Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies!

Looking for Dairy free Gluten Free Baked Goodies? Look no further. This is my highly recommended recipe that taste fabulicious, and is quite a healthy recipe too!Processed with Rookie

I must say that I am not a big cookie fan but THIS recipe made me a cookie Monster!

I made this because my friend is lactose and wheat intolerant. It could be difficult to find delicious baked goodies / recipes that is wheat and dairy free. It is best to make use of naturally wheat free/ dairy free ingredients like nuts, rice, soy, quinoa, eggs….. any many more.

And thankfully, the gluten free (GF) flour is now available all around supermarkets, and in fact supermarkets now started making their own GF flours that cost much less Cha-Ching 🙂

Peanut Butter Cookies

Prep time 10 mins .  Cook time 8 mins .  Total time 18 mins
Serve 14-16 Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter (I used ½ peanut butter and ½ almond butter)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ⅔ cup oat/ gluten free flour (use 1 cup for chewy cookies cookies)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup water (I used ¼ cup almond milk)

Methods

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the peanut butter and brown sugar for 1 minute. Add in the vanilla extract and beat for another 30 seconds.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, mix the dry ingredients together (oat flour, baking soda, and salt).
  4. While beating the peanut butter mixture, slowly add in the gluten free flour mixture and beat until a crumby dough forms. Add in the almond milk and continue to beat until distributed. Do not over mix.
  5. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  6. Roll the dough into balls (about 1½ – 2 tablespoons per cookie), drop on parchment paper, and flatten with a fork one way and then the other to create a crisscross pattern.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until just starting to turn golden on edges (they bake FAST so watch them carefully).
  8. Let cool completely and enjoy !

You can store cookies an airtight container to keep them soft and chewy.

What does it taste/look like?

– Soft and tender peanut butter cookies ! So Delicious that I prefer these cookies over non-gluten free cookies (which often taste like butter and dough)
– Melts in your mouth
– Brown sugar gives extra flavour and a different sweetness that matches so well with peanut butter!
– Hold it’s shape really well – does not crumble into bits and pieces
– Blissful Basil suggest serving with cold milk 🙂
