apart as easily.
