Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies are just delicious.
The kids loved them and so did the Hubs and I.
They are great in lunch boxes. Make fantastic after dinner desserts or 
satisfy that sweet tooth.
Just ask my kids.
We definitely give this 5 STARS!!!

I found this recipe on 
Whole Foods 
website and it came with a lot of 

and the greatest thing is...

This gluten-free version of a classic does not require a special flour blend; it can be assembled with Basic Pantry Staples
{and a sprinkle of love}

OH JOY!!!!

3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup creamy unsweetened peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Beat together egg, sugar, baking soda and vanilla in a standing mixer with the paddle attachment or with a hand-held mixer. Beat in the peanut butter. Stir in chocolate chips if using
or sprinkle with a little sugar like I did.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet, pressing lightly with the back of a fork.
Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly set. Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
