Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies {Gluten Free}

Cookie

I finally found a gluten free chocolate chip cookie that I really really like! Yay!  Sometimes a girl just needs a COOKIE.  Know what I mean?  It is also a good feeling to be able to still enjoy but know that this is a healthier option.  Sweetened with maple syrup, this cookie is free from the refined sugar that we all need to stay away from. Remember, it is still sugar so even though you can enjoy guilt free, you probably shouldn’t eat half a dozen all at once 😉 But seriously, peanut butter & chocolate?!?! DELICIOUS! (Try my healthier peanut butter cup recipe here)

My personal opinion is that these are best eaten right out of the oven or straight from the freezer. Oh yum!

Option: Add coconut or walnuts for a different variety!

*To make these dairy free: use coconut oil in place of butter and Enjoy Life Chocolate Mini Chips .

*Use gluten free oats to guarantee there is no gluten present.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper (if you don't have parchment paper, lightly grease the baking sheets).
  2. Pour the peanut butter and maple syrup mixture into a mixing bowl. Add the melted butter and whisk until the mixture is well blended.
  3. Use your whisk to beat in the egg, scraping down the side of the bowl once it's incorporated, then whisk in the vanilla, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  4. Switch to a big spoon and stir in the ground oats, rolled oats and chocolate chips until they are evenly combined. Drop the dough by the tablespoon onto your prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake the cookies about 12 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool completely on the pans.
