Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I don’t follow a gluten-free diet or anything, but I was having a conversation the other day about delicious gluten-free peanut butter cookies. In the interest of using up my pantry items before the big move, I thought I would try out a recipe and use up the rest of the peanut butter hanging out in the cupboard. The flour stayed on the shelf, and the resulting cookies were ultra peanut buttery, chewy, and delicious! I tried very hard to keep my fingers out of the dough, it tasted like peanut butter cup filling. If you follow a gluten free diet or just want to make some cookies sans flour, give this recipe a try!

Makes 2 dozen

1 cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
1 bar of chocolate, roughly chopped (recommended: semi-sweet or dark)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or grease the pan. Combine the peanut butter, sugars, eggs, baking soda and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth. Fold in chocolate chunks. Spoon dough by tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheet. Partially flatten cookie rounds with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool cookies on the sheet for 5 minutes, before transferring them to a wire rack.
