3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
These easy to make peanut butter cookies only require three ingredients – peanut butter, sugar and an egg. Perfect with a glass of milk!
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 egg
- Pre-heat oven to 375. Mix ingredients together until it becomes a cookie dough-like consistency. Yes, it does hold together like regular dough! (people ask me this all the time)
- Using a cookie scoop, roll into balls.
- Press down each ball with a fork using a criss-cross method.
- Bake approximately 8-10 minutes. DO NOT OVERCOOK! They will burn very easily, so don't let them get too brown.
- Sprinkle with sugar when they come out of the oven!
They are surprisingly delicious and pair nicely with milk!

thank you for posting this! I made these before for christmas and couldn’t find the recipe again. I think I’ll have the kids make them tomorrow! =)
Can’t get any simpler than this! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 3-ingredient cookie recipe.
They look great! Maybe I’ll bake some today 🙂
I’ve never seen a recipe with so few ingredients. These look great. They’ll be perfect when I need to bake and I’m out of everything.
oh, i’m SO giving this a try! my kind of recipe!!!
Thanks for the recipe! I love to bake and it couldn’t get much easier than this!
I love this recipe. I’ve made it twice now, and it really is that easy. They are delicious! And you are right: they go PERFECTLY with milk!
One time I used the recipe but left them as balls, and then when they came out pressed hershey kisses into the top. YUM!
I’m glad everyone is as excited about this recipe as I am! It is a great recipe for days, like Miranda said, when you’re out of everything else. You will find yourself making these all the time!!!
Tell me how yours turn out, send me pics!
These are the best, I make them all the time. Sometimes I use brown sugar in place of white or mix the two for something different. In the Gluten Free world these are huge.
Oh, another thing add some chocolate chips to them for a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie.
WOW! Those are simple:) I love finding recipes that Lani can have! Thanks so much for sharing this. I’m going to make them with Wesley when he gets home from school.
You know, I didn’t even think about these being allergy friendly!
I’m so glad they are!
I love this recipe…simple are my kind of recipies!
Those look soooooooooo yummy!!!!!!1
I love peanut butter cookies – my Ma always only forked them once and I know that isn’t the norm, but you know how the silly mind works and to me they just don’t taste as good criss crossed….. soooo strange…..
wow – now that’s what I call a quick ‘n easy recipe! My kids will love to make this one…
Oh my goodness this does look easy. I am going to get some peanut butter tomrrow so I can make some. Thanks for this 🙂
Those look yummy! The kids are home on a snow day. These would be a perfect treat this afternoon 🙂
(I love that they don’t have flour in them.)
I love that they don’t have flour too. It’s sooo easy.
I just made these for Lani since she can’t have dairy. I added the chocolate chips (dairy free) and she just picked out all the chips, lol! The hubby said they were better then his Mom’s:) Oh, and I LOVE the idea of squishing the hershey kisses into them.
I miss peanut butter cookies. I haven’t had them in years. Thanks for the recipe, think I’m gonna make some.
No Brainer and Peanut Butter got me in the tent. But mostly no brainer.
No brainer for sure.. these sound delish!
They are so easy! Just make sure you don’t overcook them, or they will burn.
Oh my — these look so fabulous I almost don’t believe it’s possible ^_^ Must try it out!!
WOW…ridiculously easy…my hubby loves PB cookies (me too)!
I like how it only makes a small batch too, then you can have a few and won’t eat them for days!
I use the Jiff all natural OB it isn’t real oily like other natural peanut butters, I will let you know how it works!
Well I would definitely try it again with regular PB, the natural makes the cookies really peanutty but not real sweet.
Hmmm..Yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I love baking and this one is so easy. Thanks.
I don’t know what I did differently but my cookies all melted into one whole sheet pan. Waiting on them to cool to see if I can cut them apart and salvage them.
Oh no! Did you grease your pan? If so, that may have made everything too greasy.
I love the idea, but mine were really wet and, although they didn’t run together they went totally flat. They also stuck to the pan and were hard to get out. No, I didn’t grease the pan. Is there a particulat brand of peanit butter that works better than others? I have lots of gluten free friends and I’d love to get this recipe to work for me.
Sorry! I have been making these cookies for about 40 years! My husband’s grandmother taught me to make them that way!
im gonna try this i love pb cookies
MY GRANDDAUGHTER IS COMIN OUT THIS WEEKEND AND WE ARE GOING TO BE OPENIN OUR POOL I THINK THESE WOULD BE A GREAT TREAT FOR HER AND HER FRIENDS..I JUST HAD HIP SURGERY ON THE 9TH OF JUNE SO I CAN SIT RIGHT ON MY WALKER AND DO THE OVEN THING..BUT WITH THE 3 EASY STEP OMGOSH…. IM EXCITED I’LL LET YOU KNOW THANKS.
How many cookies does this make? Thanks . Family favorite.
Is it possible to use crunchy peanut butter, instead of the regular US smooth type? (We have both in the UK, you may too!)
Do you think this recipe is possible with Splenda type sweeteners? It seems to me that it wouldn’t stand up that well though because the Splenda dissolves and it wouldn’t have a very sturdy body to the dough. Hmmmm
You can control the burning factor a little easier if you bake them at 350. In fact you may have to leave them in a few minutes more.
There are a few other things you can do with them. After you roll them into a ball, roll them in chopped peanuts before you flatten them.
Also, if you double the recipe, you can make sandwich cookies using your favorite frosting instead of sprinkling them with sugar.
So easy even a guy can make them lol, pulled them from the oven a few minutes ago and the only problem I see is there are not enough. They are really good and so simple.
I’m wondering if those of you who are having a problem are all using natural peanut butter, and the others who are successful are using regular pb? I know regular often has partially hydrogenated oil, and that can be a stabilizer (?). I have made pb fudge for years and when I make it with the natural, it never really hardens like it does with the other stuff.
I have heard that natural pb is a bit harder to work with.
Oh MY!! I am always looking for easy cookie recipes, and this one takes the cake 🙂 I am definitely going to make this one tomorrow, and have plenty of milk too! I’ve been craving PB cookies for awhile and now I can satisfy my cravings for sure!

I’m sorry don’t know how else to report this but every time I click the link saying 25 cookies with 3 ingredients or less I get taken to a porn site!!! Is there anywhere I can get the proper link please and can this be removed just don’t want people getting this filth especially when it could be children looking for the recipes I love the recipes just can’t seem to get to this link thank you X
I’m not sure which link you are referring to? This recipe is listed in this post, no links. 🙂
Just made these after a while of eyeing the recipe, being a bit unsure how it would actually hold together etc. But today I really wanted to make cookies but had no flour in the house so I gave these a go. Amazing!!! And so easy. I used an all natural unsalted peanut butter and while it was a bit harder to mix it all into a nice dough, it held together perfectly and the cookies are delicious! Dangerous to have such an easy, quick recipe 😉
I’m so happy that you tried it and loved it! It IS a dangerous one, ha!
Can you use a sugar substitute in place of the sugar (i’m thinking stevia) to make them low cal?
Yes! I have heard wonderful stories of readers doing that!
This recipe combines two of my favorite things: peanut butter and cookies. Most of my weight gain probably came from them. Anyway, can’t wait to try your recipe!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 3-ingredient cookie recipe before! I’m so curious as to how they taste, will definitely be trying these soon.
It sounds crazy, right? But it totally works!
