Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (GF)

Posted on

These cookies are by far the simplest GF cookie I make. There’s no rolling out dough, no messing with multiple flours and only half a dozen ingredients. Even better, these cookies don’t taste gluten free. You know what I mean – that funky texture or taste you get from swapping out wheat flour for any one of the gluten free flour options. Even people who are on a non GF diet will find these cookies not just acceptable, but delicious.

This recipe is not really an original of mine. There are multiple versions all over the web (and I’m not surprised – these are too good not to share). There are different tweaks you can make – brown sugar vs. white sugar (or sweetener of your choice), crunchy peanut butter vs. smooth, semi-sweet chocolate chips vs. dark chocolate chips . . . you get the idea! This recipe is my favorite combination. Give it a try, I think you’ll love the result!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients (makes about 2 dozen cookies)

  • 1c crunchy peanut butter
  • 3/4c brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4c semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cooking Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
2. Mix the first five ingredients (you can do this by hand or in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment).
3. Stir in chocolate chips.
4. Roll a spoonful of dough (about 1-2 tablespoons of dough) into a ball in the palm of your hand. Place cookie dough balls onto a baking sheet. Either a non-stick baking sheet or a greased regular baking sheet should work just fine. 
5. Bake for 8 -12 minutes (watch for the bottom edge of the cookies to start to brown). Let the cookies sit on the sheet for a couple of minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack or plate (or eat).
6. Repeat with any remaining dough.
