Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies


I have always suffered from digestive issues, and so I’ve always been a picky eater.  Whether it’s my lactose intolerance, nut allergies, fruit allergies, dislike of meat, sensitivity to acids, or my mild gluten intolerance, my insides always feel like they’re fighting a war against my meal choices on a daily basis.

So I came up with these easy to make Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies.  They’re a good base for adding extras like chips, nuts or dried fruit.

The cookie is crunchy and soft and doesn’t have the crumbly feel that you often get with gluten free cookies.
