3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Fall is here, which means it's time to enjoy some comfort food! I love baking cookies during the season because there are so many spices and flavors to try and test. Cookies are both great snacks and desserts.

I'm not the biggest fan of peanut butter, but this is by far one of my favorite cookies. Not only is it a creamy, smooth cookie because of the creamy peanut butter, it's so easy to make. My recipe only calls for 3 ingredients-- it's foolproof.

I also love that it's easy to make even if you don't have a food processor or mixer. Mixing the ingredients by hand will take a little elbow grease, but it's manageable. This "dough" is a bit sticky, but grease your hands with some cooking spray to keep your "dough" from sticking to your hands. Once the cookies are ready to bake, you won't have tot wait long to enjoy them. I bake them for 10 minutes (I like my cookies soft and chewy). You won't have to wait to long for them to cook-- that'll only take a few minutes.

Check out my recipe video below to see how my peanut butter cookies turned out!


  • 1 cup of smooth, natural peanut butter

  • 1/2 cup of sweetener (I'm using Lakanto's granulated white sweetener, but you can use their golden sweetener)

  • 1 egg


  1. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and spraying a cookie sheet with non-stick spray (I used 4th & Heart's ghee oil spray) or lining it with parchment paper.

  2. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients until well combined. The consistency will change to a thick, slightly sticky dough.

  3. Using a spoon, scoop enough dough to roll a ball (about 1 inch) in your hands.

  4. Place the balls of dough on the cookie sheet.

  5. With the back of a fork, press down twice, creating a criss cross pattern on each cookie. Tip: spray the fork with 4th & Heart's ghee oil spray to prevent the dough from sticking to it.

  6. Bake for about 10- 15 minutes or until the cookies are cooked through- they will feel soft to the touch.

  7. Let the cookies cool completely before serving.


  • These peanut butter cookies will last up to 5 days stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
