I have never made PB cookies without flour? Do they taste ok or really sugary?

That's the cookie recipe I was looking for. It's Peanut Butter Cookies but the easy way. Thank you so much for sharing it! I saved it this time. LOL.

Here's an easy one. . .1 egg + 1 cup sugar + 1 cup peanut butter Mix well--Scoop and flatten (get creative--potato masher, fork, bottom of a glass coated with sugar) Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes.

This also works really well in a cookie press.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies


1 cup butter, softened ( I microwaved mine so it was half melted which sped things up just don't make it hot or the eggs will cook!)

1 cup white sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

3 cups quick cooking oats

raisins or nuts (optional)


1. In a medium bowl, cream together white sugar, butter, and brown sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla.

2. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda,and salt. Stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in oats. If you are using nuts or raisins, mix into dough, combining well. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour. *** I was lazy and did not chill and they turned out fine**

3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Roll the dough into balls, and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.

4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes approx. 36-60 cookies, depending on how large or small you make them.



1 cup flour (*self rising* otherwise you need to add salt and baking powder so it will rise. You could also try wholewheat for a healthier option)

1 cup coconut

3/4 cup milk

3/4 cup sugar

2 medium bananas (the riper the better- I freeze all my bananas when they get over ripe and defrost in microwave for baking)

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Mix all dry ingredients together, add milk and banana- mix well. Put into a lightly greased loaf tin and bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes.

Sprinkle extra cinnamon on top if preferred.

*You can put sliced bananas on top as well as sprinkle a pinch of sugar for a crunchy topping*

I have also previously added 1/2 cup of chopped nuts or chocolate chips and it turned out yummy!
