3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies: Simple, Delicious, and Budget-Friendly!

image showing the result of using this peanut butter cookie recipe

A few years ago, I found a recipe on Pinterest for "healthy peanut butter cookies". Somehow, when you leave out adding any flour to them it makes them healthy. However, considering how much sugar it uses, I disagree with the "healthy" title and think moderation should definitely be used when consuming these yummy snacks.

My favorite thing about this cookie is how you can easily experiment and make them your own. I usually make the batter according to the directions and then save half of it to play around with. I have added things like Nutella, chocolate syrup, and chocolate chips and it has always turned out delicious. This time I tried adding a bit of cocoa powder, which is why the cookies in the images are different colors (the darker ones being the experimental treats).

UPDATE: From comments on Pinterest for the pin for this recipe, I have learned that using natural peanut butter is probably not a super good idea. I'm not sure why, but when using natural peanut butter, the cookies can sometimes liquify instead of forming into cookies.

*As mentioned above, this recipe was found on Pinterest. I have been unable to find the original source, so if you know, please mention it in the comments so I can link to it!
