Peanut Butter Cookies-gluten free



I love peanut butter-especially in cookies. I lucked up the other day and found this yummy recipe for gluten free and sugar free cookies. I have to say they are absolutely delicious!

1/2 cup butter, room temp.
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup xylitol
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup peanut flour (I used almond flour)
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp coconut flour
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350.
In a small bowl add coconut flour, peanut flour, baking soda and salt. In a mixer cream butter and peanut butter. Add xylitol and cream until fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time. Add vanilla. Slowly pour in flour mixture. Mix until just combined on low. Then on med/high until smooth.
*Optional-refrigerate to make firmer.
Line cookie sheet. Scoop 1 Tbsp of mix. Press with fork. Bake 7-9 min. Enjoy!

Another good recipe is:

1 cup of peanut butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of white sugar
1 tsp of vanilla
1 egg

mix together and roll into balls. Bake at 325 for 8 minutes.

I am gluten free as well. Are you?
