Three Ingredient Maple Peanut Cookies

Three ingredient maple peanut cookies that do exactly what they say on the tin: they're made with literally just three ingredients.

I've made plenty of three ingredient peanut butter cookies before, always using light muscovado sugar. It took following a few different recipes and experimenting with quantities myself to get a texture and flavour I was happy with: crunchy on the outside, a bit chewy on the inside, not too sweet, and packed full of crunchy peanuts.

But I recently bought some maple sugar to have with porridge, and discovered that it has a very similar texture to light muscovado sugar. And it turns out it's the perfect ingredient for making three ingredient maple peanut cookies.

The flavour of the sweet maple sugar goes so well with the salty peanut butter. Maple sugar is just maple syrup that's been cooked down until it crystallises into sugar, so the taste is like concentrated maple syrup.

Not only do these three ingredient peanut cookies use minimal ingredients, but they also take just minutes to mix together and bake. It's the perfect last-minute-snack recipe.

You can also watch me make these on my YouTube channel, Tashcakes:

Ready? Let's go.

(Makes 18–20 small cookies.)


275g crunchy peanut butter
180g maple sugar
1 egg


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a large baking tray with some nonstick baking paper.

2. Stir the peanut butter, maple sugar and egg together in a bowl.

3. Take a tablespoonful of your maple peanut cookie dough and roll into a ball in your hands. Place it on your baking tray and pat it down to flatten it out a bit (but not too much).

4. Repeat with the rest of your dough, leaving about 1–2cm of space between them.

5. Bake for 8–10 minutes, and leave to cool completely on a wire rack before eating.

Enjoy, and have fun.
