Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Please excuse me as I breeze through dinner. I hope you don’t mind, but believe me, dessert is what ya wanna read about tonight!

For dinner I made eggplant medallions, prepared the same way I made them last week, but without chicken and with Brie instead of shredded cheddar cheese.

Eggplant Medallions


On the side I enjoyed roasted cauliflower, which came out of the oven first and was devoured before the eggplant medallions were done cooking.

Roasted Cauliflower

Sometimes ya just can’t wait!

I also enjoyed three large Monterey Pasta Company lemon shrimp ravioli, which I received from the company to sample.

Lemon Shrimp Ravioli

I was a little apprehensive about this particular flavor because a lemon flavor in ravioli didn’t really call to me.

I was pleasantly surprised though and really enjoyed the big chunks of real shrimp meat in the ravioli.

Tres Ravioli


Though dinner was yummy, dessert was yummier.


Tonight’s dessert was comprised of only three ingredients. Three *delicious* ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. peanut butter

1 Cup PB


Combine those three bad boys and bake at 350 for 10 minutes and what do ya get?

Flourless peanut butter cookies!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Moist 'n' Delicious

For as much as I love peanut butter,  I have a hard time finding really good peanut butter cookies.

I often think peanut butter cookies are too dry or floury. I want moist peanut butter goodness and – trust me – these cookies deliver.

Sadie was loving the leftover peanut butter.

Peanut Butter Lover

I had three bite-size cookies for dessert.


The cookies don’t really expand in the oven, so the dough is perfect for shaping into whatever shape you want.

Since Ryan is out at a soccer game right now, I made him three special cookies to enjoy when he arrives home:

I Love You

I hope he likes his sweet treat! (I assure you the cookies will be devoured by the cookie monster *me* if he doesn’t 😉 ).

  1. Hmmm…are they soft and chewy Julie? I think that many flour less desserts typically are?

  2. YUMMM those look amazing but dangerous! Whenever I have small cookies I end up eating WAY too many because I can not say no! However, I might have to try these with almond butter anyway.

  3. all i can say is i’m making these this weekend…i mean, sweet warm gooey peanut butter? does it get any better?

  4. Yum!! I am trying those for sure!

  5. In Canada we sell KRAFT peanut butter.
    This recipe is on the back of all of the tubbs.
    If you ever come to Canada….take home a tubb of Kraft Peanut butter…all my american friends request it 😉

  6. if you made them with nutella, would you leave the sugar out???

  7. OMG YUM! I wish I had PB in the house, I would make them tonight!

  8. Awww, you are too cute! 😀
    Those sound fab…I am making them this weekend!!!

  9. Those cookies look so good! I love PB, but in the past PB cookies have always not lived up to their name. Can’t wait to give these a try 🙂

  10. I just followed your recipes and made cookies for my boyfriend. Mmmm! Easy and delicious. I agree: Most PB cookies are too dry. But these were perfect! 🙂

    The second I saw those cookies I ran to the kitchen to try them. There’s nothing worse than dry cookies and these are the total opposite. They are so easy! I did half the batch plain and mixed chocolate chips into the other half. Might be the best thing I’ve ever eaten!

  12. Omg Julie, once I saw this post I headed straight into the kitchen and made them. They were amazing!!!! thanks for the great recipe!!!

  13. thats so cute!

  14. I’ve successfully made these with Splenda and Eggbeaters, too! YUM! They aren’t AS good as the real deal, but they’re great in a diet bind! 🙂

  15. What an easy dessert recipe! Very cute with the cookies for Ryan.

  16. im amazed that only 3 ingedients turn into a cookie! awesome!

  17. You & Ryan are sooo cute. I’m sure your wedding is going to be the most beautiful day – I can’t wait for October! ❤

  18. These look amazing Julie! About how many did the recipe make?

  19. Those cookies look wonderful!

  20. Wow whatta great cookie idea!!

  21. I have made those before…they are awesome!!!

  22. Julie-
    I also love PB but don’t like PB cookies! They never have much flavor and taste oily and dry. These look delish – a must try this weekend.

    My kids with thank you!

    Jocelyn in the STL

  23. I make these cookes too Julie! But usually use brown sugar instead of white sugar…I’m sure these taste just as good!

  24. I am going to try these cookies. Great idea!

  25. I make these as part of my contest prep to help with the sweet cravings. To help clean them up a bit, you can use splenda and an egg white and get the same thing, just a little bit more crumbly. SO GOOD!

  26. Loving this recipe!!!!!!!!!!! Yummy!!!!!!!

    and I love the th special ones you made for Ryan!!!! I bet he loved it!! And loved the cookies!!!

    I like to bake brownies or cupcakes and write love things as a suprise on them for my fiance, I write stuff on there with the candy gel stuff! Have a great day girl!!!

  74. […] Flourless peanut butter cookies […]

  75. Flourless peanut butter cookies. Amazing. Do you have a vegan recipe for this? I could try egg-replacer but i’m not sure that will turn out very well since it’s not moist like eggs are, or even applesauce would do right?

    • hmmm i’ve heard that a tbsp. of ground flax seed + 1/4 c. of water for each egg will work to “veganize” some recipes. maybe that would work for this one too???
