Day 40: Gluten Free Chunky Peanut Butter Cookies

I am getting a lot of requests to pass along gluten free cookie recipes. The only problem, I don't know a thing about baking gluten free. I have tried to use basic gluten free baking mix and still haven't found one that works well for cookies. 

I have two friends that both are much more experienced in baking gluten free. I have been picking their brains, and am hoping to have them guest blog soon.

One of the few successes I had were these Chunky Peanut Butter Cookies. They were so good! Moist, creamy, nutty and delicious!

Chunky Peanut Butter Cookies (Gluten Free)



2 cups of natural chunky peanut butter
1 cup of sugar
2 eggs (slightly beaten)
1/4 cup sugar to roll dough in

Mix peanut butter, sugar and eggs together.


Refrigerate for an hour


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough into a ball then roll in sugar. Place on the cookie sheet. Using a fork make criss cross pattern.




Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet, move to a cooling rack to cool completely.


I baked one dozen of these and decided to freeze the rest of the dough. When freezing your cookie dough make sure you put it in a sturdy container.


And LABEL (I love my label maker)!!
