Go-To Peanut Butter Cookies

By Posted on 0 Comments 1 min read 133 views

Peanut butter cookies are one of my favorites.  This recipe is a quick fix to satisfy any peanut butter cookie craving and only uses 5 ingredients.  The last ingredient, sea salt, is the key that gives the cookies an addictive salty finish.  I used natural peanut butter because I feel they hold up better but feel free to try them with any kind – crunchy, smooth, natural, not.  I also add an extra splash of vanilla. Since the cookies are flourless, they’re very tender, so I advise letting them cool on the pan before moving them.



1 cup peanut butter

1 cup sugar

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 egg, lightly beaten

Coarse sea salt (for sprinkling)



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the peanut butter, sugar, vanilla and egg until well combined (smooth)
  3. Spoon one tablespoon portions of the mixture onto an ungreased baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between each mound
  4. Flatten the mounds with a fork, making a crosshatch pattern on the cookies
  5. Sprinkle coarse salt on top of the cookies
  6. Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden around the edges

Happy Eating!
