Ingredients

  • 1 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • ½ cup Brown Sugar can sub Coconut Sugar
  • ½ cup Unsalted Butter softened (vegan butter for dairy free)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Egg whole
  • 1.5 cups Gluten Free Flour Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • ¼ tsp Salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350'
  • Put the peanut butter, softened butter (or vegan butter) and sugars in a large bowl and use hand mixer to combine until smooth (about 2 minutes)
  • Add in the eggs and vanilla extract and mix again until fully combined
  • In a separate bowl, add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine and then pour into the bowl with the wet ingredients
  • Use rubber spatula to fold wet and dry ingredients together until fully combine and then use a cookie scoop to scoop out dough and roll into a ball. You should get about 24 total
  • Place the balls on a lined baking sheet (parchment paper or a silicone mat) and then gently press the top of each ball down with the back of a fork (vertical and horizontal) to make the classic criss cross pattern (can sprinkle granulated sugar on top if desired) 
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes, be careful not to over bake, you want them to be soft and chewy. Let cool before removing from the baking sheet. Store in an airtight container or ziplock bag
