Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies – you are 3 ingredients & 20 minutes away from warm cookies.

I’m sure you’ve had days where you suddenly find yourself with a few hungry kiddos in your kitchen.  Enter Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies.  You can have a batch of homemade cookies ready in about 20 minutes.  Mom for the win!

Today is National Peanut Butter Cookie Day.  You knew that, right?  In honor of this special day, I am sharing a recipe I found on Pinterest.

If you have been sucked into the vortex of Pinterest spent any time on Pinterest, you’ve likely seen pins for Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies or 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies.  Same basic recipe, different name.

Intrigued with the idea of limited ingredients and hot cookies in 20 minutes, I had to give it a try myself.

Benefits of Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies:

  • Recipe uses a limited number of basic ingredients that you likely have on hand.
  • In less time than it takes to drive to the grocery store, you can be enjoying warm cookies.
  • Perfect for  a last minute snack idea.
  • Easy clean-up.

Drawbacks of Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies:

  • My personal preference is a chewy peanut butter cookie.  This recipe produces a crunchy cookie.
  • It’s a small batch of cookies (maybe that’s a good thing?!).

After making this recipe a few times, Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies have earned a permanent spot in my recipe box.  Limited ingredients and speedy preparation make this recipe a keeper.

Having said that, I’m still keeping my original recipe for those days when I have more time on my hands and can make a full batch of cookies.  I do prefer the softer cookie my standby recipe produces, but I don’t always have the time required to make a full batch.

Helpful Tips:

  • Be careful not to overcook or you will end up with very crunchy cookies.
  • We think these are best eaten the same day you bake them. If you do have leftovers, store in an airtight container.
  • Optional add-ins (1 tsp. vanilla or chocolate chips) may also be added.  While I’ve tried both, we prefer these cookies without the extra ingredients.

I haven’t been able to determine the origins of this recipe due to the multitude of sources I located on the interwebs.
