Melt and set aside to cool (but not re-harden): 8 oz. Semi- sweet baking chocolate
In a mixing bowl, combine:
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup peanut butter
¼ cup butter (softened)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon gluten free vanilla
Stir in the melted chocolate.
In a separate bowl, mix:
½ cup all purpose gluten-free baking mix
¼ teaspoon baking powder
Add dry ingredients to chocolate dough. Mix well.
1 ½ cup chocolate chips
2 cups unsalted dry-roasted peanuts, chopped
Use a scant ¼ cup of dough for each cookie, and drop it on a lightly greased cookie sheet (or one lined with parchment paper).
Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 13-14 minutes. Use a toothpick if you arent sure they are done.
Cool cookies on the pan for two minutes before trying to remove them. Finish cooling on a wire rack.
