Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies: The Ultimate in Gluten-free

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies are a quick and amazing way to make cookies without the flour!  I have quite a few friends that are Gluten-free for one reason or another, and when we get together for coffee, I was challenged as to what to make for everyone.  Many of my gluten-free friends are also dairy intolerant, so what recipes I did have, that knocked them out of the running.  Then someone suggested Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies.  I had never heard of such a thing, but checked it out, and of course it was on the internet.  I was leery, but after making a batch, I’m hooked!  Simple and fast, these cookies will please everyone’s palate!

The Ever Expandable Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies are so simple to make, the recipe can be multiplied as you need, from one batch to twenty.  Since everything is in either whole cup or whole egg increments, you don’t even need a calculator!  I’ve made these cookies in a single batch in 15 minutes, and I’ve made 10 batches at a time for a bake sale.  The cookies freeze fantastically, so if you like to make big batches all at once, you can freeze them and bring them out a few at a time for snacks or dessert.  They truly are the perfect cookie.

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies Make an Awesome After School Snack

My kids love peanut butter as a snack.  Sometimes they just eat it by the spoonful, or even put it in a bowl and eat it.  Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies are a great way for them to get the one thing they love to eat, and I get the peace of mind that they are getting a healthier snack than a snack cake or candy bar.  And since on child loves crunchy while the other loves creamy, the small recipe of Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies gives me the freedom to make both kids the cookies they enjoy.  The smiles I see when they come home to warm cookies is enough to make my day perfect.
