These Peanut Butter Cookies come together with only 5 ingredients! Get ready for the softest peanut butter cookies you’ve ever had! Best news ever: they’re also gluten-free!
We love peanut butter cookies and their satisfying, nutty, sweetness. This recipe is ridiculously delicious, quick and easy. Seriously, we can make these cookies faster than we can get them from the store! Bonus: these goodies are gluten free, so our friends who can’t have flour can always count on us for a treat.
History Lesson: Hats off to George Washington Carver for being an important early peanut promoter. His agricultural efforts extended to cookbooks that included peanut cookies which eventually evolved into the peanut butter cookie of today—hazzah!
What if I don’t have parchment paper or a baking mat?
These turn out best with a little buffer between them and your pan, but if you don’t have parchment paper or a baking mat, just be sure to lightly grease your baking sheet.
Can I make these in advance?
Yes. This dough freezes well, so if you want to make some to have on hand, simply wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freeze in an airtight container for up to three months.
Can I use a different nut butter?
Allergies getting you down? We understand. This recipe can work with your nut butter of choice, though it will completely change the flavor. These cookies do not always work with natural nut butters so be warned.
Can I use chunky peanut butter?
You can, but creamy is best to keep the integrity of the texture for these cookies.

The best and easiest cookie 🍪 recipe ever 💕❤️🌞 Ten stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 💕😊❤️⭐️
Perfect for my gluten-free friend and the one with an intolerance to butter!! Thank you!
I have made these a few times now recently, and me and my husband love! I sound a good truck that works better for us. Since they are so soft when they come out, we stick the whole tray of cookies in the freezer for up to 30 minutes after the oven. When they come out, they get much harder and I love them cold. Then they are the perfect consistency when they get room temperature. And my husband is picky and loves them! I love that this is so easy and few ingredients!
My whole family loves it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
Really good cookie’s. I thought they were a bit dry.
