If you haven’t seen images of these 3 ingredient cookies floating around social media lately then where have you been??
I’ve seen them everywhere I look and of course this meant I had to try them out. Also they are dairy and gluten free which means they are suitable for all of us.
I’m not sure where the recipe originated from, I’ve seen it shared from so many sites and images that I can’t give you an exact source but my inspiration was taken from Pinterest.
As the title suggests this recipe uses just 3 ingredients.
You will need:
1 cup of Peanut Butter
1 cup of sugar ( I used caster although the recipe just said white )
1 medium egg ( it just said 1 egg. I used medium )
Preheat your oven to 180c.
Mix your ingredients together until completely conbined. Spoon dollops of mixture onto a baking tray lined with baking paper/parchment. The amount you make depends on the size of biscuit you want. I made about 12 and they were a decent size. If I made it again I would probably make about 15 so more treat sized.
Bake for about 8-10 minutes, keep a close eye. You want them to be still a little soft on top. Leave to cool slightly before attempting to move. Dust with a little caster sugar and serve.
These are delicious. I’d make them again in a second. Easy and quick prep and a short baking time mean you can have snacks ready to eat in 20 minutes.
I have a friend who’s been telling me about these for years and I still haven’t got around to making them! Yours look great 🙂
Thanks Helen, they were great. Going to let my 3yr old make them next time because it’s so simple.x
I must be one of those people that you’re talking about living under a rock because I’ve never heard of these, but I’m a huge fan of easy and delicious! I wish there was something other than peanut butter we could use in them because my husband doesn’t like peanut butter. I know!! CRAZY! http://www.ourfoodieappetite.com/zynodoa-restaurant-review-staunton-va/
That is crazy. Ha. Definitely try them and eat them all yourself. Could work with almond butter? Does he like that? X

*butting in* There are lots of ‘easy’ cookie recipes doing the rounds that use Nutella instead. Maybe he would like them instead?
Love how easy this is. Cookies to feed the 5000 in seconds! Perfect!
I must be the only person who hasn’t seen these before but I always love a speedy cookie recipe so thanks for sharing!
I love the sound of these although they do seem dangerously simple … I mean, it’s quicker to make these than nip to the corner shop. Hmmmm, might try them tomorrow!

Well, these sound delicious and so easy to make. I always have these ingredients in so will have to give them a try. 🙂
