Recipe: Quick and Easy Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies


I wanted to bake, the boyfriend wanted peanut butter cookies – so peanut butter cookies is what he got. I think these have to be the best peanut butter cookies I have ever made. I normally find peanut butter cookies kind of dry, but not these. I really like that there is no butter or flour in them, I am not against either of those foods – but it just seems like useless ingredients after eating these. There were also so quick and easy, I have a feeling I will be making these again and again. The calories in these cookies are not too bad either, just don’t make them too big or eat too many!
