Since I read Wheat Belly and threw out all my wheat I haven't had a decent cookie. One time I made a very dense almond flour cookie and another time ate a very chalky chocolate chip cookie but neither deserved the title "Cookie". I have now found an amazing cookie that doesn't need any flour and I'll be making it again soon since my first batch didn't last 24 hours.
|Only Five Simple Ingredients|
Grain Free Peanut Butter Cookies
adapted from The Gluten Free Table
1 cup natural creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and place the oven rack in the center position. Combine the ingredients in a medium bowl and stir well with a wooden spoon until smooth. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of dough into your hands and roll into a ball. Place the balls on ungreased cookie sheets with 1 inch of space between each one. Use a fork on each cookie ball to press down a cross-hatch pattern. I put 12 cookies on each sheet for a grand total of 24 cookies. OK, maybe a bit less since I indulged in taste testing the dough (FYI it was yummy). Bake each sheet about 10 minutes until the cookies have risen and are lightly golden. Allow them to cool before removing from the baking sheet.
These peanut butter cookies were seriously delicious and I didn't miss "regular" cookies at all!
