Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Pin It!
I absolutely love peanut butter!! Whether it's in a sandwich or ice cream or milkshake or cookie or even on it's own... I adore it!!!!!!! It's something about the sticky, salty, sweet combination that made me fall in love with it and have you seen the scene in Meet Joe Black where Brad Pitt ate some peanut butter off the spoon? How can anyone not want to try some after watching that? Peanut Butter can be so sexy! hahaha
Alright, enough of that and back to the recipe. :P I suddenly felt like having some peanut butter cookies and since I always have peanut butter at home, i went searching for recipes. One in particular caught my eye as it didn't contain flour at all. The main ingredients were just peanut butter, sugar and eggs. As always, interesting recipes like this don't fail to intrigue me and I just had to try it out, again with some scepticism.
These turn out crispy on the side, a little chewy in the centre and it was stuffed with the taste of peanut butter so yeah! it's a winner!!!!!!!!
Adapted from All Recipes
Ingredients (Makes around 20)
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup soft brown sugar 
(Note: Using Soft Brown Sugar will make the cookie softer. Use White castor sugar if you like a crisper one)
1 egg
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

- Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Grease cookie sheets.
- In a medium bowl, stir peanut butter and sugar together until smooth. 
- Beat in the egg  then stir in the bicarbonate of soda. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. 
- Bake for 8 - 10 minutes in the preheated oven. 
- Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

  8. I recently made my very first peanut butter cookies (will post right before Christmas). I even bought my very first peanut butter jar! LOL. The recipe is very similar to yours (only little different) and I enjoyed them very much. Probably too much that I learned not to bake cookies so often.... =P I love your cookie shots. I had big struggle (again, this was my 2nd cookie photo shooting)....

  9. anything peanut butter is fine by me! Yum!!!

  11. Hi Sylvia,

    These cookies look really delicious but being a non-baker I think I have a fear for baking. Love the golden brown colour but also quite impressive to see how you have balanced that cookie on the cup!

  12. yay for GF cookies! looks just like my sunbutter cookies :D. yay for #peanutbutterlove! sending some #cookielove to you!

    Hope you're having a fabulous time, Sylvia.
    Blessings, Kristy
