You might have seen this peanut butter cookies recipe online as it’s an old classic, but have you tried making it? I had a go at making several versions of these cookies with white and brown sugar. I preferred them with brown sugar to give a more chewy center. And I’ve also decreased the amount of sugar to half a cup only so they’re not too sweet. This recipe is gluten and dairy-free and comes together very quickly. If your children like peanut butter, let them make this recipe as the results will be an instant success.

You can easily tweak the recipe by using different kinds of nut butter or some add-ins like chocolate chips. Or swap the cup of smooth peanut butter for a chunky one for added texture. It doesn’t get easier than these flourless peanut butter cookies!
