Super simple and quick 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies that taste like you spent hours making them! Flour-less cookies that only use one bowl, no mixer and have a deep, rich flavor that are perfect for peanut butter lovers.
I love cookies! What I love more are EASY cookies, and these cookies are definitely in that category. You wouldn't know that there is no flour and only 4 simple ingredients by their taste. Peanut butter, brown sugar, an egg and chocolate chips is all these cookies need to make them super rich and flavorful. Peanut butter is the obvious star of these cookies making them perfect for peanut butter lovers like my husband. He loves anything with peanut butter and he loves it more when chocolate is involved too. Hence the 4th ingredient, Chocolate Chips!
How to Make 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
You can use any type of chocolate chip, use your favorite!
Gather your ingredients and utensils first. Having everything prepared before you start baking, makes the process so much easier and smoother. Other than your ingredients you will need: a mixing bowl, wooden spoon or rubber spatula, cookie scoop or spoon, fork, baking sheet, and parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
Now that you have everything you need, preheat the oven to 350° and line your baking sheets with parchment paper or baking mats. In the mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, brown sugar, and egg. Mix well until everything is fully incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips. Using the cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop cookie dough and place 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Take your fork and press the cookie down, then rotate the fork and press again making an "X" or "+" on the cookie. Bake in oven for 10-13 minutes until golden brown. Let cool on cookie sheet for at least 5 minutes before removing to wire rack or counter to cool completely.
That's it! They really are one of the simplest cookies to make, and you'd never know how easy by their taste. They taste amazing! Peanut butter flavor bombs with a touch of chocolate in every bite. Right up my hubby's alley, he keeps me because I bake what he likes! Well, that's ONE reason anyways!
