Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

Many (good) gluten-free recipes require expensive almond meal, quality gluten-free flour, or a myriad of ingredients like brown rice flour, sorghum flour, xanthan gum, potato starch … not ingredients found in your average kitchen pantry!

So when the request came to make a gluten-free treat, I turned to this peanut butter cookie recipe from Joy the Baker’s blog. With my own addition of dark chocolate chunks, this recipe uses only six ingredients: peanut butter, brown sugar, white sugar, an egg, baking soda, and chocolate.

They taste delicious – and you can’t even tell they’re gluten-free!

Peanut Butter Cookies – with Manuka Honey

Image

Preparing for a weekend away always involves baking treats to share. For this last trip, I decided on peanut butter cookies (with chocolate of course!). I used Curtis Stones’ recipe, which also includes honey (I used Manuka).

The result was a melt-in-your-mouth, moorish cookie – with a luxurious top note of honey. The hint of honey sets the recipe apart from your standard cookie recipe and really does finish the cookie off. I’ll be using this recipe again!
