Our social media timelines have been flooded with people baking since the beginning of quarantine. Everything from bread to brownies and even cereal has been taking over our feed for the last two months, with people on TikTok now getting in on the action.
Specifically, this five-ingredient recipe has been going viral, after social media users found it to be a super-easy way to make delicious cookies without messing up, which leaves more time for eating. That's the kind of recipe we're after.
The recipe gained traction thanks to the @foodies TikTok account, which shared the recipe that calls for just five ingredients: One cup of light brown sugar, one cup of peanut butter, one egg, one teaspoon of baking soda, and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
The flourless recipe promises to be gooey on the inside, crispy on the outside, and with the perfect balance of salty and sweet, thanks to the peanut butter and chocolate chip combo.
Bake your cookies at 180 degrees Celsius for eight to ten minutes for the perfect quarantine snack. It literally could not be easier!
- 1 cup of peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- Half a cup of chocolate chips
As a rule of thumb, a cup of peanut butter is about 250g, a cup of sugar is about 200g, and half a cup of chocolate chips is around 90g.
- Mix all the ingredients together, and then divide into 12 equal balls.
- Bake on a greased or lined baking tray at 180 degrees Celsius for eight to ten minutes.
You're so welcome.
