5-Ingredient PB Cookies

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

Cookies from scratch don’t always have to be time intensive. Sure, we want that homemade taste, but without all the work. This time of year is hectic with holiday parties and school functions. These 5-Ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are so easy and can be made from ingredients you most likely have in your pantry. Chocolate and peanut butter have to be one of my favorite food duos.

We were invited last minute to a friend's house for dinner and I didn't want to show up empty handed. I didn’t have time to run to the grocery store but I had all of the ingredients for these and I literally threw these together in under five minutes. These are practically like drinking a protein shake (but much tastier) since they contain peanut butter and don't have any flour or sugar in them. 

Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

I'm big on texture...these were perfectly chewy and melted in my mouth. I was surprised that such few ingredients thrown together made something so delicious. I love quick treats like this that you can whip up especially during the holidays when you may need a treat in a pinch. You shouldn’t feel too guilty eating these "protein shakes" this holiday season.
