Quick Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

My MIL Carla has recently gone gluten-free and has had a somewhat hard time adjusting to the ‘no-cake, no-cookies, no-bread’ lifestyle. But she found this recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies and I’m so glad she did! (Carla’s comment below recipe.)

Looks delicious, don’t they?

Good luck!

Carla’s comment:

I recently had to start eating gluten free and was wanting to find a recipe for cookies. I love peanut butter cookies and was very excited when I found a recipe online and it did not contain flour. I modified the original recipe and love the results. I did try making it with Stevia instead of white sugar. My son is diabetic and this woud be a good cookie for him to eat since it only has 7 carbs per cookie. He really liked both recipes…with Stevia and with white sugar. I preferred the one without Stevia. Also, I doubled the recipe and made about 48 cookies.
This recipe is a keeper and has a special place in my recipe file! Try it, you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
