Mega Easy Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

I found a recipe for peanut butter cookies that called for only 3 ingredients- eggs, peanut butter, and sugar. Most of the people who made it were raving about it, but it seemed like everyone was making some minor modifications. Here's what I came up with!

1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 cup brown sugar (or 1/4 cup brown sugar Splenda)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda

Mix all ingredients well and drop by tablespoonfulls onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Flatten with a fork or the bottom of a drinking glass. Bake at 175 C (350 F) for 11 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet. Enjoy with a tall glass of VERY COLD milk!

Yield: 16-18 cookies

These are SO good and SO fast to put together! I bet they'd be good if you threw some chocolate or peanut butter chips in them too.

Now for the tip: If you spray your measuring cup with a teeny bit of nonstick spray, the peanut butter will slide right out instead of sticking to the sides! If I'm making something with milk or oil, I'll measure those out first and then reuse the cup since those will help the peanut butter slide out better too.

As always, be sure to check out Tasty Tuesday @ Balancing Beauty and Bedlam and Tempt my Tummy Tuesday @ Blessed with Grace for more yummy recipes.

Hmm... You know how I'm on a low carb diet.. My interest piques every time I hear "no flour"!

Do you think it'd still be okay for a diet? (I'm not sure how healthy peanut butter is hehe)

I made the cookies this weekend, and I love them. Needless to say I ate most of the batter raw, and only made about 8 large cookies!! Thanks for the great recipe.
