Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

So I decided it was time to make a change.  Our family began this gluten-free lifestyle recently, on a whim.  I'm on day 29 today.   We are trying it out to see how eating less gluten, wheat, etc. . will be better for us.  It never hurts to try, right?

The searching for gluten free recipes started days into this decision and being the research queen that I am, I found great resources, blogs and pins that were a lifesaver.

Then the day came.  Princess and I got a sweet tooth and wanted some crunchy chewy yumminess.  But what's a girl to do on this gluten free new adventure?  I discovered a couple of good peanut butter cookie recipes.  I checked the ingredients, and had to take a double take.  No flour?  Now how can you make cookies without flour?  Yah right.

I looked deeper into this.   I couldn't believe it!  I just had to give the recipe a try.  Yes, they baked.  Yes they looked like cookies.    Those Peanut butter cookies were delicious and healthy! Score.  However, I tweaked it and made my own with brown sugar instead of no sugar or white sugar.  I like it better with brown sugar.  

So, if you are a gluten free vet or a newbie like me, I'm sure you will find this recipe unbelievably simple and satisfying.

Blessings and Shalom,
