These flourless peanut butter blossoms are one of our favorite recipes. The cookie dough itself is made with only peanut butter, brown sugar, an egg, and vanilla extract. A simple, flourless dough for a delicious cookie.
Peanut butter cookies are our all-time favorite! Lee’s mom is a genie when it comes to making peanut butter cookies, ask anyone in the family. We make them all year round and around Christmas time, we stick a Hershey’s Kiss in the middle for a little extra love.
These flourless peanut butter cookies are an ode to Mama Kay’s flourless cookies. They are easy to whip together and taste amazing. If you like these cookies, you’ll have to try out our other flourless peanut butter cookies, peanut butter oatmeal cookies.
What is in Flourless Peanut Butter Blossoms?
These gluten-free peanut butter blossoms are made with peanut butter, brown sugar, 1 egg, and vanilla extract. The dough sits to hydrate and then you roll each ball in turbinado for sweetness and crunch. The Hershey Kiss is the last ingredient, don’t forget it!

Variations + Substitutions
There are few ingredients in these cookies, so there aren’t a ton of substitutions or variations. You can replace the peanut butter with a different type of nut butter, just remember the flavor will change based on what nut butter is used.
If you are short on Hershey Kisses you can fold chocolate chips or M&Ms into the cookies instead.
If you don’t love chocolate, skip the Hershey kisses altogether!
Tips for Flourless Peanut Butter Blossoms
- Be sure to let the cookie dough sit in the refrigerator to allow the flour to hydrate.
- These cookies are flourless so they will have a bit of a different texture compared to regular peanut butter blossoms.
- The Hershey kisses are added to the cookies and baked again for a few moments so the Hershey kisses melt into the cookie a bit.
- These cookies are excellent frozen for later.
Storage + Freezer Instructions
Let these cookies cool completely before storing them in an airtight container. Be sure that the Hershey Kisses have hardened completely before stacking the cookies or they may get smashed.
Freezing instructions: Once the cookies have cooled place them into a freezer-safe bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
