Recipes for Snacks for Kids: Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies


  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 cups peanut butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg


  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Drop scoops of dough on a cookie tray
  3. I LOVE this little gadget from pampered chef. You can only pick up so much dough and each cookie turns out almost exactly the same size. You can put cookie dough on a tray with only one hand, no scraping one spoon with the another spoon. This tool is also handy for scraping the leftovers from the bowl.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes at 350.
  6. A child may need help putting the cookie tray in and or taking the cooking tray out of the oven.
  7. If you like, you may decorate and add a bit of chocolate or cacao nibs on the top of each cookie. Do this while the cookies are hot so they can be slightly secured into the dough.
  8. Variations: If you are allergic to nuts then try sun (sunflower seed) butter or almond butter. The tops of the cookies could also be decorated with chopped nuts (seeds or almonds).
