Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies for Cookies for Kids Cancer

Share Button

My 10 year old son Coleman and his best friend Kollin hosted a Cookies for Cancer Bake Sale yesterday in our neighborhood.  I was so impressed with their efforts for such a good cause.  They were able to raise $63.72 for children’s cancer research.   They were so cute that anyone who drove by wanted to help them out and buy a cookie or two.  Although the bake sale is over, you can still be part of the fun and help in this fight to find a cure for childhood cancer.   Go here to exchange a virtual cookie with a friend and Glad will donate $1 to Cookies for Kid’s Cancer for each cookie sold, exchanged or given this month–up to $100,000!  Awesome, huh?! 

When we were at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital for my sons heart procedure I saw many little children that were fighting cancer.  It about broke my heart.  I hope that we can find a cure for that horrible disease soon!  I have been told that what is needed the most is funding for cancer research and that every dollar counts!  I hope you will take a moment to virtually exchange a cookie here, knowing that each time you do, Glad will donate $1 for such a worthy cause!

Here is one of the cookies we offered.  A super delicious, quick and easy recipe.  With only 4 ingredients it was the perfect cookie to make with 10 year old boys!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
submitted  by Melanie~The Sisters Cafe

1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Coarse sea salt


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and place racks in the upper and lower third of the oven.

In a medium bowl, mix the peanut butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until well combined. Spoon 1 tablespoon of mixture about 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten the mounds with the tines of a fork, making a crosshatch pattern on the cookies. Sprinkle coarse salt on top of the cookies.

Bake until golden around edges, about 10 minutes, switching the position of the pans halfway thorough baking. Transfer to racks to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough.

    As a mom of a teenage cancer survivor, I sincerely thank you for you and your son’s efforts to help a great cause. Childhood cancer research is severely underfunded and it’s efforts like this that will make a difference.

    what an inspiring post, Mel. When life is going smoothly it’s so easy to forget that there are many who struggle with illness in their family… this was a good reminder for me to be mindful of what I can do to help cancer research. THanks MEl!

    I wish I could say my son was a survivor but he isn’t. Childhood cancer stole his life and my heart was filled with joy to see other youths helping to fight the war against this disease. Lara nailed it when she stated how underfunded the number 1 disease killer of kids is. It’s people like you and your boys bringing awareness, and raising money, that will someday provide the cancer kids with a better chance of survival. Thank you!!!!!!
