Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies
There is almost nothing better than gluten-free peanut butter cookies, especially when you get that craving for a quick and easy gluten-free dessert.
I don’t eat peanut butter that often, but when I do – you can rest assured that it will be in the form of a cookie!
My kids, however, practically live on peanut butter. And yet they still devour every crumb when I make these delicious gluten-free peanut butter cookies.
I also make beautiful low carb peanut butter cookies, so make sure to check those out as well!
Should You Refrigerate The Dough Before Baking These Peanut Butter Cookies?
You do NOT need to refrigerate the dough for these cookies.
Chilling dough in cookies keeps the cookies from spreading out too much. These cookies naturally keep their form, so you do not need to take the time to chill the dough!
Can You Use Natural Peanut Butter in Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies?
You sure can! I make these cookies with Adam’s Natural Peanut Butter as well as your everyday “Jiff” variety. Both turn out fantastic. I prefer to stay away from the sugary peanut butter, though, so I like to use natural peanut butter.
I even like to use the crunchy variety as well. This last batch, I used half crunchy and have smooth. It was perfect!
How Do You Store Peanut Butter Cookies?
The best way to store these delicious gluten free peanut butter cookies is to place them in an airtight container in the fridge.
You do want to keep them chilled.
When stored properly, they should last a good 3-4 days.
How to Make Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies
Are you ready? Let’s get to baking these delicious and peanut buttery cookies!
Gather those ingredients and let’s go!
First of all, you want to preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, add olive oil, butter and sweeteners. Using a hand beater, combine them well.
When well combined, add the egg and peanut butter and continue mixing.
In a separate medium bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients and mix well.
Then simply add your dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and continue beating with your hand beaters.
Your dough should be moist and slightly crumbly. No need to refrigerate the dough! WOOHOO!
Start rolling dough balls, about 1.5 inches each. This will make approximately 40 cookies, but it heavily depends on the size.
Now its time to give them the signature peanut butter cookie look!
Using a fork, make a criss-cross pattern. Press down gently on each cookie, then rotate the fork and press down lightly again.
Now its time to bake! Bake for about 12 minutes. They will be soft when you remove them from the oven. Let them sit on the baking sheet for 5-10 minutes to continue baking.
