I’ve been working on creating a better version of my single serving peanut butter cookie. I previously made an eggless version. It was thick and rich, but I wanted something that is crispier and chewier.

Single Cookie Recipe

  • It has crispy edges and spreads while it bakes, which is what I was hoping for.
  • It is chock full of peanut butter flavor.
  • I also studded the surface with peanut butter chips giving it an extra peanut butter boost, but you could also use chocolate chips if you prefer.
  • It’s quick to make!

If you get a craving for a cookie but don’t want to make a whole batch this is a great recipe to try.

Recipe Steps

Combine all of the ingredients except the peanut butter chips in a small bowl and mix until smooth.

Shape the dough into a smooth round disc and place it on a prepared baking sheet. Press the peanut butter chips on to the top of the dough.

Bake the cookie for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cookie is set. Cool it on the sheet for a few minutes before eating.
