Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cookies


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup white sugar or 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg


Cream the peanut butter and sugar in a bowl. Beat in the baking powder. Add the egg. Mix until it is all well combined. The dough will be sticky, so be prepared to get your hands messy.

Roll some dough into a ball. (How big? That depends on you. I have found, however, that the smaller these cookies are, the better they hold together). Roll the ball in white sugar.

Line a baking sheet, covered in parchment paper, with sugary balls of dough. Bake in the oven for about ten minutes. You will know the cookies are done when they feel coherent, but still a little soft. Take the tray out of the oven and let the cookies rest for at least five minutes. Afterwards, carefully transfer them to a cooling rack. After ten minutes or so, they will have hardened and be glistening with sugar.


These saved me when I couldn't have gluten and sugar for a while. There amazing! The texture and look of them actually makes you believe there's flour in them.
