Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

 

Question: Anyone addicted to peanut butter around here?

Answer: I am, boarder line obsessive.

I like it on my oats…

…OIAJ anyone?…

…in and swirled on top of my smoothies as a sauce…

…on top of my cereal to make them more satisfying…

…it’s also great smeared on rice cakes as a snack…

…I also like it in confectionary form too!

The one thing that I have never done with peanut butter is bake with it…until now.

*Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cup Cookies*

The funny thing is I hadn’t set out to make these gluten free. I was totally out of specialist flour to bake with and just didn’t want to make that trip to the shop. So, out of my shear laziness gluten free cookies were born. :)

Ingredients(gluten free, makes 12 cookies)

  • 1 cup of peanut butter (I used organic crunchy PB)
  • 1/3 cup of golden caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips

In a mixing bowl cream the sugar and the peanut butter together until well combined by hand, using a hand held mixer or a food processor. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips so that they become evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.

On a ready prepared baking tray form 1 tbsp size cookie dough balls placing them about 1 inch apart on the baking sheet. Flatten them slightly to form disc shapes.

Bake at gas mark 4/350 degrees for approximately 10 minutes. Baking time will vary depending on you oven. I found that 10 minutes was just enough and the cookies were golden around the edges and soft in the middle. Once cooked set them aside to cool.

Next: stand guard beside the cookie jar with your meanest face to ward off any incoming cookie monsters.

    Hahaha your nut butter collection looks like mine!!! I have sooo many kinds of nut butter. I’d say I’ve got at least 4 kinds of PB & co pb, plus 3 kids of homemade butter, and 2 kinds of organic/raw types at any moment. haha

    I’m cracking up at your nut butter collection, I’m actually quite jealous to be honest. And I like to eat my PB every which way! Out of the jar, over oats, on toast, the possibilities are endless!

    They look amazing!!!!
    I think I eat PB every single day, mostly on my breakfast! I love it!
    Quick question- where do you get your PB&Co nut butter from? I live in the UK and can’t really afford to make purchases on iHerb at the moment…

    Those look amazing! :-D I’m a nut butter addict too – i love it on toast with a sliced banana, or smeared onto a banana as a snack. I haven’t got quite as many as you though, lol! :-P Love the picture of the nut butter swirled into a smoothie, it’s so pretty! :-) xyx
