Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Pilot made some delicious gluten-free peanut butter cookies over the weekend. They are wonderful. Hard to believe something without wheat could taste so good.

Here is the recipe, in case you are interested.

  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (optional)  Our cookies did not have chocolate chips.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Beat together egg, sugar, baking soda and vanilla with a mixer. Beat in the peanut butter. Stir in chocolate chips if using.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto baking sheet, pressing lightly with the back of a fork. (Pilot dipped the fork in sugar, before he pressed it into the cookie dough.)  Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly set. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Pilot thinks he might use brown sugar instead of white sugar the next time. I would like to substitute chunky peanut butter instead of creamy.

This recipe made about 2 dozen three inch cookies.

Let me know if you make the cookies.  I think you’ll agree, they are rather tasty.

I wish you well.
