Me Again...chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Recommended Posts

Well, the cake went really fast! So we decided to replace it with some cookies. These turned out great, I think they're the best cookies I've made since going gluten-free! Also, I posted it on my Blog again (I think I'm going to start posting recipes there frequently) with some pictures of the cookies. http://anerissara.blogspot.com/

These are gluten, dairy and soy free. If you don't have any other dietary issues, I bet real butter would be better!

One warning...make sure you don't over cook them, because the one pan that I left in the oven too long were like hockey pucks. Yummy hockey pucks, but still......

1/4 cup dairy and soy free butter substitute

1/2 cup peanut butter

2 cups sugar (we use fructose)

3/4 cup cocoa

4 eggs

2 cups gluten free flour mix (I use 1/2 rice flour 1/2 tapioca flour)

1 tsp. xanthan gum

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 package peanut butter chips (check the package for gluten, I used a gluten-free store brand)

Mix together peanut butter, butter, sugar, vanilla and cocoa. Add eggs one by one and blend until smooth. Add in dry ingredients, mix well. Add peanut butter chips last and mix until incorporated. Chill the dough for about an hour (or toss the bowl in the freezer for 1/2 hour like I did if you can't wait). Preheat oven to 350 while the cookies chill. Roll the cold dough one tablespoon at a time into balls, and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes (but watch them, it can vary from oven to oven). Take out and let cool before removing from the pan. Enjoy!!!

These are already dairy free!

These are already soy free!

Make it peanut free: Omit peanut butter and add 1/2 cup more dairy and soy free butter substitute. Omit peanut butter chips and replace with white chocolate chips or butterscotch chips.

Make it egg free: Hmmm, dunno if you can do it? Anyone with egg substitute experience, let me know if you can use the powdered egg substitute with this one.

yummy! the kids look like they're enjoying them :) i have a similar recipe from one of my cookbooks (Williams-Sonoma's gluten-free cookbook, I think), it's a peanut butter cookie with chocolate chips. Just uses peanut butter instead of the chips. Might have to try this recipe...definitely in a cookie mood!

Oh, man...sickchick, I'm glad you said something! I'll have to check the pkg of chips I used, but I bet they have some soy. We can tolerate a bit of soy, so it wasn't a concern for us...I went back and changed the blog post to make sure anyone who uses it checks for soy in the chips.

Enjoy Life has some allergy free chocolate chips, they may have other flavors?

Enjoy Life is a brand that does allergy free foods. They are free of all of the ones you listed, except I don't knwo about honey. Not too expensive...boy, that's a tough one. As you get used to things, you tend to find regular grocery items that are OK. allergygrocer.com has tons of products and you can search according to which foods you need to avoid, you can order them there or you can look for them at your local health food store. HTH!

Where do you find dairy free peanut butter chips? I haven't seen them and would LOVE to find some.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

colette, seriously, order the bag online. They're the best choclate chips I ever had. My boyfriend just eats them by the handful and they melt so well and since they're little they're really good to bake with without having them sink and.... Yeah, just get em.
