GF Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe is probably the easiest gluten-free cookie you could make, and arguably the best! In my book you just can't beat peanut butter and chocolate! Remember the old Reese's Peanut Butter Cup commercial from the 70's "your peanut butter got into my chocolate! You got chocolate in my peanut butter!, Mmm, delicious! (que announcer) Two great tastes that taste great together!" -haha I love it!

I think I first got this recipe from the G.I.G. (Gluten Intolerance Group) I was a part of when I lived in Atlanta. It's not intimidating for my non-celiac relatives to make these for me when I visit because there's no messing with Gluten-free flours, (a daunting prospect for even the most accommodating friend or relative!)

I prefer to use less chocolate chips and two eggs, but I'll post the recipe as I originally received it. As you can see from the picture, my 3 year old is a huge fan of these!

GF Peanut Butter Cookies

That recipe is definitely simple and quick to make, which is a plus. I've had various versions of that type of flourless PB cookie before, and though it is decent, I definitely prefer ones with some flours in them.

In my book, I have a PB cookie that I really think is "the best", though I am perhaps not the best independent judge of that :) I use a combo of flours, including some Buckwheat, and it really makes for a tasty PB cookie with more body to it than the flourless ones, and basically like what I grew up with before being wheat-free/GF.

Good post Jeff.

I love naturally gluten-free foods too. However, I was not happy until I started creating some of my favorite foods with gf flours. I really wouldn't consider them to be substitutes or substandard. I really think you can cook well with gf flours.
I am looking forward to reading your blog. It looks like you are going to have lots of yummy recipes!
