Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies–Gluten free Cookie Recipes


I never liked the peanut butter, until I was forced to have a tablespoon of it with two slices of whole wheat bread for my breakfast during my second pregnancy, when I had Gestational Diabetes Sad smile.   Later on, when I started my research with other low carb food ( which still continues Smile), the PB jars stay as such in the pantry and just before the expiry date I make these flourless peanut butter cookies. It all started 2yrs ago, when I found this recipe in The Gourmet Cookbook. I always had thoughts about substituting brown sugar instead of white sugar, which I tried only this time.

 This recipe is linked to Sadhana’s blog event Wholesome Desserts-With No Refined Flours nor Refined Sugars, which originated at cookeatdelicious. This is the recipe that came in my mind when I came across the event. The words NO refined flours and Refined sugars- that is all I read and missed the word Wholesome dessert( While shopping, if I see product priced $17.99, I consistently miss the number 1 or the first or say the important digit Winking smile, and always my DH points that digit to me ). That is what has happened here also Hot smile. I Looked into the words clearly only just before linking the event and mailed Sadhana. She replied back saying that it is fine Smile. So, the recipe goes straight there Open-mouthed smile.
1 cup Crunchy or Creamy Peanut Butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 larger egg (lightly beaten)
1 tsp. baking soda
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit. Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2. Cream the peanut butter and light brown sugar until pale for about 2 minutes, using a electric hand mixer.
3.Add the egg and baking soda and beat until well incorporated.
4. Make small balls and place it on the lined  baking sheet. Using the fork, flatten and make crosshatch pattern.
5. Bake for about 10 minutes ( when they turn golden brown, slightly browned on the sides )or until done. They will be soft, but hardens once they are cooled down.
  • The original recipe calls for 1 cup of regular sugar, which I always cut it down to somewhere between 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup. And, I did the same this time with brown sugar too.
  • This recipe can be considered to be a perfect gluten free recipe while using gluten free peanut butter.
