Easy Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Thursday, February 02, 2012

This post has been promised since making these cookies for a Christmas party and is LONG overdue!  My apologies.

But, it's FINALLY here!! 

The best part about this recipe is that it's naturally gluten free and you likely already have the ingredients in your house.  Just thinking about these scruptious babies makes me want to go home and whip up a batch!  Did I mention you'll be done in less than an hour (from start to finish!)?  No joke!

Simple, Naturally Gluten Free Cookies
*adapted from Real Simple Magazine (December 2011)


  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Heat oven to 350° F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, sugars, eggs, baking soda, and salt until smooth.
  2. Shape the dough into balls (about 1 heaping tablespoon each) and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Using the tines of a fork, flatten each ball, creating a crisscross pattern.
  3. Bake, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until puffed and golden, 10 to 12 minutes (the cookies will deflate as they cool). Let cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
