Got extra peanut butter? If yes, you should definitely make this easy peanut butter cookies. As a quick-fix afternoon snack for my two-year-old I let him help me make a batch of peanut butter cookies. The original recipe calls for only three ingredients, but I opted to add wheat flour and oatmeal for more fiber. This recipe is so easy, I let my son do the initial mix. He was so excited when I was setting up that I handed him the whisk and rubber spatula.

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Heat oven to 350°F or 177°C.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a medium sized bowl with a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula. 
  3. Scoop a 1 Tablespoon sized cookie dough on your prepared pan with parchment. 
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes. 
  5. Let cool in a wire rack- be mindful that as the cookies cools it hardens a bit.
  6. Sit back and relax, it's that easy.
Now take a piece of cookie or two, and pair it with milk or ginger tea.

The bits of peanuts adds a crunch that's just right.

Note: I am using the tabletop Imarflex electric oven, so that's 2 batches of baking. 15 minutes was enough per batch which yielded about 16 cookies.
