These Easy, Sexy, Gluten-Free Cookies Will Probably Get You Laid


We’ve all been there. It’s holiday time and you’re going to a party, and you’re a bit panicked because you forgot about the potluck or the cookie swap, but too proud to bring something prepared by the fine folks at the grocery store. Well, I’m here to save your face and probably get you laid with the easiest gluten-free cookie recipe on the planet!

With a magical threesome of ingredients and less than half an hour, you can sashay your way into that party with your head held high, brag about your mad-healthy cooking skills all night, and easily take a little cutie home with you for some safe and consensual holiday fun.

Here’s what you’re gonna need…

1 cup of creamy peanut (or other nut) butter

1 cup of granulated sugar, plus a bit extra for sprinkling

1 egg

That is it! Promise! There’s nothing else you need, except maybe a pinch of salt or a few dashes of cinnamon if you’re feeling frisky. These cookies are tasty and so easy to make even kids can manage a batch. As long as you don’t overcook them, or use that weird, raw nut butter with the oil on top, you’ll be golden. And did I mention they’re gluten-free?! OMG everybody will love you! Ready to bake?

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.


The magical threesome. Have faith! This is gonna work.

Place small scoops of dough 1 inch apart on a non-stick or greased cookie sheet. Mash down the blobs of dough with a fork dipped in sugar and sprinkle with extra sugar desired.


Gettin’ alllll sticky now…

Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until the tops look dry and the edges are just starting to brown. Remove cookies from oven, let cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes, then remove with a spatula to a cooling rack or plate.


And lookie there! Cookies for everyone.

When your party-going friends bite into these, there’s only one reaction you’ll ever get…


This recipe makes about 20 cookies, depending on how big your blobs are. They’re best eaten within a day, but if you want to keep some around for a few days in an airtight container, you won’t spit them out when the late night munchies attack. And since these ingredients are probably camping out in your pantry year-round, there’s no need to limit your consumption to the holidays.

Yay for cookies! Now, go get you some.
