Author Notes

To me baking gluten-free is not about cooking without traditional flour but cooking with a variety of flours. I enjoy the challenge of thinking outside my flour canister when baking. —Ladystiles

  • Makes 2 dozen cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-natural chunky or smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped peanuts
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet with butter and set aside. In a mixer combine peanut butter, chopped peanuts and sugars until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and baking soda and mix for another 2 minutes. Roll into walnut sized balls (1 tablespoon of dough) and flatten with your palm. If you’d like, add a few chocolate pieces to the top of the cookies. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a baking sheet for two minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Mine spread out quite a bit, making these more like a crisp than a cookie. Still quite delicious, especially considering how easy they are to make. Used a smooth peanut butter this time but definitely think chunky would be the way to go.

These are good but mine look so much flatter than the picture

Holy cats! These are DELISH!
I snuck in 1/3 C of Scharfenberger semi-sweet baking chunks. Cooking time about 14 minutes.

I do have a question -- have you tried to substitute stevia for raw sugar?

I had this (or a very similar one) years ago. Somehow, I misplaced it and have been searching for it for months. Thanks so much! It's a great recipe. For those who can't eat peanut butter, soy "peanut' butter works well, too.

I was so surprised by the simplicity of this recipe yet how flavorful they were! I do not need to eat gluten free but these may become a regular healthier cookie treat for me. Very tasty.
