Reese’s Pieces Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

It is the end of the school year and I am sure the kids are getting anxious for summer vacation. To help them survive the end of the year, make them a special after school treat, Reese’s Pieces Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies. Peanut butter lovers will go crazy for these cookies.

Reese's Pieces Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

The peanut butter cookies are soft and melt in your mouth. Plus, they are dotted with Reese’s Pieces candies. I love the crunch and extra peanut butter kick the Reese’s Pieces add. These peanut butter cookies are simple to make, they don’t even require flour. I know it may seem weird making cookies without flour, but trust me on this one. These peanut butter cookies are heavenly!

So make the kiddos a special after school snack. I am sure they will love coming home to a plate of Reese’s Pieces Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies and a glass of cold milk. And if you eat them all before the kids get home, I won’t tell. It will be our little secret:) Enjoy!

Reese’s Pieces Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup Reese’s Pieces candy

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
2. Mix the peanut butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth.
3. Add in the egg and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
4. Stir in the salt, baking soda, and Reese’s Pieces candy.
5. Spoon dough into balls, about 1 Tablespoon of dough for each cookie. Place them on the baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Lightly flatten dough balls with the palm of your hand.
6. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are slightly golden brown around the edges. The cookies will still be soft. They will set up while cooling.  Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies

  1. I made these and they are a huge hit!!! I’m gluten free and dairy free. And I can’t eat chocolate. So I thought these would be a good idea. And they were!!! Going to continue to make them.

  2. These were great. My mom’s recently on a gluten-free diet and I made these (with chocolate and pb chips since I didn’t have Reeses) They were soft with a little crispiness–perfect! And the dough froze well. I just popped them in the toaster at 350 for about 12 minutes.

  3. These are awesome. I’ve made them twice with the “natural” peanut butter (peanuts, salt) but I did drain the oil from the top of the jar (pet peeve/OCD habit of mine?) They turned out perfect – chewy and delicious! The dough-to-Reese’s ratio seems a little wonky and the dough can seem a little dry, but it does work and the cookies do stay together if you make sure all of them are well formed before sticking them in the oven. Thanks for posting – have been gluten intolerant for almost three years and this is the best grain-free junk food recipe I’ve found.

  4. I just made these with a an all natural peanut butter and they didn’t turn out at all. Seriously, at all. I’ve even read through the directions again to make sure I did them right. Do you have to use the regular peanut butter like Jif or Skippy or something??

  5. i have used a similar recipe before ESP cookies (eggs, sugar, peanut butter) but i will try these with reeses, good for gluten free eaters!

  6. These cookies sounds great! My son is allergic to nuts– would Soynut butter(which is tree nut/peanut free) work as a reslacement for the PB?? and I was thinking I could use mini MM’s inplace of the Reese’s pieces. I appreciate you feedback! Thanks-

  7. You must know me well, cuz’ peanut butter cookies are my favorite. AND you just out did yourself by adding the reese’s pieces!!! Yum.

  8. These look great! My mom has Celiac disease – so no flour allowed. I will make these for her but maybe use M&M’s instead. Peanut butter & chocolate, mmmmm!
