Gluten-free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

26 Sep

The majority of gluten-free baked goods are “good” in name only.  My grandma and aunt suffer from celiac disease and so are always trying new dishes and desserts.  Most of the time I pass.  These have become one of my grandma’s staples, so, after tasting them many times, I finally had to get the recipe.  I don’t require a gluten-free diet and still choose to bake AND eat these.  My grandma’s only note on their preparation is to make sure you allow them to cool on the pan.  Without flour, they crumble easily, especially while warm.


  • 1 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Combine ingredients. Place in balls on a baking sheet.  Use the back of a fork to flatten slightly with a criss-cross pattern and bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes.  Allow to cool before taking them off the baking sheet.

Makes about 2 dozen.
