3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

(War sounds in the background) It was 8 in the morning. I still remember it like it was yesterday….the horror.

The boys looked at their morning oats like it was absolute rubbish….like I had purposefully given them trash to eat. A bunch of “NO” and “YUCK” were thrown my way as the sweat began to settle on my forehead….

“Shiiiiizz. It’s going to be one of those days”, I whispered to myself as I began to search around the kitchen for anything that I could feed my kids.


I kept hearing one of the boys say (No idea which one, they look and sound the same) and then the other chimed in with


It was like a zombie apocalypse but with nut butter instead of brains.

Those words still make me tremble. It’s two words that I hear on a weekly, if not daily, basis. My sons are addicted to the Peanut Butter.

Uff. Peanut butter for breakfast? Can it be done???

Oh heck yes, it can.

I bring you: 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter COOKIES.

**These are fantastic for those picky eaters who never seem to like anything from time to time. You can play around with additional ingredients like flax meal, chia seeds and hemp seeds too. You can also choose to NOT bake these and just roll them into balls with some seeds or crushed nuts. The options are really endless on this one. 

**P.s. Super big heads up: The photos that I had of the cookies were accidentally erased so this is a stock photo. The cookies will NOT be this light in color haha, they will be quite dark as peanut butter is fairly dark in color. Sorry to disappoint but I’m not about to make another batch of these just for a photo – I’m sure you understand (as a ball is whipped across my head).
