3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies (GF)

I love finding healthier desserts that I feel good about feeding my family (and myself) and that still taste like a treat and not some cardboard "dessert".  These are super easy to make and they have been a huge hit at my house.  You can add chocolate chips to make them extra delicious or just leave them as is, because really, they are awesome just plain. 


  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla

*optional chocolate chips*


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla in a food processor and blend just until mixed.  I find that if you blend it too long the mixture gets dry.  If this happens add another drizzle of maple syrup and give it a pulse or two to mix it in. Add chocolate chips and give them another pulse to incorporate them.

Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray or lined with a silicone baking liner.  Press down with a fork in a cross pattern and bake for 10 minutes.  Cool until they are firm enough to be removed.  Enjoy!
