Martha’s Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Do you ever get this message on Pinterest, “Psst, it looks like you’ve already pinned that”?

Well, it happens to me..a lot. Seen as though I apparently have a memory like a sieve, so when I pinned these cookies about 5 times I finally caught on that I should give them at try.

They are by far the simplest, healthiest and cheapest g-free cookies I’ve ever had, making them totally Boxwood approved!

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 egg

3/4 c sugar

1 c creamy peanut butter

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 c chocolate chips

1/2 c roasted salted peanuts (optional)



Combine slightly beaten egg with sugar, peanut butter, baking soda and salt. When blended well stir in chocolate chips and peanuts if desired. Shape into small domes (I used an ice cream scoop) and bake at 350 for 12 mins. Makes about a dozen cookies.

I tried the recipe with crunchy peanut butter and it didn’t work as well. I think the texture of creamy really helps hold the cookie together. Martha also recommends to rotate your cookie tray at 6 mins for equal heat distribution.

If you live gluten-free or not, you have to give these simple cookies a try. Full disclosure: they make your home smell delicious!

    Hi. Those look great! I tried a few gluten-free peanut butter cookie recipes a while back and I really liked this one, so I thought I’d pass it along in case you want to try another: :)

    These are so good! I make them all the time. I use 100% natural peanut butter. You have to try these: I made them last night, and they are excellent also.
