Happy Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies


I’ve been known to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for dinner.
I’ve been known to burn my hand every time I retrieve my cooling rack that’s not so cool anymore after sitting on my preheated oven.
I’ve learned that burning yourself while cooking guarantees that what you’re making will be delicious.
I’ve learned that cookies don’t necessarily need flour to be happy.

I mean look at these two:

I think it’s obvious they are total BFFs. Or at least until they’re enjoyed with a glass of milk…but don’t all cookies go to heaven anyway?

Happy Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
Recipe from Joy the Baker and originally the Gourmet Cookbook


  • 1 cup all natural peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
  • 1 cup sugar (1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup granulated sugar)
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • Small handful of mini chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix peanut butter and sugar until combined, about 2 minutes. Add baking soda and egg, lightly beaten. Mix for another 2 minutes or until combined.
  3. Roll a tablespoon of dough into a ball and criss cross the top with a fork. If you’d like to, place mini chocolate chips in the form of a smile into the dough. It might make these cookies happy.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes (turning half way through if your oven has attitude like mine does) or until lightly dark around the edges and remove from the oven. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
