Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

GLuten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip CookiesOur gluten free journey continues.  Jim has been gluten free for a month now and is doing great.  Even though there are lots of gluten treats available out there I have not purchased too many because part of this gluten free journey for Jim has been to lose some weight.  I worried if I bought the gluten free cookies and other treats that would slow down the weight loss.  He has been so good about not having too many treats.  But once in a while a guy just needs a treat.  The other day he asked for a treat and I obliged.

I used my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe and just used my favorite gluten free flour mix instead of regular flour.  This mix does not disappoint. I used chunky peanut butter because that is what I had on hand but I normally use creamy.  Both are great. Of course I had to add in some chocolate chips too.  He had been such a good boy after all!

I made the cookies on a day we were having company for dinner.  They loved them too and wouldn’t have known they were gluten free if I hadn’t have told them.

These cookies are good – in fact they are more than good – they are awesome!

I froze half the batch so that we wouldn’t be tempted to eat them all.  Now whenever Jim needs a little treat he can grab a cookie out of the freezer!

    These look fabulous and I will be trying them soon. Two of my daughters are gluten sensitive and love cookies. Most of the gluten free cookies I’ve found in stores are LOADED with sugar, so we prefer to make stuff at home. I just may have to make these for them today!!

    I love the freezer idea. A whole batch of cookies is too much for us at one time. Haven’t had pb cookies in ages! Thank you for linking with See Ya in the Gumbo.
