These easy to make; soft and chewy gluten-free peanut butter cookies have all the flavor, texture and goodness of a classic peanut butter cookie just without the wheat.
A delicious peanut buttery treat that’ll make you smile.
You’ll need just nine ingredients (salt included) easy, right. This recipe is also eggless, but no worries these gluten-free cookies are still moist, tender, soft and chewy.
This particular recipe came to us via Shad's mother, who got it from her mother and then was modified slightly by us.
On its own it's a wonderfully simple and easy peanut butter cookie recipe with a rich deep flavor from brown sugar.
We veganized it by adding a cup for cup gluten free flour (we like brands like King Arthur and Better Batter gluten-free flours) and the recipe holds up wonderful.
Are there gluten free peanut butters?
Yes, in peanut butter’s natural state it is gluten-free; however, a few processed store bought national brands may have wheat added. But you will have no problem at all finding big brands that make less processed variations with just peanuts, sugar and salt.
