3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies (Gluten & Milk Free)

When we had our baby boy this last September a wonderful friend of ours kept giving us goodies. I didn't need cookies after I just had a baby, I wanted to get back to my body fast. So hence cookies were the last thing I wanted to eat. But with these, I ate almost the WHOLE BAG! They were the softest Peanut Butter cookies I had ever had! They were soft and moist and SCRUMPTIOUS! I always grew up with my moms Peanut Butter Cookies, they are fabulous for 10 min out of the oven, then they get hard as rocks and you can't microwave them or anything. So when we were given these cookies I HAD to have the recipe. I was floored when she asked, "Did you really like them?" I said, "YESSSSSS! PLEASE can I have the recipe?" She said, "well its just 3 things." 3 things? I thought, how can a cookie this good just be 3 ingredients? She gave me the recipe and I was ecstatic. When I saw there wasn't any gluten or milk in them I knew I could make them for my Young Women at church! I have 2 girls who have gluten allergy and 3 girls with a milk allergy. So this is now my go to cookie for Young Women events. 
These are FABULOUS people I am telling you. They will change your life forever! 

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies:

1 c. Peanut Butter (if worried about gluten allergies - be sure to check on what kind of peanut butter you use. We just use regular.)
1 c. Sugar
1 egg

Pre-heat your oven to 350. 

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Grease your cookie sheet and place cookie dough balls onto it. With a dinner fork press the cookie dough balls down and make a cross hatched design. Place in your oven and cook for 8 min. or until they start to crack on top. Leave on your cookie sheet for a couple min. then move to cooling racks. Serve with milk. DELISH!

  5. Thanks. My daughter just realized gluten has been causing her a myriad of problems. But she does crave a cookie on occasion and she loves PB. Can't wait to try these.

  6. I have heard of these! They look great! Thanks for sharing at Sweet & Savory Saturdays!


  7. I cannot find Adams brand where I live. Is there any other type or brand I can substitute for?

    1. It is any NATURAL Peanut Butter you can find really. I know a friend who uses Peter Pan Natural Peanut Butter. You can use any NATURAL one you can find! Let me know if that helps! xo-Brook

  9. These are delicious! I'm always looking for the next best gluten free recipe for desserts and this is #1 for my Peanut Butter Cookies! This is a classic, easy and I made it in about 15 minutes flat. 8 minutes is really all you need for them to cook. Thanks for sharing this!
