Amazing three-ingredient peanut butter biscuits taking the internet by storm!

No flour? No problems! These tasty little only cookies need three simple ingredients.

If you've got a hankering to bake, but you're low on supplies, or the kids are at home and are looking for a simple cooking activity - we have the perfect answer: Three-ingredient peanut butter biscuits.

Found in The Washington Post, the recipe only calls for three everyday pantry staples: peanut butter, one egg and some sugar. It's also easily customisable, so you can throw in some chocolate chips if you have them.

  • 200g peanut butter (either crunchy or smooth)
  • 175g caster sugar (or whatever sugar you have)
  • 1 egg

To begin, preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a baking sheet. In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter and sugar until thoroughly mixed. Then, add the egg and stir until a dough is formed.

Take your mix and use your hands to roll it into 3 cm balls. Space them out on the cookie sheet and then use a fork to flatten them out in a decorative criss-cross pattern. 

Pop them in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Take them out to cool. To store the biscuits, keep them in an airtight container. The raw dough can be wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen before baking.
