Peanut Butter Cookies

Close to the easiest cookies I’ve ever made. And close to the BEST too.

These deliciously moist and fudgy Peanut Butter Cookies have only 3 ingredients. And 3 ingredients which you are certain to have in your kitchen cupboard right this moment, which means you have no excuse but to go whip these up right now!

I can’t believe it took me this long to come up with this recipe because it’s a real winner and my favourite snack by far at the moment (I like snacks okay).

They’re soft, naturally sweet, deeelicious and also packed full of fibre, plant protein and healthy fats. They’re also a great source of zinc, B vitamins, magnesium and iron. In case you needed extra convincing to give these cookies a try.

Make sure you tag me on Instagram if you make these. I promise you won’t regret it!
