Every once in awhile I get this HUGE craving for peanut butter and today was no exception.  What I really wanted was a quick and easy, yummy dessert that didn’t take a lot of effort.  I could have baked my Peanut Butter & Banana Cookies, Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies or even these easy Peanut Butter Energy Balls but I wanted something more basic. Enter these one bowl, flourless peanut butter cookies, which also happen to be naturally gluten-free.

Easy 5-ingredient cookies

Forgot to make a snack for the kids? (big kids like Dad count too) No worries! These are really easy to whip up and go together in just minutes. All you need are 5 ingredients (I mean who counts salt), creamy peanut butter, brown and granulated sugar, eggs and baking soda. Mix it all up in one bowl, keeping the clean up down to almost nothing (my kind of cookie), and using a small cookie scoop,  plop it onto a cookie sheet then flatten slightly with the tines of a fork and bake.

By the way, if you don’t have a cookie scoop or two, go buy one. I held out for the longest time but, believe me, I wish I’d gotten one sooner. They save time and energy and all your cookies come out the same size. Great for when you’re making sandwich cookies.

See, what did I tell you, sooooo easy! And delicious! These cookies turn out wonderfully peanutty, soft and chewy, and they go great with milk or coffee or ice cream (just sayin’).

Now I’ve got to warn you, these might not stay around long enough to cool down. They are so yummy and so addictive I have to control myself not to eat them before the kids get home. Once they do, and Dad shows up, they’re gone in a flash. Maybe next time I’ll hide some. Just kidding, not kidding.
