This Low Calorie 3 Ingredients Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe has no flour and no butter, and is so easy and fun to make!. I made this recipe for my daughter’s last play date, and I had to stop the girls from eating the entire tray! They are kid approved (and demanded now) in my house. And I love that they are a healthier version, so I can have some too.

Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies Prep and Storage

Meal Prep: You can make the batter ahead of time and chill it in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also scoop the cookie dough into balls, place on a baking sheet and freeze. Once completely frozen move to a freezer bag or container and store for up to a month in the freezer. Bake as directed – baking just 1 cookie or the entire batch still requires the same heat and time.
Storage– Store in the fridge for 5 days or the freezer for 1 month.

You can use any peanut butter you like, but I recommend no sugar added, creamy peanut butter for best results.
Special Tip: If you don't want the pattern on the tops of the cookies you can skip that. You can also add a Hershey's kiss to the top of all or half to mix it up a bit.
