Low-carb, Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

pb cookies

It’s been a challenge (I could think of other, more descriptive words!)  to modify my favorite recipes to accommodate my gluten allergy.  These peanut butter cookies were surprisingly easy, and the addition of a little bit of coconut flour really improved the consistency.

JP is always my culinary litmus test to determine if a modified recipe is as good or even better than the real thing.  These cookies, passed muster- -and then some.  I served them with ice cold milk— he was stoked!

Note: The cookies will be very soft when they first come out of the oven– so let them cool on a wire rack and they’ll harden a bit.

My BFF college roomie and her kiddos made these last weekend– the testimonial is in her daughter Bella’s expression!  (Look how beautiful she is!!  Aunt Parker is so proud!!)
