Gluten Free Peanut-Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten free peanut-butter chocolate chip cookies|’t be scared off by the term here “gluten free” these cookies are seriously good and they happen to be gluten free if you are needing to cut out the gluten in your diet.  In case you didn’t know gluten is found in wheat products or all purpose flour and many people are allergic to it.  If you are allergic to gluten then it can or usually does cause stomach or intestine trouble. Anyway, I made a similar cookie recipe for my mom when she was watching her gluten intake and I wanted to make the recipe again but couldn’t find it.  I remembered my friend Lisa over at Parsley Sage & Sweet posted a recipe awhile back. Turns out Lisa adapted her recipe from Sweetie Petitti but Lisa made hers over the top with a luscious cinnamon cream filling sandwiched between the cookies. I didn’t have the time for the cream filling and justed wanted the cookies so I made her recipe only using crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy and less chocolate chips.  The cookies were amazing and peanut-buttery good, we loved them!  These cookies are really simple to make and only make about 16-17 cookies which is perfect for a craving, you will be in and out of the kitchen in no time.  If you have a large family they might be a little upset that this recipe only makes 16 cookies so in that case you should probably double the recipe. I hope you try these cookies out soon and just don’t mention to your family or friends they are gluten free and they will never know, I promise :).

Love these cookies, Suzanne! With no flour, they are sure to have an intense PB flavor, and that’s always a good thing!

I have not made anything that is gluten free yet. However these cookies look simple and tasty. Can’t believe there is no flour in these. I bet they did not last long in your house! 🙂

Oh fun! Something gluten free. Like you said, there’s really nothing to be afraid of in these cookies. They’re just flourless, making them the perfect GF cookie for a non-GF eating person to make their GF friends. Nice! 🙂

That said, I’ve never actually made flourless cookies. Kind of crazy since I do half GF stuff (which I just do because almond flour is yummy and not because I need GF goodies).

These look lovely! Nice job.
