Normally, I am a big fan of gluten free flours and flour blends. They’re easy to use, and I’m able to use them to make all sorts of things that my son with Celiac disease loves to eat. But it’s never a bad idea to keep a flourless recipe or two in your back pocket, right? Whether you run out of your favorite gluten free flour blend, or you’re just looking for a change of pace, a good flourless recipe is a convenient and simple solution.
I came across these flourless peanut butter cookies from Gluten-Free Girl a few years ago. The first time I made them, I knew that this was a recipe I was going to hang on to! Not only did Kell love them (my son with Celiac disease,) but I probably enjoyed them just as much as he did!
These peanut butter cookies turn out beautifully and taste SO good! Honestly, you won’t miss the flour (or gluten free flour) one bit. The cookies are so tender that they just melt in your mouth, and they go wonderfully with a cold glass of milk. I can never seem to stop myself from having 3 (or 4…)
Here’s the recipe, so that you can enjoy these super simple peanut butter-y delights too!
Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies
adapted from Gluten-Free Girl
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 egg
Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl, and mix well with a spoon or fork.
Portion the dough out into balls, and arrange them on a cookie sheet. If you want, you can roll each dough ball in sugar to give it a shimmery sweet coating. Whatever floats your boat!
Use a fork to slightly flatten each dough ball, then bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Let cool, and enjoy!
