3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are one of those kinds of cookies that are extremely easy to make, like these awesome 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies. Usually that is why people love peanut butter cookies so much, they barely take anything to make, and you have a batch of cookies ready in no time at all! Well, and because they are really delicious of course. These would be an awesome type of cookie and a great recipe for kids to try out baking, and since it doesn't require a lot of ingredients, it will be super easy to make and they won't get overwhelmed with too many ingredients and elaborate instructions. All you need for this recipe is some of your favourite peanut butter, most people use smooth for making the cookies, but, you can use crunchy if you like too! It would be yummy to have the little bits of peanut in the cookies as well.

You can find so many different kinds of peanut butter at the store, but my favourite kind is the all natural Adam's brand, or some locally made peanut butter in bulk. I find that some of the companies making peanut butter tend to add in some sugar and extra salt into the peanut butter, and I like that all natural flavour, and the healthiness of peanut butter with no sugar added. Peanut butter is actually really good for us. It is a great source of protein, and healthy fats. It is a great thing to use on toast, in sandwiches, as a snack with apples, or in smoothies with some banana and some almond milk for a super protein smoothie. You can even make protein cookies with peanut butter and some other healthy ingredients.

The next step is to add in sugar and an egg, and stir it all up, and then roll them into nice little balls and squish them down with a fork so that they cook evenly. Plus, it is the peanut butter cookie's signature mark after all! There is really nothing to it, no flour, baking soda, salt, none of that other stuff, just plain of peanut butter and sugar and an egg! It really couldn't get and simpler then that. These are great cookies to make if you are short on time, and need some cookies right away, or some baked goods to bring to a party or maybe for a bake sale. Many people tend to be allergic to peanuts so heed caution when you make them and let people know right away.

All you have to do, is simply rub or spray some oil on the sides and bottom of your measuring cup, before you put in your peanut butter. The oil will help the peanut butter to just slide right out of the measuring cup with ease and you won't have a super sticky mess to clean up after. You can also do the same trick with honey, agave, syrup or anything else that may be a little on the sticky side. Try out this awesome recipe for peanut butter cookies! Enjoy!
