3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Did you know that today is National Peanut Butter Day? Say what??  I love pb and was inspired to make some cookies today.  I decided to jazz them up with a simple chocolate glaze.

Here is my SUPER simple peanut butter cookie recipe that is naturally gluten free!

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 1 cup natural peanut butter (I use unsweetened but salted)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Mix together pb, honey and egg.  Combine well.
  3. Scoop onto a lined cookie sheet (batter will be very soft and sticky)
  4. Bake 15-18 minutes until golden brown.

*yields 20-24 cookies, depending on size

Simple Chocolate Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons butter/coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  1. Melt butter/oil.
  2. Whisk in cocoa powder.
  3. Whisk in honey.
  4. Let thicken, then drizzle onto cooled cookies.

*mixture will thicken upon standing

  • I tried this recipe and the cookies came out good except the fact that I burnt them a little because I thought they had to be hard and crispy but they were delicious

  • There in the oven right now. I made a few changes. I halfed the recipe. The batter was the consistancy of peanut butter so I added 3 tbs flour. I also sprinkled cinnamon on top before baking!

  • I cut my peanut butter down by about 1/3 a cup, but I did add half a banana and a packet of instant apples and cinammon oatmeal. I baked at 350 for 15 minutes. They came out “fluffy”–not chewy and not hard. More “cake” like. I enjoy them. And, they make me feel like I’m not eating something really fat. I would have just dipped my spoon in some peanut butter and drizzled it with honey for dessert anyway–this is way better. Plus, I’m saving the rest for my husband who will totally benefit from these after a workout. Plenty of protein! Yay.

  • Hi,
    I made these cookies and they’re addictive. They are not too sweet (I didn’t use the chocolate glaze) and perfect when you’re in need of a snack.

    I have one question though, can I use almond butter in place of peanut butter the next time I make these goodies?

  • Do you happen to know what the calorie count/nutritional breakdown of these are? I just made them, except I cut down the recipe to like 1/4’s just to try it first.. I also added a couple sprinkles of coconut flour and stevia (I know, I know, not allowed in the paleo diet but I tweak mine a little LOL), and a couple of pieces of bananas. I’m thinking mine are probably like 200 cals per cookie.. the natural pb is def high in calories.
