Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Okay, so I have been sick the past couple of days.  Head cold.  I have been craving sweets since Wednesday.

So, we have peanut butter, sugar and eggs…so I decided to make cookies.

A dear friend who used to come from Spring Hill college for weekends and breaks had a gluten allergy.  She brought this recipe, and I eventually found it.


  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup creamy unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or splat-mat.

Beat together egg, sugar, baking soda and vanilla in a standing mixer with the paddle attachment or with a hand-held mixer. Beat in the peanut butter. Stir in chocolate chips if using.Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet, pressing lightly with the back of a fork. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly set. Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
