maggie’s peanut butter cookies

gluten free, sugar free, peanut butter cookies.
These are Maggie’s cookies, but she won’t eat them.  She likes baking more than she likes eating baked goods!  I get requests from her to make a cake…. and we will.  And then she’ll have two bites and then be done… leaving an entire cake just sitting around asking to be eaten. Trouble.  She had a blast making these little peanut butter cookies: rolling the “dough” into balls, flattening them, and especially pressing the fork into the dough.  I had left the kitchen to grab something from somewhere, and when I cam back, she had prepared a bunch by her self. So cute.

Anyway, these are suuuper easy and delicious.  Unless you don’t like peanut butter, which apparently Maggie doesn’t!

  • 2 cups organic peanut butter, no sugar added
  • about 2 cups sweetener of your choice,  I used xylitol and only used about 1 1/2 cups.
  • 2 eggs
  • dash of vanilla
  • any other little goodies, chopped nuts, chocolate chips, mini M&Ms…!

preheat oven to 350° F, combine all ingredients, roll into small balls, flatten, imprint with a fork, bake for about 10 minutes until brown.  they will be soft when coming out of the oven, leave to cool on wire rack. i loosely covered them over night in cling-film and they were crunchy in the morning.  with a glass of almond milk, that’s a pretty awesome breakfast.

  1. That’s so interesting that it’s not the sweet treat that is enticing her to bake, but the process. I like your writing “voice” and your rhythm in this post. I can just picture it all. “I get requests from her to make a cake…. and we will. And then she’ll have two bites and then be done… leaving an entire cake just sitting around asking to be eaten. Trouble.” It’s lyrical and funny.

  2. I just made these cookies and oh my–so amazing!!! My husband and I both are so excited for “sweet” (without wheat) paleo-style recipes.
