Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

To say I love peanut butter is an understatement. Then combine the creamy, nutty goodness with melted chocolate, and it's like heaven on Earth.

There are so many peanut butter cookies out there — some crispy, others chewy, and yet more rich and dense. These easy cookies are gluten-free, as there is no flour, as well as dairy-free. Better yet, they don't require any mixing equipment. Whip them up, bake them off, and then you have a light and airy treat in a matter of minutes.

Notes

Can't have peanuts? Swap in raw almond butter instead.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar, plus more for rolling
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup peanut butter, or almond butter
  • 3/4 cups chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Add the egg and beat well with a whisk to combine. Add the peanut butter and combine until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.

Place about ¼ cup sugar on a plate. Roll dough into ¾-inch balls and then, placing extra sugar in a bowl, roll in the sugar to coat. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes, then allow to cool.

Easy Shopping Tip

Purchase ingredients that can be used in a variety of dishes in bulk, in order to minimize waste and save money.

Easy Cooking Tip

Do all your prep in advance, and use three bowls: one for all your ingredients, one for all your prep, and one for all your refuse. Staying organized can help you put out meals faster.
