Easy-Peasy Peanut Butter Cookies

IMG_2132 Last week I ran a mini Netflix marathon, and about half-way through I had a major craving for something sweet. I was already in my jammies and in no mood to go to the store, so I did what any sensible woman with a sugar craving would do... I turned to Pinterest.

I began searching for simple cookie recipes - scanning for the ingredients I already had. I was missing butter, flour, oil, and chocolate chips (huge disappointment), but I was determined to make something work.

I ended up combining a few different recipes and came up with something of my own. I'm almost positive that anyone could make these cookies with items they already have in their kitchen.

Easy-Peasy Peanut Butter Cookies


  • Peanut Butter - 1 cup
  • Honey - 1/2 cup
  • Brown Sugar - 1/4 cup
  • Egg - 2
  • Baking Soda - 1 Tsp.
  • Oats - 1 cup *
  • Vanilla Extract - 2 Tsp. *
  • Salt - Pinch *


  • * indicates an optional ingredient
  • Honey and brown sugar can substitute each other. For example: you could either do 1 cup of Honey or 1/2 cup of brown sugar. I decided to combine them for the best of both worlds


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper
  3. Blend all ingredients except the oats (don't over mix)
  4. Briefly blend the oats
  5. Bake 8 - 10 minutes (undercooking is ok)

I baked about 6 cookies and froze the rest of the dough. I ate the dough throughout the week, so I can't exactly tell you how many cookies this recipes makes - oops. The cookies and dough were very delicious and definitely hit the spot!
