  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Position rack in middle of oven; preheat to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Whisk egg and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in peanut butter, brown sugar and chocolate chips until combined. Place slightly rounded tablespoons of dough about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  2. Use a fork to flatten each cookie to a 1¾-inch diameter by gently pressing in a crisscross pattern. Bake the cookies one sheet at a time until just set, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 20 minutes. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
  • Equipment: Parchment paper
  • To make ahead: Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

Forget 3 ingredient chocolate chip cookies -- these 5 ingredient ones are just as easy AND they have chocolate chips! They'd be perfect for a cookie swap, especially because they're gluten-free.
