Gluten Free Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies | #grainfree #recipe

A few weeks ago, I travelled to Dallas to promote my cookbook. The week was filled with new experiences, learning, and lots of laughter. I did a cooking demo on Good Morning Texas, signed lots of books, and taught a few cooking classes. Ashley, a sweet Dallas lady, opened up her home and invited 20 of her friends. She is quite a cook and has a beautiful dream kitchen so she had everything I needed. The lovely ladies came, I cooked, taught and answered lots of questions. Everyone enjoyed learning how to practically incorporate organic foods into our daily lives.

In Dallas, my love for teaching people to cook with whole, unprocessed ingredients was rejuvenated. I’ve taught classes for several years now and I’m discovering it’s my passion. I love the moment when the light bulb turns on for people and they realize they really can make practical, sustainable, healthy diet changes.

OK, on to the cookies. I’m shocked by how good these peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies taste. Six ingredients, gluten free, dairy free, and they taste amazing. They actually taste like they have flour in them. They’re so easy that even if you don’t bake, I promise, you can make these. Print the recipe, buy the ingredients, and whip up some crazy good cookies.

  1. These are delicious! I recently made an very similar recipe and could not believe how easy they were and how inherently allergy free (well gluten and dairy) they were. It made gluten free/dairy free baking a cinch! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Carrie so happy to hear your time in Texas was a great one and the book signing/tour went well. And what a cute idea to do a skype session too! Love it, but not as much as I love these cookies. They sound and look delicious. I plan on trying them soon but with almond butter (due to allergies). Already looking forward to it.
    Have a great week!

  3. These look great! I’ve been making peanut butter cookies similar to this for a while now, but never think to add chocolate chips. Glad you enjoyed your time in Texas, and congrats on the new book. It’s beautiful!! :)

  4. Brooke@FoodWoolf

    Wow. Gluten free, easy, and fun? Sold. I’ll tell everyone I know about your cookbook. You make cooking so delicious and healthy. And then maybe they can get that Skype lesson!

    These turned out great! I loved how chewy they were. I have a similar recipe using arrowroot but although they’re good they have a bit of an after taste and are a little pricier to make. It’s nice eliminating that ingredient and still having wonderful results! I’d probably add a little less chocolate chips next time due to personal preference but everything else was perfect! Thank you for sharing another great recipe!

    Just made a batch of these using Sunbutter and the 1/3 cup Agave you recommended as a possible sub for the sugar. I recently had some cookies do the melt and spread and did not want to chance that again, so I added a tablespoon of Coconut flour to thicken/bind and for the extra fiber, too! Nothing comes close enough to PB for me, but my kiddos who can’t have it at al loved these Subutter cookies! I think I’ll try Cashew butter next time and cut the Coconut flour down for a more chewy cookie. Thanks for the quick and easy recipe!

  7. Shannon

    I just made a batch of these and they’re delicious! My four-year old loves them and he usually won’t eat peanut butter. The only change I made was using 1/3 cup Agave and the cookies didn’t spread. They were perfect!

  8. Karen

    These cookies actually taste amazing and they look just like the photo when they are baked. I’ve made several batches since February. Just revisiting this recipe for my son who returns from camp today. :) Something healthy and special. FYI TJ’s recently came out with gluten free rolled oats and there is a recipe for GF oatmeal cookies on the bag. they look yummy, too!

  9. Kelli Gilbreath

    These are fantastic! My kids still have no idea these are grain-free. They were scooping all the crumbs off the counter so as not to miss anything. Thanks for giving us an option when the cravings for cookies set in.

  10. Danielle

    Oh my goodness! These cookies are so good!!! Thanks for posting them! Being gluten free is so hard but it’s nice to know that I can still enjoy one of my favorite desserts! (: Have a great day!

  11. Arlinda

    Made these on Sunday and they are so delicious! I don’t even like peanut butter cookies but I’ve been arm wrestling with the bf over them. :) Super good and so easy to make. I’m doubling the recipe next time.

  12. Haley

    Ive got a batch of these in the oven right now. If they’re half as good as the batter (I’ve eaten a whole cookie or two just out of the mixer) then they will be a new favorite. Great recipe, thank you so much. It’s so hard to find decent GF recipes!

  13. Katie Cordova

    My father in law is on a gluten free diet and I always make sure he has a snack to eat. I made these last night for the super bowl. I doubled the recipe and kept half for my family and brought half to the party. These were FANTASTIC. I didnt have any left at the end, which I usually do cause there are always lots of desserts. People kept raving over them and asking what kind of gluten free flower I used. I will for sure make these again and again.
    **Note: I used dark chocolate chunks instead of milk chocolate. And I cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup per batch. Cooked for 10 min.

  14. Karianne

    These cookies are great!! This is the second gluten-free peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe that I’ve made and this one definitely beats out the first one. When I made it, I used a 1/2 cup of sugar as someone recommended but noticed that the dough was still really wet, so I added two tablespoons of ground flax seed to add some fiber and help the consistency of the dough. Worked like a charm! :) In addition to the ground flax seed, I used a magic bullet to turn some oatmeal into a more flour-y like substance–totally unnecessary, but I like to add those fibrous things to cookies. I was so excited to see that they actually look AND taste like cookies!!!

  15. Tamara

    I’ve cut sugar out completely in just about everything and use Truvia instead. Will that work for this recipe? They look so yummy and I love giving the kids something different. :)

    Thank you!

      I’ve never tested it, but you could give it a try! I would add a little and taste the batter to see if it’s sweet enough. If not, add a bit more. If you give it a try, let me know how it goes!

  16. Rebekah

    These are great. Awesome consistency – very fluffy. 9 minutes is also spot on which made me really happy. Thanks for sharing this recipe … its so refreshing to have something that is easy, healthy, AND delicious. Hard to come by! My grandparents, boyfriend, and boss all loved them. And me too. :)

  17. Vanessa

    How many cookies does this recipe yield? 😛 It doesn’t say! Excited to try!!!
    Also, I’m gluten and nearly dairy free.
    I’d love your cookbook but am afraid most recipes won’t be relevant to me.
    Can you advise? I’d like to buy but for my own dietary needs.

      This recipe makes about 16 cookies. My cookbook was written at a time when I was using whole wheat grains in many recipes, but I am finishing up a downloadable pdf to go along with the cookbook that will include grain free/gluten free substitutions for applicable recipes. I’ll make an announcement when it’s out!

  18. Katie

    I doubled the recipe and kept them in the oven because they weren’t hardening up, checking every 2 min after 8 min, I finally took them out after a while thinking I was burning the bottom- they are still raw and gooey. I am hoping they will harden upon cooling. not sure what could have went wrong its a pretty simple recipe- on the plus side it really tastes a lot like a normal flour cookie!

  19. Amanda

    I’ve made these cookies several times and LOVE them. My daughter took them to school last year as her class birthday treat.
    I’m about to make a batch for my husband for his birthday, but he asked me to use almond butter. I hope they’re as good!!

  20. Claude

    Yum!! These were sooo good! Thank you so much for posting!

    I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and cooked them for about 15 mn, they were still soft when I took them out but then hardened to perfect chewy consistency. Loved them!

    I’m going to try to cook them without any sugar, I think the sweetness from the chocolate chips is enough, do you think that would ruin the texture though?

    I’ll let u know how they turn out next time I try… Thanks again!

  21. Michelle S.

    Yum!! I just finished eating 2 of the 16 cookies in the batch. I also put my cookies in for 15 instead of 9… I live in a higher elevation, so maybe 9 minutes is too short for where I live? Anyway, these are so good! I love baking & cooking w/ as little ingredients as possible. Thanks for sharing the recipe, it’s a keeper!


  1. […] Gluten Free Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies on Deliciously Organic – I’ve been having Breanna practice her baking skills for school, and we’ve been having fun trying out new recipes. I wanted Breanna to try making some ‘healthier’ cookies, though. The recipe I found on Deliciously Organic was perfect! The cookies are gluten free and don’t have any flour, but they taste like they do. We loved these cookies, and I’ll definitely have Breanna make them again. […]
