Peanut Butter Cookies- The Easiest Ever!

Peanut Butter Cookies- The Easiest Ever!

Jump to Recipe

Out of all of my cookie recipes, this one for peanut butter cookies has got to be my favorite. I can’t think of an easier, more versatile and delicious treat. I’ve made it for all of my friends and family at some time or another, and they’ve all loved it!

What you will need

  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp flour (I used all-purpose)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free milk
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Making your peanut butter cookies

Once you have your ingredients, everything is super easy.

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, almond milk, and brown sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.

Combine the dry ingredients to the wet and mix them well.

Using your hands, form the batter into balls that are about 1 inch in diameter. Place them on the baking sheet.

Using a fork, lightly press down on the cookies twice, making the shape of an X, until you get the checkered board look that you see in the photos.

Lastly, place the cookies in the oven and bake them for ten minutes.

These are seriously some of the easiest cookies I’ve ever made. They take a total of twenty minutes to make, including the baking time. You can make a delicious treat for yourself and your family and friends, or double the recipe and bring them to a party.

There are also so many ways you can spice these cookies up even more! For example, I love dipping half of them in chocolate, or drizzling chocolate on top (photos below). You can even use this recipe to make these cookies into these peanut butter and jelly sandwich cookies! The possibilities are endless!
