Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Sometimes, the best recipes are straight up easy without any swaps or complications. Making cookies easy and accessible is something I am very passionate about, especially now having an almost 10 month old at home. When I develop recipes, I think about the ingredients I use and how they work together. Oftentimes, I’ll ask myself, “Does this particular ingredient mesh well with this one?” and give it a shot. If it doesn’t work, I alter it or abandon the recipe entirely. Thankfully, this peanut butter cookie recipe is the perfect blend of peanut butter, a touch of sweetness, baked until JUUUUST crisp on the outside; of course, the soft and buttery center. Oh, and these peanut butter cookies only take three ingredients.

I’m a firm believer in buying most of my groceries organic, especially my produce. I am also someone who tries to buy products without “natural flavors” and long ingredient lists. When I make recipes, I like to think about the accessibility of the ingredient list too, and this recipe calls for THREE ingredients you probably already have in your pantry or fridge:

California Olive Ranch
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar (or just regular cane sugar)
  • 1 cup organic peanut butter

Once upon a time, I didn’t eat peanut butter, and resorted to almond butter. Now that I eat both, I can guarantee more of these easy-baked cookies in the near future.
