Easy (Flourless!) Peanut Butter Cookies

5 from 1 vote
The EASIEST peanut butter cookie recipe turns out soft and flavorful.  Chocolate chips, optional!


  • 1 cup peanut butter we recommend standard Jiff or Skippy, not natural style pb
  • 3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1 large or extra large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • optional: heaping 1/2 cup chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
  • I recommend dark or semi-sweet
  • optional: 1/3 cup oats
  • optional: sugar for rolling


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Beat peanut butter and brown sugar until smooth.  Add egg, vanilla, baking soda, and salt.  Mix for about a minute.  Shape into balls, and if desired roll in sugar.  Flatten with a criss cross pattern with a fork, or simply flatten with the bottom of a glass.  If you'd like to add Oatmeal Chocolate Chip PB Cookies, add chocolate chips and oats. Bake for 8-9 minutes, don't over-bake, and let them sit on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.  Makes 18-20 cookies.
