Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was in need of a dessert for my family’s Labor Day get together and due to time and diet constraints, it had to satisfy three requirements: quick and easy, gluten free and few ingredients. These gluten free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies were the perfect fit–contains no flour, took about 20 minutes to make and I already had all the ingredients in my house.

                      

I anticipated taking better photographs after my family left, but none of the cookies made it that long! I suppose that speaks for itself, so here’s the recipe:

(Makes about 24, depends on how big you make your cookies!)

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or more, however many you want!)
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Combine all ingredients except for the chocolate chips and mix until well blended. I used a hand mixer and it only took about a minute or two for the mixture to become smooth.
  3. Add in the chocolate chips. I stirred them in with a huge spoon.
  4. Drop rounded balls of mixture on the cookie sheets a couple inches apart. I made the balls about an inch in diameter. Make sure you don’t flatten them down!
  5. Bake 10 minutes or until they’re golden and slightly cracked. They’ll be really soft so don’t remove them from the cookie sheet until they’re cool enough to touch.
  6. Devour!
