By Eleni Louca

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe makes approximately 2 dozen cookies! First, be sure to preheat your oven to 350ºF.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 jar natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar


In a small bowl, combine the ingredients until well combined. Roll small balls of dough, placing them spaced out on a prepared baking tray. Mark the cookies by pressing a fork down on them. Bake for 8 minutes in a preheated oven. Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes before gently placing the cookies with a spatula on a cooling rack. 


  • Pacing cookies with on a cooling rack ensures that your cookies wont absorb moisture that the heat gives out
  • Add strawberry jam on one cookie and close it like a sandwich with another
  • If you would like to, you could also make your own peanut butter! (See below recipe).
