Grain Free Peanut Butter Cookies

These grain free peanut butter cookies are a delicious substitute for conventionally made peanut butter cookies. Although this recipe is grain free it does contain sugar so I limit myself to one or two cookies as a treat. I don’t eat them every day, I might have a dessert treat like this once a week. 

When I’m making cookies to take to a get together with my friends or family this is the most requested cookie recipe hands down! I understand why, because they are downright delicious!

Over the years, I have made a large variety of healthier cookie recipes and this one that I keep going back to over and over. Preparation is a piece of cake because a lot of the ingredients for this recipe are probably already be in your pantry.  I use my mixer to prepare these cookies and it really helps get the dough smooth and ready for the oven.

Once they are out of the oven and have cooled off, I put them immediately in Tupperware to keep them fresh. I can’t keep them in the house for longer than a couple days when I make them! Hopefully you have better luck than me.

These delicious peanut butter cookies are great paired with a tall glass of my homemade almond milk!
