The 3 Ingredient, 13 Minute Peanut Butter Cookies are not your typical peanut butter cookie because they’re made with only three ingredients and are ready in just thirteen minutes! They’re the perfect thing to make when you need something sweet to eat or have little ones wanting a quick snack.
These Peanut Butter Cookies are the cookie of choice for Mr. 365.
Until I started baking goodies on a regular basis I was buying Nutter Butters quite often. And I admit that I sometimes still do. But they’re becoming so expensive!
And forget when it was Girl Scout Cookie time – those Do-Si-Do’s were gone in less than an hour when paired with a glass of milk!
And no one else ever had a taste of them unless we were the first one to get to the box!
SAVE THIS EASY COOKIE RECIPE TO YOUR FAVORITE PINTEREST BOARD!
This has got to be the easiest cookie recipe I’ve ever made. And I found at my good friend, Mary’s wonderful blog, Barefeet In The Kitchen.
You can see it right here.
As I said, these are SO easy to make with just three ingredients! AND it takes literally ONE minute to mix the ingredients together, then 12 minutes to bake them.
You could even whip these babies up in the morning before the kids head off to school so they can have them in their lunch box! But not if anyone in school has peanut allergies. Don’t send them to school with them then.
But I suppose you already knew that. 😉
I was perusing Pinterest the other day to see if other desserts can be made with only three ingredients and I couldn’t believe what I found! There was a 3-Ingredient Dump Cake, and 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Oat Squares. As well as this Blueberry Cobbler, S’Mores Sugar Cookie Pie, and No Bake Mini Oreo Cheesecakes.
