Crispy edges and chewy in the middle, these Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies are delicious! You will never know they are gluten free.
Since we have been on this gluten free journey, I have learned that I can take a lot of my favorite recipes and easily convert them to be gluten free. By simply using my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe and substituting in my favorite gluten free flour mix I was able to create a delicious treats!
- Gluten Free Flour. You can use my mix or purchase one at the store.
- Peanut Butter. I used chunky but you can also use creamy.
- Chocolate Chips. I use both semi sweet or milk chocolate. If you don’t want to use chocolate roll your balls of dough into sugar before baking.
I made the cookies on a day we were having company for dinner and they loved them! They never would have know they were gluten free if I hadn’t told them.
Can I Freeze Gluten Free Cookies?
These cookies freeze great. 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! You can freeze the dough using these directions or freeze the baked cookies.
