Extreme Peanut Butter Cookies

Gluten Free, and Super Easy (And Only Three Ingredients)

Who would have thought that three simple ingredients could be so delicious?  My Mum sent me this recipe when she learned about me being wheat intolerant, and they have been a real treat when I have to watch what I eat.

Extreme (Super Easy Gluten Free) Peanut Butter Cookies
Extreme Peanut Butter Cookie ingredients

I should call these 'Extremely Easy Peanut Butter Cookies' because that's more accurate.

Are you ready?  Here are the ingredients;

  • One cup of Peanut Butter - the kind that is not full of additives like sugar and other unnecessary things.
  • One cup of brown sugar - I prefer the golden brown kind.
  • One egg. 

Seriously, that's it.

Dump the three ingredients into a bowl...

Mix the ingredients together with a wooden or metal spoon, until the dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

Mix until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl

Form balls of the dough (about one smallish teaspoon sized rolled in your hands) put them spaced onto a cookie sheet (I cover mine with parchment paper to make it easier to clean them) and bake in a 350F. degree oven for 10 - 12 minutes.

Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper

A little less baking makes them chewy and tender.  Watch them like a hawk, and don't overcook them or they will be too crunchy and dry.  They should just be starting to brown on the bottom, and be soft on top.

Let them cool before you eat them - if you can...

This recipe makes one large cookie sheet full, about 24 cookies.  Store covered in a dry place (if they don't get eaten immediately!).  I like them with yogurt and a bit of fruit preserves - told you my diet was a little weird.
