Simple, sweet and fast… just what you need in a cookie. These were just a sweet treat I made J. after sharing this recipe with a friend who needs to eat gluten free.

They literally only take 20 minutes to make and 12 minutes of that is baking time in the oven. Also, this is a good recipe for kids since you can just throw everything in a bowl and mix.

In a bowl combine 1 cup of peanut butter, 1/2 cup of castor sugar, 1 egg and 1/2 teaspoon of bi-carbonate soda. Make sure everything is mixed in well.

Roll heaped teaspoons full into a ball and place on a greased baking tray. This part gets a little messy because the mixture is very, very sticky. Don’t worry too much about them being perfect balls either since they turn out great either way.

Bake in a 180C preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden. This recipe will make about 20 cookies, depending on the size you make.
A great afternoon or after dinner treat and they go great with a glass of cold milk. They have even lasted longer than 24 hours in the house which is nothing short of a miracle… Yum!
