Meet the perfect gluten free peanut butter cookies: chewy, just the right sweetness, and full of dreamy peanut butter flavor in every bite.

I previously referred to myself as someone who did not like peanut butter cookies, but it turns out I just never had one that was this good!

I have had no less than 6 of these cookies today and can’t stop.

While I love a good gluten free monster cookie, this recipe is just plain simple delicious peanut butter cookie goodness.

They are pure perfection and I love the chewy texture!

Many classic peanut butter cookie recipes use sugar filled peanut butter paired with just as much white sugar.

That is way too much sweetness!

These cookies are perfectly sweet and made lower in calories and sugar without compromising in flavor!

How to make gluten free peanut butter cookies

First, add your ingredients to a large mixing bowl. You will need:

Creamy all natural peanut butter (the only ingredients should be peanuts and salt)

1 egg

light brown sugar

baking soda

vanilla extract

maple syrup

Start with a whisk, until the mixture becomes too thick to keep whisking.

Use a rubber spatula to finish mixing the dough until well combined. 

Roll into 16 balls and place them on a baking sheet.

Flatten tops slightly with a fork, then bake at 350 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the pan, then transfer to a cooling rack.

Store any leftovers in an airtight container for 2 – 3 days, if they last that long!

Ours lasted about 4 hours and they’re almost gone!
