Peanut Butter Cookies with a snap!

When I want a Peanut Butter Cookie, I want one that tastes like peanut butter, has a snap to it and allows the flavor to dance in my mouth. This Peanut Butter cookie is not like the cookies of old as it no longer is bogged down with a ton of flours, fats, and binders that are unnecessary. Since peanut butter is a fat and protein, I have found we can eliminate the traditional butter and added structure from regular flour which gives you a well balanced peanut butter taste and excellent crumb. The primary ingredient in this cookie is peanut butter, imagine that! I have tested and toyed around with this recipe for a while now and found that the flourless cookie lacks just a bit of structure and the old fashioned recipe lacks the full taste of peanut butter. This is the best of both worlds and is gluten free as an added bonus. Enjoy!

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 2 1/2 dozen


  • 2 cups Chunky Peanut Butter
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla, *see recipe for homemade vanilla
  • 1/4 cup Amaranth Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Soda
  1. Mix peanut butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a bowl well.
  2. Blend flour and baking soda in a separate bowl, sprinkle over peanut butter mixture and mix well
  3. Scoop our 1 inch balls onto silicon mat on your cookie sheet, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes... until browned on edges.
  4. **CAUTION! As this is primarily a nut mixture, the cookies can go from under done to over done quickly, so these cookies need watched as they get close to the end of their cooking time.
  5. Remove from sheet pan while warm to cool on a rack. This will assist in the cookies having a quality snap and lessens breakage.
