Easy, delicious 4 ingredient gluten free peanut butter cookies!


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick spray.
  2. In a bowl combine all ingredients.
  3. For prettier cookies, refrigerate dough for 1-2 hours, then roll into 1 inch balls. If you just want the cookie to taste amazing and don’t care how they look, use a cookie scoop to scoop the dough without doing the refrigerating step. Place on the baking sheet.
  4. If desired add the classic peanut butter cookie crosshatch by pressing a fork into the top of each cookie. *See note below
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  6. Cool on rack and enjoy!


Spray the fork with nonstick spray to prevent the dough sticking when you make the criss-cross shape.
