Gluten-Free No Flour Peanut Butter Cookies

Gluten-Free No Flour Peanut Butter Cookies

I found this recipe at Nurturing Naturally. There are so many things I love about this recipe. It only has 5 ingredients. They are mostly equal parts so I only need one measuring cup. It is gluten free but does not use an expensive substitute that I don't have access to in Korea. They only take a few minutes to mix together and bake in the oven. They are very thick and delicious. You will not miss the flour. Chris said he would want me to make these even if we were not on a gluten free diet.

1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg beaten
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Measure out the brown sugar first. Rinse the cup slightly. To keep your peanut butter from sticking to the measuring cup you can add a small amount of olive oil to the cup to grease it up and the peanut butter will come right out. Add the egg and baking soda, mix everything together. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Place the cookie dough onto the cookie sheet. Press down the cookies with a fork. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. They take 14 minutes in my oven. Let cool and serve with a large glass of milk. They will be really soft when the first come out of the oven but they will harden as they cool.
