Miracle Peanut Butter Cookies (no flour)

by Alli

I can recite the recipe AND bake these Miracle Peanut Butter Cookies in my sleep. Undoubtedly, I can also post this recipe in my sleep because it’s 4:00 am.

I woke up at 3:00 am with this recipe swirling around in my head! It’s the only peanut butter cookie that I ever bake.

I love that my kids grew up eating these cookies and now my grandkids eat them and help me bake them. 

No Flour Miracle Peanut Butter Cookies

The miracle? There’s more than one! First of all, there is no flour in this cookie. Nope. None. Nada.

Secondly, they always come out perfectly! Every time! You can’t mess up this cookie!

Thirdly (I’m sounding all preachy this morning), my grandchildren love them! Kid tested, kid approved – works for me!

Not only do my grandkids love these cookies, but this has always been my go-to cookie when my children were growing up. Seems I always have peanut butter, sugar, and eggs on hand.

Whether you need an after-school snack for the kids or one for yourself, these cookies are easy to make. As I said earlier, these cookies always turn out perfectly.

All you need is one cup of peanut butter, one cup of sugar, one egg, vanilla extract, and water. Mix peanut butter and sugar together in a bowl until well combined.

Add the egg, a teaspoon of vanilla and two tablespoons of water.

Drop by tablespoon fulls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with a fork dipped in water.

Bake for 10 minutes and cool slightly before removing them from the cookie sheet.

You don't need flour to make these peanut butter cookies. It's my go-to cookie when I'm making cookies with the grandkids.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten with a fork
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons water


  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Combine peanut butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix well with a large spoon.
  3. Stir in beaten egg, water and vanilla.
  4. The recipe calls for rolling the dough into little balls, but that takes too long. I just place them on an ungreased cookie sheet with a tablespoon.
  5. Flatten with a fork dipped very lightly in water (so the fork doesn't stick to the dough).
  6. At this point, if it's Christmas, I sprinkle with glistening sugar sprinkles. As for the rest of the year, I leave them unadorned.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool slightly before removing them from the baking sheet onto a wire rack. Enjoy with a tall glass of cold milk
