Easiest Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

This is a novel recipe for easy Peanut Butter Cookies. Speaking of cookies, I wish I had a dollar for every cookie I’ve baked over the last 30 years.


I know you’re supposed to be efficient and bake cookies in bulk, but we usually make a half-batch at a time and eat them fresh and warm from the oven.


Sometimes we find that we’re out of an ingredient like butter or chocolate chips for our favorite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.  With only THREE common ingredients, these cookies are a nice substitute for variety.


Easy Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies


2 egg whites, beaten stiff
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter, smooth or crunchy


Beat egg whites until stiff and fluffy.  Add sugar and mix well.  Add peanut butter.  Roll into small balls and press with fork.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.


Unwrap some chocolate kisses and pop one on top of each cookie to make them fancier–or just to add chocolate, which makes almost everything better.


Told you they were easy!


  1. I’m going to try these – My mom had a recipe for PB cookies without flour then she lost it.~

  2. Dear Charlotte,

    Thanks always for your encouragement! We have been making Miracle Cookies for years(sounds like the same recipe basically) and one more ingredient adds lots of flavor…1 teaspoon of vanilla. The recipe was so easy to remember because it was all “ones”. One cup peanut butter, one egg, one cup sugar and one teaspoon vanilla! We would stuff all kinds of fun things on when freshly done; choc. chips, sprinkles, raisins and so on. Plus, it is gluten free! I will try your variation with the egg whites beaten, maybe this will help it not be so sticky and won’t need to refrigerate it . Blessings, Mae

      We’ll have to try it with vanilla, Mae–my husband brought back big bottles of vanilla from his trip to Mexico! It hadn’t occurred to me that they are gluten free–thanks for the tip!

  3. They’ve come out of the oven and they taste great! Kids will be pleased when they get home from school. Will try them with the vanilla next time. Love that they are dairy and flour free!

      Yay! Enjoy! Hmmm, that sounds good right now…
