SRC: Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Ok, actually 4 counting the chocolate chips!!!

Another Secret Recipe Club has come (and the last before January).

Secret Recipe Club

This month I was assigned Fit Mamma Real Food. I really enjoyed reading her blog because she recently had a little baby! Since Kellen's arrival is literally around the corner all things baby are awesome. I liked reading her natural birth story (hoping to have one myself) I like reading about the experience of other families. Heather also has great recipes on her blog and when I saw 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies I was sold! I had a bag of semisweet chocolate chips in my pantry as well, and figured why not throw them in....who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter??

Ron and I loved these cookies (I especially loved how easy they are to make)! You can certainly opt out of the chocolate, or replace it with another type of chip. Thank you Heather for a new cookie recipe!


1 cup natural peanut butter (I used Skippy Creamy Natural)
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Using a hand mixer, mix peanut butter and sugar till fluffy. Add the egg. Finally gently fold in chocolate chips. On a non stick cookie sheet (I used a slip mat), evenly space the cookies. Use a fork to press the cookies down. Bake in the oven for 6-10 minutes depending on the cookie size (I baked 15 cookies for 9 1/2 minutes- mine were a little large due to the chips). Allow cookies to cool for 10-15 minutes on a wire rack.


  1. I recently made a choc chip peanut butter cookie and it was delicious so I am betting on these.

  2. Cookies are the best thing at the end of a pregnancy :). Good luck on your upcoming delivery. My son Cooper was born 5 months ago today and I had a natural birth. It was the best decision I made and the recovery was so much easier than my first pregnancy where I had an epidural.

    Great cooking with you in the SRC!

  3. Love that these cookies are so simple and gluten free. Pinning these for later.

  4. Umm, YUM! Those look so delicious - what a great choice. Congratulations on the impending birth of you little one and I can't wait to "meet" him! :)

  5. So easy - I need to make these with my kids - they would love them!

  6. We love Peanut Butter Cookies and this is a great recipe for the SRC.
    Have a good week!
