3 Ingredient No Flour Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Today it’s so cold in my part of Georgia that they’ve closed the schools. It’s snowman cold…we’re just missing the snow.  The best part of it is that it has extended my kiddos’ Christmas break until tomorrow.  I’m super happy about that!  I was able to get my 14 year old son in the kitchen, with the lure of “cookies” and “it won’t take long” and “just 3 ingredients”.  YAY!

Just 3 Ingredients!

I’m almost out of flour and will not be venturing out today for groceries, so I looked for a “no flour” cookie recipe and found this one by Stephanie Brown! (The link I found on About.com to this recipe no longer works. See Recipe Below.)  BTW, I bought that wet/dry measuring tool about 5 years ago and I only ever use it for peanut butter.  It irks me when I buy things that I don’t use.  Why won’t I part with it?  You never know when you need to measure a lot of peanut butter and want to shoot it out like a slow canon.  Priorities man, priorities.

My son did the stirring.

Saban watched.

My son learned how to criss-cross the tops using a fork.

Then he added a snowdrift of sugar.  LOL!

Saban questioned that abundance of sugar but decided it was fine, since she doesn’t cook much and is still learning.

Our whole family tried these today and everyone thought they were great.  Well, I think I like my recipe with flour more but these are very good.  We all found them to be much richer than my usual recipe.  So, I’d say if you usually eat 3 you’ll eat 1…or let’s get real and say if you usually eat 5 you’ll probably just want 3.  LOL!  Regardless, I thought they were a great quick treat for only needing 3 ingredients and being out of flour!  Best thing for me?  Making them with my son.  LOVE!

Happy Cooking!

  1. Loved the pic of Saban questioning the sugar!!!!

    1. Jamie, That dog cracks me up! One day she’s just going to say, “Move over. That’s not how you cook this.” Then she’ll get her own dog cooking show. LOL!

  2. My daughter was bored. We didn’t really need any cookies in our house, but this was something she could do on her own without my help! She picked the recipe herself from Pinterest based on the picture. Well done! Thanks for keeping her occupied for me. 🙂

    1. That’s awesome, Courageous Jane! I love that your daughter was able to make them by herself! 😀 Way to go Courageous daughter! It made my day knowing that recipe was used by a kiddo. YAY!

  3. I pop pnut butter cups on top

  4. Thanks for the recipe, I am making them with my dairy and gluten free niece tomorrow!

    I had to comment about your measuring cup, I have one that I’m surprised I haven’t worn out yet. I used to decorate cakes & made lots of icing with shortening so I used it for that for a few years. Since then I use it for not only peanut butter, but also mayo & miracle whip, corn syrup, honey, and even pumpkin puree for baking. I also used it to measure out mashed potatoes for a potato bread. Just about anything that it can make easier to get out of the measuring cup! Just wanted to offer some suggestions, because I think it’s quite handy!

    Happy baking!

    1. Jessica,
