Xavier Bakes: 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies

I might be alone on this– so if I am– just humor me for a second…

But when I was first introduced to this recipe, I was MIND BLOWN! I had never knew this could be this simple and sooooo yummy. Even though I have little to no experience with baking, I can still make these cookies!

Have fun– and enjoy! -X

Xavier’s 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, sugar, and egg.
  3. Scoop out a spoonful of dough and roll it into a ball. Place the cookie balls onto a nonstick baking sheet.
  4. For extra decoration and to make them cook more evenly, flatten the cookie balls by pressing a fork down on top of them, then press it down again at a 90º angle to make a criss-cross pattern.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the bottom of the cookies are golden brown.
  6. Remove from baking sheet and cool.
  7. Enjoy!
