Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

If you still have some last-minute holiday baking to do, these Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies are always a winner in our house! I love these cookies because the base dough is only three ingredients and is gluten-free. Feel free to add in whatever else that your family likes. I made two batches this week and added in holiday M&M’s to one, and then used Hershey’s Kisses for a Hershey’s Kiss Blossom Cookie.

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

One Egg

One Cup of Sugar (I prefer the Domino Golden Sugar as it is less processed and gives the cookies a nice golden color)

One Cup of Peanut Butter

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Blend all ingredients with a hand mixer until a soft dough forms.

With a cookie scoop, place on a non-stick baking pan.

Cook until browned but the cookies still have a soft texture. Do not overbake or they will be hard. You will want to check the time on these but it should be around 8-10 minutes.

Tip: If you are making the Hershey’s Kisses Blossom cookies,  you will need to wait just a few minutes before you place the Hershey’s Kiss in the cookie or it will melt.

Serve and enjoy!

I don’t know about you, but I absolutey love cobblers! Cobbler is related to crumbling and crisp desserts. It is a deep-dish fruit dessert with a thick biscuit topping, or in some cases, a loose crumb topping. Cobbler is typically made using fruits such as apples, peaches, blueberries, and raspberries. The following are some fruit cobbler recipes that use less common fruits. I hope that you will enjoy!

Blended Chia Seed Pudding

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

I have been wanting to hop on the Chia Seed Pudding trend for so long! I was concerned about the texture and whether or not that would be an issue, but with the way that this recipe is blended together it is so creamy and delicious! Chia Seeds are loaded with anti-oxidants, fiber and protein, and are so good for you!

This Blended Chia Seed Pudding could not be easier to make, and you can really customize it with different toppings like fruits, nuts, shredded coconut, etc…. I am excited to whip together a Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding for fall!

Blended Chia Seed Pudding (serves 1) 

Ingredients:

1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

2 Tbsp. Chia Seeds

Pinch of Cinnamon

2 Tbsp. of Peanut Butter or Almond Butter

Sweetener of your Choice (I used 2 packets of Truvia)

Instructions:

Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

Place in a mason jar and refrigerate for at least 4-6 hours or until the pudding has set. (I have found that it is best if you leave it overnight.)

Serve with your favorite toppings. I used the Coconut Milk Redi-Wip on the top of mine and it was so good! I am going to add fresh fruit and shredded coconut the next time!

Enjoy! Please let me know if you try it!
