Super Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Super Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

I had to share this recipe because it is so ridiculously easy – quite possibly the easiest cookies on earth.  They contain just 4 ingredients (all of which you probably already have) and they’re done in less than 20 minutes, including prepping and baking time!  They’re super simple and taste great making it a perfect recipe for teaching kids to cook.  It’s also handy when something comes up and you need dessert asap.  I was skeptical that a recipe without flour (that’s not a typo) could produce a true cookie, but I’ll be darned it did!  The lack of flour also makes the cookies gluten free which is an awesome side benefit if you’re gluten intolerant.  Hope you like them!
