4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies - Tips!
We played around with the recipe quite a bit (as in we've had a lot of cookies lately!) Add chocolate chips to the batter or use different types of chocolate toppers for different effects.
The amount of sugar used is a matter of taste. I did a few batches with ¾ cup of sugar instead of a full cup and still loved them. 🙂
If there's an allergy to peanut butter in your house, then use any unsweetened nut butter. We used sunflower seed butter.
Ultimately, this was our favorite. It received kudos for the presentation. (I do believe this version looks a bit like a witch's hat!) And, the layer of chocolate on top of the soft cookie was irresistible!

4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies
- 1 cup peanut butter or any unsweetened nut butter we used sunflower seed butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg lightly beaten; or egg replacer
- 24 individual pieces of chocolate
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Mix first three ingredients together in a large bowl until smooth and creamy.
- Shape 1 Tablespoon of batter into a round ball and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat until there are approximately 24 balls.
- Optionally, lightly coat the outside of each ball with sugar by rolling the ball in a shallow bowl of sugar.
- Flatten balls to about ½ inch thickness.
- Bake for 8 minutes.
- Remove from oven and place a chocolate piece in the center of each cookie. Press lightly into place. Repeat for all cookies.
- Return baking sheet to oven and bake for 3 minutes more.
- Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes and then on a wire rack until cooled. Cookies will continue to firm up when cooling.
I love that these are only 3 ingredients! They're so cute too!
I'm wondering can I roll in colored sprinkles/sugar before baking?
Absolutely! That's a fantastic idea!

They do look like witch hats! How fun. So simple and delicious - can't beat that. 🙂

Oh man I haven't had a regular old peanut butter blossom in years! Such a great classic
These are just the most perfect little blossom cookies. Love all things chocolate and peanut butter.
My mom loves Peanut Butter. But she is a diabetes patient.
Just made these for a cookie exchange. So easy! I whipped seven dozen up in about two hours. And the kids loved helping with this one because it was so uncomplicated. They loved the taste too!
Great recipe. Use it all year long with the different types of kisses that come out. Favortie is the swirl with white chocolate.
Can you add baking powder or baking soda to the 3 ingredients to make them thicker?
Hi! I do not know how those ingredients would react in this recipe. The batter should be very thick. I hope that helps!
Hello! Would this be able to be in the fridge or freezer and brought out to room temp and still bake fine?
Yes! You should be able to do this!

I have made these many times and they disappear quickly! Kids love making them so it was a fun project with my nieces and nephews. They are very rich, so I make them smaller than my other cookies. They can be messy, so I use a miniature muffin pan and the small paper cup liners. It keeps the crumb trail off the floor and makes storage easier, especially if you are taking them with you for a party or get together. There are so many choices for a variety of versions so kids never get tired of them. And really, what DOESN'T go with peanut butter!
Thanks for your feedback. LOVE the tip for the mini muffin tin!
Hi there, thanks for the recipe! I was wondering whether I can still replicate a version of this with just regular unsalted butter and/or flour? Thanks!
Hi there! It sounds like you're looking for a more traditional peanut butter cookie. If so, check out https://www.dinner-mom.com/sunflower-seed-butter-cookies-chocolate-chips/ Leave out the chocolate chips in this recipe and instead top with a Hershey's kiss!
