These crunchy 3-ingredient peanut butter cookies are the epitome of a classic that every household needs in their recipe collection. It’s only 3 ingredients, super simple and an absolute pleasure to eat. I also love that they are packed with peanut butter and wow what a peanut butter it is – you can take a look at it here.

Did you know that you can also double the batch and then freeze some for a later date. Once the cookies have cooled completely, you can store them in an airtight container or freezer bag in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to enjoy them, simply place the cookies on the counter for a few hours so that they can come to room temperature.


  • Always best to use a room temperature egg
  • For an extra indulgent taste and crunchy outer shell roll the balls in a light layer of brown sugar then bake.
  • Go the extra mile? You can add a handful of choc chip cookies or even some Cranberries to the mix and change it up.

Although these cookies are super creamy and crunchy why not add a scoop of delish ice-cream and make an ice-cream sandwich for a little something extra special.
