These easy three ingredient peanut butter cookies are so tasty and delicious you won’t believe they are only 3 ingredients AND gluten-free. Too good to be true? Nope. It’s true. Try them for yourself!
These cookies are amongst the first my children every learned how to make. Children of most any age can manage 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, and an egg. These have been made numerous times over the years and are always a family favorite. Try using chunky peanut butter or almond butter in favor of the traditional creamy version. And go ahead and mix in chopped peanuts, m & m’s, or other small candies.
Eating gluten free, whether for Celiac’s or other reasons, can be difficult. But if you’re someone who is gluten-free, now is the best time. There are numerous gluten-free friendly foods, companies, restaurants, and even schools that cater to your dietary needs. You are able to walk into practically any food establishment and expect that they will be able to accommodate you.
The same thing is true of lactose intolerance. There are so many yummy options to replace milk, some are even better than the milk itself. Have you ever tried chocolate almond milk? Possibly the best thing ever.
That is not to say, by any means, that if you have an allergy you are lucky. But, there is definitely more variety and decent options now than there has been!
Well, these cookies are both dairy-free and gluten-free, for those who might have an allergy or intolerance to either. (If you have a peanut allergy though… stay away!)
These little cookies are going to be superheroes for you.
If you are someone who wants to keep your recipes as organic as possible, use organic peanuts from your local co-op and try a recipe for homemade peanut butter!
Tip: These cookies will likely seem a little doughy when you first take them out of the oven. Do not worry! Because of the lack of flour, these will be softer than the cookies you are used to making, but just as delicious.
