Hello! I hope you’re feeling snack-y today because you have got to try these 4 ingredient peanut butter chocolate chip cookies!

I originally shared this recipe back in 2015. But, I thought since you’ve got the kids at home right now, it would be a good time to update the recipe and share it again.

I’m sure they’re begging for a snack every 5 minutes and you’re probably looking for something new to try.

Eating the same old snack day after day just doesn’t cut it with the kiddos!

So, without further blabber – onto the original post…


Who doesn’t love a good, chocolate chip cookie? Add some peanut butter and quite possibly, you’ve got the best cookie on Earth!

They make a great snack to add to the kids (and husband’s) lunch box.

They’re simple to pack in a zipper bag or small container.

And they taste great all day long!

These cookies are my husband’s absolute favorite but, the kids and I love them, too.

Only I don’t just love them because they are delicious…

The real reason I love these cookies is because they are SO easy to make and the recipe only requires 4 ingredients…all of which I usually have on hand.

Plus, you can mix them all up in just 1 bowl – no extra dishes!

Try them today – you have time!

I promise…

They take less than 20 minutes to make – from start to finish!

Here’s the recipe…
