Gluten Free 4-Ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

by Faith Ledbetter

December 4th, 2021 is National Cookie Day, AKA one of the best days of the year. Who doesn’t love an excuse to make a fresh batch of cookies?  

I looked everywhere for the perfect recipe that combined my love of Natural Way peanut butter (YUM) with my love of using very few ingredients (I am not a baker by trade) and found this AWESOME recipe from Gimme Some Oven 


  • 1 cup of peanut butter – I used Natural Way gingerbread peanut butter to give the cookies more of a seasonal taste 
  • 1 cup of sugar 
  • 1 egg 
  • ½ cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips  


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  

Line a baking sheet with either parchment paper or aluminum foil – you can also use non-stick spray.  

Mix up all four ingredients in a medium-sized bowl – I used an electric mixer to make sure the ingredients were all distributed evenly throughout the mixture.  

Roll the dough into tablespoon-sized balls and space them evenly on your tray. Flatten them slightly using a fork or your hand.  

Bake the cookies for 6-8 minutes, or until they are browned. Let cool for 3-5 minutes before eating.  

It really is that simple and these were delicious! I even made a TikTok documenting my baking journey that you can view here 

Keep an eye out for more recipes that may or may not be as simple as this one. Here’s to hoping for the best!
