Make these Simple Peanut Butter Cookies that are just 4 ingredients and gluten-free! Perfect cookies for kids to make. Add chocolate chips or nuts, too!
Here we go again. It seems like everything I’ve made in the past few days includes peanut butter. But I’m not complaining. And I know some of you aren’t either.
After yesterday’s more involved Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Cake recipe, I thought I’d share with you a simple recipe. Because the truth is, when our family is craving a sweet, we rarely have the time to make a fancy 2-layer cake. We soooo enjoy those cakes when we do have them on special occasions, but normally our sugar cravings get satisfied with much simpler recipes.
Such as these pretty little cookies.
You might be surprised but these Simple Peanut Butter Cookies are not only simple, but in some ways, they are kind of healthy. Please note that I said kind of. Yes, there is some sugar, but these are gluten-free. The actually have no flour in them at all.
So if you have an allergy or just are looking for something sweet, a few of these cookies can be very satisfying. You can at least pretend that you are indulging yourself in a healthy snack.
Did I mention that these somewhat-healthy-cookies are only 4 ingredients?
You can whip them up in just a few minutes!
These cookies are soft when you take them out of the oven, so be sure to let them sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then cool completely on a wire rack.
Sometimes my parents have a certain craving for something sweet. I’m not an adult, but I know that sweet craving comes a lot! You know what that means…..baking time! These Simple Peanut Butter Cookies are the perfect recipe to satisfy that quick sweet craving.
Would you rather have a quick and simple chocolate chip cookie recipe? Add in some chocolate chips. Like raisins or nuts? Try adding those in…anything you think would be good! So get creative and whip up some of these simple cookies!
But watch out…this could be kind of dangerous……they are easily addicting!
