I’m probably the last person on the planet to try this recipe. I saw it the other day on my new found love, Pinterest, and pinned away. My comment was something like “Serious? 5 ingredient cookies?”
I wondered how good they could really be, without flour, and only 5 ingredients. I showed them to Jake and he said, “If these are good, I’m making them every weekend for girls, they’ll think I’m a genius“.
Hello, Jake, I hate to break it to you but it will take a lot more than this…
So we whipped up a batch. The skeptic in me thought -these will probably be awful. Guess what? Pleasantly surprised. I followed the directions exactly, and in less than 1/2 hour we were sampling some pretty tasty cookies.
I’m thinking my friends (who will remain nameless) that have cooking/baking challenges will be able to throw these together in a flash, and succeed in the kitchen! Great for peeps with gluten issues too. And college students. How about those living abroad who have trouble buying ingredients for treats? Everything except the egg can be packaged and sent.
Super simple, pantry-ready, yummy homemade cookies in just a few minutes. Yum.
5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp baking soda
½ heaping cup milk chocolate chips ( I like Guittard brand)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips. When blended, mix in the chocolate chips. Using a small scoop, form 1 1/2 inch balls (dough will be very wet and sticky) and place onto an un-greased parchment or Silpat (silicone) lined cookie sheet*. Don’t make them too big because they spread.
