In this house of allergic people I live in, it is an everyday (if not more than daily) occurrence to hear, “Can I eat that? What’s in it?” While it is completely understandable that the kids are trying to make sure they do not eat something they are allergic to, it is exhausting. It makes me feel so bad when I make something one of them can’t have, but on the other hand I always have an alternative on hand for the one that is left out.
I have 2 kids with single allergies, and I just don’t know how people manage that have children with multiple allergies. I know they do manage, because parents always figure it out. It is just hard in our society, because everything revolves around food!
So, imagine my delight when I found this recipe for peanut butter cookies that has no wheat, and no dairy! I about fell out of my chair. They are so simple I almost wondered if the recipe would work when I first tried them. To my amazement these are the most delicious Peanut Butter Cookies! You can’t tell that they are flour-less! You could sell these at a bake sale and they would be gone in minutes! They are that good!
4 ingredients. That’s it! 4 ingredients and you will be in Peanut Butter Cookie Heaven!
Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 egg
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Cream the peanut butter and sugar in a bowl. This is much easier by hand.
Beat in the baking powder, and then stir in the egg. Mix until it is all combined well.
The dough will be sticky! Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Drop the dough by small tsps. onto the cookie sheet. The smaller these cookies are the better.
Sprinkle dough balls with sugar and use a fork to make the cross marks.
Bake for 10 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown around the edges.
Take the pan out of the oven, but let sit for at least 5 minutes before you try to remove the cookies from the pan. They will be fragile while warm.
Makes about 20 cookies depending on size!
I wish I had a “add a smell” feature! These smelled so good, and tasted even better!
