These gluten free peanut butter cookies can be made with ingredients in your pantry. Nothing fancy here!
I have literally a ton of peanut butter. Peanut butter is one of those foods that my family cannot go without and it is incredibly nutritious.
Over the years, numerous studies have shown that people who regularly include nuts or peanut butter in their diets are less likely to develop heart disease or type 2 diabetes than those who rarely eat nuts.
Now that I have convinced you to love peanut butter – what about these cookies? I did add sugar but these are cookies.
I have also made peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal bars for those who want to add some chocolate to their peanut butter (me!).
You can add chocolate chips to these cookies as well.
To ensure these are gluten free – you must buy gluten free oats. Also you want to buy a peanut butter that is natural (only ground peanuts without added sugar or oil). Check out What is the healthiest peanut butter? if you need some input.
This recipe is SO easy. One bowl, no mixer, and you are DONE. Anyone – even those who feel they can’t bake – will be able to make these.
They are not a decadent cookie – but one you could pack for a quick snack instead of a packaged bar. These will also freeze well.
Want to make them more interesting? Add coconut, chopped peanuts, raisins, cinnamon, a dash of flaked salt for the top…..
I like them plain because I want to not eat too many of them in one sitting. Sometimes boring is a good thing.
