I initially opted to make these cookies because I had everything on hand to toss a batch together while the oven was still hot from a pan of homemade cornbread—-and the fact that they were ‘gluten free’. I’ve read numerous gluten free articles and recipes over the past year but have not attempted many at all. I never have the special ingredients on hand!

This recipe was originally posted in Cooking Light, June 2014. The original recipe calls for 1?4 teaspoon salt; I don’t think this much salt is needed. I’d cut it out next time…although the recipe calls for you to use it to froth up the egg white!?! I didn’t…I had already tossed it in the mix! Thus I didn’t include the salt in the recipe below.

I would also suggest waiting until the cookies are cooled to eat them. They taste better when they are cooled! Gluten free peanut butter cookies go perfectly with afternoon coffee!

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup peanut butter (chunky or creamy which every you prefer)
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 1?4 cup brown sugar
  • 1?4 cup semisweet chocolate chips (mini-chips work best)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F
  2. Place egg white in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk until white is frothy.
  3. Add peanut butter, sugars and chocolate chips, stirring to combine.
  4. Divide dough into equal portions (about 1 tbsp each); arrange dough 2 inches apart on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  5. Gently press the top of each cookie with a fork; press the top of each cookie again to form a crisscross pattern, and flatten to a 2 inch diameter.
  6. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
