Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Updated on September 18, 2013

Easy flourless peanut butter cookie recipe!

One of the few childhood memories I have of my mother is baking peanut butter cookies with her. She would mix up the dough and then I would roll it into little balls. I can still remember how careful I was when I would push the fork tines down to flatten each cookie. I treasure those memories.

Because of that, I'm making new memories with my own daughter. Now it's my turn to mix up the dough and let her roll it into little balls. And I love to watch as she concentrates on carefully pushing the fork tines down on each one!

This is a very easy recipe to remember. It just takes 2 of everything!

  • Prep time: 10 min
  • Cook time: 50 min
  • Ready in: 1 hour
  • Yields: Around 5 dozen cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups smooth gluten free peanut butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp baking soda
  • 1/2 bag of peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. 1. Mix the peanut butter, brown sugar, eggs and baking soda.
  3. 2. Mix in the peanut butter chips.
  4. 3. Roll cookie dough into balls (using a tablespoon) and roll in sugar.
  5. 4. Place sugared dough balls onto an ungreased baking sheet and flatten with fork tines.
  6. 5. Bake 10-12 minutes until they are golden brown.
  7. 6. Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes (this is important!)
  8. 7. Move them to a wire rack and let cool completely.

It's very important to let them cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving to the wire rack. If you try to move them any sooner, they will fall apart!

Once you move them to the wire rack, go ahead and try them. They taste delicious still warm from the oven!

You can also do chocolate peanut butter cookies

After mixing your dough, roll it into 1" to 1 1/2" balls and then roll them in sugar. Place them on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart and bake 10-12 minutes. When you take them out of the oven, immediately press an unwrapped Hershey's Kiss chocolate candy into each cookie. Wait 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. Talk about yummy!

For those times when you're hungry for a cookie but just can't eat one.

A Great Cookie Tip!

When you store your cookies, add a piece of bread to your jar (and keep the lid on tight!). It will keep them moist and yummy! If you notice the bread get hard (it'll take a couple days for that to happen), just replace it with a new one.
