Since going grain-free last June, desserts have become somewhat challenging. I’ve mostly been doing fresh fruit (or nothing at all), but sometimes you just want something with a little crunch to it. Enter the world’s easiest peanut butter cookie recipe. Three ingredients. Two minutes to mix them up. Another 10 minutes to bake.
These cookies are so quick and easy to make that my kids handled the recipe all by themselves. My job was just to photograph them (and, um, eat them).
Totally gluten- and grain-free, these cookies — I confess — aren’t exactly “healthy”, thanks to the cup of sugar. But for a quick sweet treat, you can’t beat them!
3 Ingredient, Grain-Free Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 whole egg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all three ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Using a melon baller or tablespoon, measure out cookies on a cooking sheet lined with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
Use a fork to make criss-cross patterns in cookies.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool before eating. (Or don’t. But you may burn your tongue. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.)
Makes 2 – 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
What’s your favorite easy dessert recipe? Do you also have a weakness for peanut butter?
