peanut butter cookies

Hello. Its the school holidays here and I have discovered the best peanut butter cookie recipe ever! Its so easy and delicious and fast. I used this recipe here. Its the easiest thing.

Three Ingredients Cookies. 

1 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of sugar 
1 egg

Mix and roll out spoonfuls of the mixture.
Flatten with a fork on a baking paper covered tray.
Cook at 180C for about 15 minutes.

Cool and enjoy.

Soooooooo goooood. I had a couple of large family sized jars of peanut butter in the pantry that the kids weren't really eating. You could sandwhich them together with chocolate spread like Nutella if you have it but they are just as good plain. In the next few batches I made (because they really are that good and simple), I threw in some cranberries and chocolate chips. I made a triple batch of cookies and added a cup each of cranberries and chocolate chips. It says to use castor sugar but I didn't have much of it, so I chucked in ordinary sugar and brown sugar too. These are just as cookies should be, crispy on the outside and chewy in the centre. 

My three year old helped with everything. It was simple as.

It did get me thinking about how kids at every single school, kindy etc has peanut butter allergies these days. How come they didn't exist in our day when we were growing up? I don't want anyone harmed but we love peanut butter and nutella and it really limits what I can give the kids for lunch some days. That's why the darn stuff is all up in my pantry still. I wonder if Indian kids get peanut allergies as I've heard from a very young age, they are given mashed up peanuts in everything. Meanwhile, you must try these cookies as long as you don't have an allergy to peanuts. Not gluten, no wheat, no dairy. Easy as.

 "I want that one" said my youngest.

Dig in boys.

The proof is in the eating. x

I just love that milky lipped moment you have captured.Your cookie recipe has just entered my repertoire. My grandchildren love celery sticks filled with peanut butter, certainly no peanut allergies in my family. I think a lot of allergies arise from colouring, flavouring, mould inhibiting and flavour enhancing agents as well as pesticides people are exposed to without knowing. Aerially sprayed glyphosate is one of the worst as it also causes Alzheimers.

yeah great they look delicious!..I am on a no dairy, no wheat, but also no sugar regime, due to arthritis, makes it so hard, but perhaps I could try this with a sugar(natural) substitute, although buying peanut butter without sugar would be hard too I guess. Love the idea and your boys are so lucky to hav a mum like you!
