The Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies EVER! Gluten-Free too!

Share This Post :

This is one of my go to recipes when I want to quickly whip up some cookies! I’ve been making this recipe since I was in high school. I actually remember making these cookies in my speech class. We had to do a ‘how to’ speech and I choose to show how to make these cookies.

The best part about the recipe is you only need 4 ingredients and no flour! So they are gluten-free!

If you want to add chocolate chips or nuts, go ahead and add them in! I decided to try making them in a mini muffin tin this time around. They turned out good but I would recommend putting a mini reese cup in the center when you take it out of the oven because the center falls a little. The recipe made exactly 24.
