Just in time for back to school, I have the perfect peanut butter cookie recipe!
Here’s the deal…my 11 year old and I finally gave up on making a really delicious peanut butter cookie using g-free flour.
We made so many.
We never loved any of them.
They were all a bit gritty.
And never quite got the right color.
So, we decided to skip the flour and make these super basic cookies instead.
Not only are these delicious (and g-free!), but they’re so easy that she can make them by herself without looking at a recipe. Who doesn’t love that?!
In our family, the start of the school year always means peanut butter everything…like these cookies to have as an afternoon snack with milk (or coffee for me!). They’re so good, y’all!Print
The easiest little peanut butter cookies for after school…that just so happen to be gluten-free!
- 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Lightly grease a cookie sheet or place parchment paper down. Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, beat together all of your ingredients with an electric mixer until creamy. Once the batter has been combined, shape the dough into walnut-sized balls and place them on your prepared baking sheet (not too close together). (We typically get about 18 cookies.)
- Next, take your fork and lightly press down on each cookie in two different directions to lightly flatten them.
- Once your cookies are flattened, time to pop them in the oven.
- Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool about 5 minutes before enjoying.
