Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

My boys love to help in the kitchen. This past week they wanted to make cookies. They had a difficult deciding what kind to make but relied on an old favorite of peanut butter cookies.

It’s been awhile since we made them because the last time we made them we weren’t gluten-free. This was as good a time as any to try converting the recipe.

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

I subbed regular white flour for a gluten-free mix, I like the Namaste brand. (Affiliate Code)

This recipe is nice because it isn’t picky, which make it great for hands on help from the kids. They love using the mixer and rolling out the balls of dough.

The cookies came out great. I did find that they were quicker to be on the dry side if baked too long with the gluten-free flour compared to the white flour.

However, my children didn’t notice and devoured them. So, it’s safe to say this recipe is kid approved.

      I would think they would work fine that way, Anna. They are a pretty forgiving cookie. You can play with the texture until you can form it into a ball.

    Saving this recipe! I don’t do a lot of gluten-free baking since the times I’ve tried cookies haven’t gone so well…but these look good!

    These look so great! I’ve been trying to eat more gluten free foods, and desserts are my weak spot. I think I may make these next week if I make it to the grocery store. Thanks so much for sharing this awesome recipe! Pinned! :)
