You Can Make Deliciously Nutty Peanut Butter Cookies With Just 2 Ingredients

Cooking times and ingredient proportions vary depending on the sweetener you choose, but most recipes recommend cooking two-ingredient peanut butter cookies at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. For liquid sweeteners, you should add two tablespoons for every cup of all-natural peanut butter. Powdered sugar should be added in a one-to-two ratio with peanut butter. For every cup of peanut butter, add half a cup of powdered sugar. Powdered sugar peanut butter cookies take nine to eleven minutes to bake while the cooking times for maple syrup and honey lie between eight and ten minutes.

Alternatively, you can swap powdered sugar or liquid sweetener for a half-cup of pitted dates or mashed bananas. However, you’ll need a food processor to ensure proper distribution and a uniform texture. While the sweeteners will help thicken the peanut butter into a dough-like consistency, it’ll still be softer than a typical cookie dough. Consequently, you should refrigerate the dough for at least half an hour to firm it up. Chilling cookie dough is a quintessential technique for more flavorful, soft cookie recipes, anyway.

Because these cookies lack extra fat from butter and eggs, they’ll be more crumbly than chewy. Form the cookies into one-tablespoon mounds for a smaller, more cohesive cookie you can gobble up in two or three bites. If you want to amp up the sweetness, you can roll the cookie dough in sugar or add chocolate chips, dried cranberries, or crushed banana chips to the dough.
