four ingredient chocolate chip peanut butter cookies

Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Tumblr

Unbelievably easy to make… These rich, chocolaty, peanut buttery cookies are more like peanut butter shortbread. The best peanut butter cookies don’t call for flour. I am so happy I made this discovery. Only four ingredients! Need I say more? 😉

2 cups organic, creamy peanut butter

2 large eggs

2 cups sugar

1 and 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients until thoroughly incorporated. Form into golf ball size balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and flatten with a fork using the traditional criss cross pattern. Bake at 350, one batch at a time, for about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool a bit before transferring to cooling racks. The cookies will seem a little soft right out of the oven, but will firm up as they cool. Fantastic with a rich cup of French press, tea or milk.

Enjoy, and Happy Teatime Tuesday!

    Yay, my mother used to make something similar to these. I never liked peanut butter “raw” but when it’s baked it’s soooo good. Such an amazing flavour 🙂

    These were so good! So simple! To keep things consistent (and because I love chocolate), I used 2 cups of chocolate chips. They were a bit more chocolatey gooey, which I absolutely love! Thanks for the great recipe.

      so pleased you like these! I love the addition of more chocolate! More chocolate is always the right decision 🙂

    does that mean they’re gluten free? i have some friends that are gluten free and this looks like an easy thing to surprise them with!

    Love the idea of this recipe…but I would forego the organic peanut butter UNLESS you’re using organic eggs and organic (ESPECIALLY GMO free) sugar. That’s not even addressing the chocolate chips.

      glad you like it, Conda 🙂 I use organic peanut butter to get rid of the nasty transfats that other peanut butters like Skippy and Jif have in them. xo

    Do you think you can cut the sugar in this recipe?

      You could certainly try, Marilyn. I’ve made it with splenda baking sweetener before too and it worked great 🙂 thanks for stopping by and for commenting. XO

    I like the simplicity of this cookie dough. It goes together fast and tastes delicious. However, I had difficulty incorporating the chips into the dough as I made the cookie balls. Did anyone else have this issue? Any advice for next time? Thanks, Melissa, for the recipe!
