How to Make Cookies with Three Ingredients

Make peanut butter cookies with, you guessed it…peanut butter. Although, you can use another nut butter as a substitute if desired. 

Adding an egg or mashed banana helps bind the dough together. 

Then, usually, a sweetener is mixed in the dough. 

Recipes vary based on different tastes and diets. You’ll find vegetarian, dairy-free, and gluten-free variations listed below.

Once you gather the three required ingredients, mix, mash, and voila! In about 10 minutes, you are ready to bake (or perhaps air-fry) your cookies. 

Feel free to double the recipes and freeze the baked cookies or cookie dough. If you haven’t gobbled them all up immediately, you can store 3-ingredient peanut cookies in an airtight container or sealable bag for 3-5 days.

The cookies are perfectly yummy just as they are, but if you are like me and tend to tweak recipes, you can add in chocolate, vanilla, dried fruit, or whatever your heart fancies.
