Why are my peanut butter cookies crumbly?
When making a cookie recipe, it is important to properly measure the ingredients, especially the flour. Using too much flour can cause crumbly cookies. That’s one reason for loving this 4 ingredient peanut butter cookie recipe – it makes flourless cookies!
Even though the peanut butter cookies are flourless, they do have sugar. I haven’t tried making the recipe with Truvia yet, but that’s next on my list!
Because this recipe has no flour it can be a little stickier when pressing with a fork.
I’ve learned that pressing, then sliding the fork away works much better than trying to lift the fork off the cookie.
Sometimes I like to sprinkle a little sea salt on top before putting them in the oven to bake!
These peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips would make really great ice cream sandwiches.
