Quick and Easy Peanut Butter Cookies {Gluten-Free and Egg-Free}

Quick and Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe is a small adaptation of one of my favorite peanut butter cookie recipes, one that happens to be flourless and egg-free and contains only four ingredients. I've made the original countless times, and although this adaptation is new, I've made it several times already too. No need for butter or oil when you use a natural peanut butter sans extras. One bowl, a measuring cup and a teaspoon, mix, shape into cookies, bake for just under 10 minutes and enjoy if you can be patient for another 10 minutes to let them cool and firm up a bit.

Still flourless and egg-free, I've made these cookies to be ever so slightly firmer than the original recipe but still focusing on preserving the essential peanut butter purity that makes these cookies so highly enjoyable. They may have six ingredients instead of four, but they are still incredibly easy to make and have just as much of the intense peanut butter flavor. These cookies are a peanut butter lover's delight.
