Easy Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Easy Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies recipe

This recipe for Easy Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies has been living in the dark recesses of the blog for years. Remember the "stacks" in your college library? That's where this recipe was—the Bake at 350 stacks.

The cookies are too good to live in obscurity. I brought the recipe out, dusted it off a bit, and present it to you today. Sandy in texture and satisfyingly crumbly, these peanut butter cookies are easy enough to make any day of the week. This is a great recipe to go to when you need cookies in a hurry!

You probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen right now. You'll need peanut butter, sugar, an egg, baking soda, vanilla, and flaky sea salt. That's right - only 6 ingredients are needed in the flourless peanut butter cookies, and one of them is the finishing salt! 


What peanut butter should I use to make cookies?


Be sure to reach for peanut butter that doesn't need to be stirred before using. You don't want the strictly all-natural with the oil on top. I like Simply Jif. It's smooth and creamy with not much added sugar or sodium.

I recommend FalkSalt. It has gorgeous, big, flaky crystals that you'll crush while sprinkling over the cookie dough. You've seen me use it on the Chocolate Hazelnut Caramel Ice Cream Pie and Salted Double Chocolate Chewies. If you don't have FalkSalt, use any other flaky sea salt.


The dough mixes together in a flash! Once mixed, you'll portion onto cookie sheets.

I use a 2-teaspoon scoop to portion the cookie dough. You know me, I'm prone to bust out the 2-TABLESPOON scoop for making cookies (See: cherry chocolate chip oatmeal cookies or chickpea flour chocolate chip cookies), but the 2-teaspoon scoop is perfect for this recipe. 



Before sliding the cookies into the oven, sprinkle with the flaky sea salt.

Preheat oven to 375. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. 

Mix the peanut butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and baking soda together. Use a 2-teaspoon scoop to portion onto prepared sheets. Sprinkle each cookie with a pinch of sea salt. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

The cookies bake up just beautifully. The recipe makes about 27 cookies. Not a ton, but just enough.
