Three ingredients, a few minutes, and one bowl are all you need for flavorful, warm 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies! You will absolutely love how easy and tasty these flourless peanut butter cookies are.



  • 1 Cup all-natural peanut butter, preferably from a newly opened and well stirred jar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Line one large baking sheet with parchment paper 
  3. In a bowl add all the ingredients and mix well with a spoon.  
  4. You'll need to mix everything really well for a minute or two until it becomes a smooth dough.  The more you mix the smoother the dough.
  5. Take 1 1/2 tablespoons of cookie dough and roll into a ball.  We used a 1 1/2 tablespoon ice cream scoop. Flatten each ball with a fork making a criss cross pattern. You can also leave the cookies balls. ( See Notes)
  6. Place the cookies in the prepared baling sheet.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes.  Let the cookies cool completely before handling them.


  1. You can sprinkle some sugar, cinnamon sugar or add some chocolate chips to the cookies if you like some variations.
