Why yes, I am posting another peanut butter recipe. I strive for once a week. It’s not too much, I know it’s not, because y’all love them so much.

That’s why we get along so well.

Really, I could eat some version of a peanut butter dessert every single day. Which is funny, because I’m not a peanut butter sandwich gal, and if there is someone sneaking spoonfuls from the jar, it’s my husband, not me.

During our marathon baking session a few weeks ago, Jordan wanted to make peanut butter cookies, with Reese’s. How could I say no?

But I felt sort of weird just making peanut butter cookies. I mean, I have the best recipe already on the blog. Then I have this one, and this one, and these made with cookie dough.

So, yeah. I’ve got lots of peanut butter cookie recipes. But how could I say no to this face?

For this peanut butter cookie recipe, I decided to re-make one I did in the first year of the blog. It’s the easy peanut butter cookie recipe and I love it so much. There are so many variations around the internet. My friends Averie and Stephanie are two that have it. But it’s such a classic, I had to share it here again.

Because, if you’ve never had them, they seriously are the BEST peanut butter cookies. Everyone raves about them. All the time.

These are my go-to cookie recipe. Sure, I love a regular cookie recipe too. But these are so easy, you can have them in your mouth in less than 30 minutes, with only a couple dishes to wash.

What’s the secret? They’re made with only egg, sugar, peanut butter, and some leavening. (FYI, I’ve made them with and without baking soda, and I like these best.)

Because there is no flour in these cookies, the peanut butter flavor comes through in a big way. Use a good peanut butter, one you’d eat with a spoon. My favorite peanut butter is Skippy Naturals. We go through one of the super-sized Walmart jars every week and it’s the perfect peanut butter for these cookies since it’s so peanut buttery. Use what you love!

And then, well. Add Reese’s Pieces and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. They’re exponentially better that way.

These are the kind of cookie that, when you kids come home from school begging for cookies, you can say yes too because they’re so easy.

They’re the kind of cookie your kid can make, with only minimal supervision.

These are the cookies that Reese’s were made for!

Jordan’s Reese’s Overload Cookies

The ULTIMATE Reese’s Cookies – easy peanut butter cookies FILLED with tons of Reese’s peanut butter cups and Reese’s Pieces! AND they’re accidentally gluten-free!


1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup mini Reese’s Pieces
1 cup mini Reese’s peanut butter cups, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with Silpats or parchment paper.
  2. Mix peanut butter, egg, sugars, and baking soda in a large bowl. You can use a mixer, but it’s easy to do by hand. Once incorporated, stir in Reese’s Pieces and peanut butter cups.
  3. Scoop balls of cookie dough onto your prepared cookie sheets. We used a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop for this step. Use the tines of a fork to gently flatten each cookie.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes. Cool before removing from cookie sheets. Note: these cookies can be crumbly so be careful when picking them up or packing them in lunches.

  1. I haven’t made this pb cookie recipe in years! I remember a friend who’s husband was diagnosed with celiac needed gluten free, and she ALWAYS made these cookies. They truly are easy and delicious. And now you’ve gone and upped the PB ante. I LOVE IT.

  2. I LOVE these cookies! They might be my favorite pb cookies ever because the pb flavor is so strong 🙂 Love the added touches from Jordan. She’s a smart one!

  3. I DO love the flourless pb cookies-and you overloaded these with even more pb goooodness!!! Thank you Jordan, for helping your mama bring these to the blogosphere

  4. Great looking cookies. I bet Jordan’s touch helped make them so special.

  5. well now, if you say they are the best, who an I to argue…I will have to try this LOADED version

  6. I had a kids cookie cookbook and it had a very similar recipe. This was the first type of pb cookie I learned how to make and I would make them all the time, mostly because I didn’t have to have my mom help me get out the stand mixer!

  7. No flour???? Shut the front door! These look amazing! Almost like big scoops of ice cream! Yumm! And how fun that you baked with Jordan! I love it.

  8. I have done 2 peanut butter recipes this week and they are both sweets! One was tuesday and the next it tomorrow. LOL! I just realized this now…oops!

    We a peanut butter and chocolate freaks arounds so you know we will LOVE these!

  9. I love peanut butter cookies and Reese’s. I can’t believe there’s no flour!

  10. I’m pretty sure no one can say no to that face! Or these cookies:) Of course, if I had my way, we’d just have a world of peanut butter, so these look scrumptious! (I’ve always wanted to use that word . . . these fit!)

  11. I’m sold on anything with Reese’s. They are my favorite candy – I can’t even keep them in the house because I end up sneaking some at all hours of the day (and night). You are kinda blowing my mind that these don’t have any flour. Sometimes just knowing that there is going to be a faint, white flour coating all over the kitchen after baking is enough to make me not want to do it. Can’t wait to try these!!

  12. Your cookies are great and you cannot go wrong with this classic dough/base recipe. I have 2 versions…1 that uses half and half of white and brown sugar like you did (thanks for the link!) and then one of the most popular recipes on my entire site is my version that’s just 1 c brown, without any white. I also put that version in my cookbook. But I haven’t done it with Reese’s like you did. SMART thinking 🙂

  13. I’ve GOT to try these. I mean, with no flour, they’re practically a health food, right??

  14. I made these once with chocolate chips. Now they seem like nothing special compared to your Reese’s pieces and Reese’s cups. I guess I will just have to make some more 🙂

  15. One can never have TOO many peanut butter recipes. 🙂

  16. I love Jordan’s cookies! I can’t get enough peanut butter and I am loving the short list of ingredients! I think I’ll show this to my daughter, she’d love to try these!

  17. You can NEVER have too many peanut butter cookie recipes! 🙂 Way to go, Jordan! These look amazing 🙂

  18. Hmm no flour…SOLD! These look positively decadant and I think I’m in love. I can’t wait to make these!!!

  19. I love how there’s no flour in these cookies! Makes them so simple to make! YUM!

  20. Reese’s miniatures AND Reese’s pieces?? Jordan has completely stolen my heart! I can never buy either of those because (a) my guy hates them so (b) I eat the entire bag all by myself in less than 2 days. Not good… But SO good at the same time! 😉 So happy to see Jordan’s smiling face — I’ll bet she’ll bake a lot more with you in the next few months! (Better than doing homework, right?)

  21. You are welcome to post as many PB recipes as possible! I love peanut butter! 🙂 These sound delicious. I love how easy they are!

  22. WOW! Yummy! I CANNOT wait to try these!! Great job Jordan!

  23. These look awesome! I love peanut butter, but I always forget about making peanut butter cookies. I’m definitely trying these.

  24. I have always wanted to try this recipe (or the many variations of this recipe) floating out there. I just can’t get over how incredibly thick and chewy these cookies look without using any flour. It’s a peanut butter miracle! Don’t ever apologize for posting a PB recipe – I can’t get enough of them! Your photos are beautiful although my favourite is the one with your daughter at the end of the table. Adorable!

  25. As a peanut butter lover, these sound delicious!

  28. I am SO trying these cookies soon!! Love love love! 😉

  32. I always forget to comment on blogs after I try their recipes, but I pulled this one up to make it again. It is AMAZING!! I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. I already have a peanut butter cookie recipe that I love, and this one is so different. I mean, no flour? No butter? But a skeptic no more … LOVE! And the addition of the mini Reese’s cups & Reese’s Pieces put it over the edge. I’m not sure I’ll make another kind of peanut butter cookie again. No joke 🙂

  33. oh these make my heart sing….THANK YOU!

  35. The other day I was looking for a recipe I know I saw when I was reading about the brownies. My hubby loves maple nut candies. I could have sworn I saw a recipe on your blog but was unable to get back to it for some strange reason. Maybe I wasn’t entering it correctly? I would def like to try that recipe.

  44. Of all the cookies I have made in my lifetime…I haven’t really done peanutbutter (for no good reason); I made this batch a couple of hours ago and just tried one…O.M.G!! No need to look for any other recipe! These are the bomb! i was worried they wouldn’t hold together after reading your initial comments; but they are ok when moving them carefully. Will definitely be making them again. Thx for sharing!
