A couple months ago, I shared these Old Fashioned 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies from my childhood. Naturally gluten free and completely flourless, they are the simplest cookie recipe I’ve ever made. My 7 and 9 year old boys have been making them on their own for a while now.
1 cup of peanut butter + 1 egg + 1 cup of sugar = Peanut Butter Cookies!
We made several batches of peanut butter cookies over the summer and then I started playing with the recipe. I love the chocolatey kick that this version has and it is still one of the easiest cookie recipes ever!

- 1 cup extra chunky peanut butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Stir together the peanut butter, sugar, cocoa powder and egg. Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine. Scoop onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. (Roll into
- 1" balls with your hands, if you do not have a scoop.) Press down with
- the back of a fork and then press again from the opposite direction, to
- form the crisscross pattern on top.
- Bake for 12 minutes and then let cool on
- the tray for 1-2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to finish
- cooling. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
