Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are pretty fabulous for having no flour or butter in them! A bit on the crumbly side, but delicious!


1 cup peanut butter
½ cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
1¼ Tsp baking soda
¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and line baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil. If using aluminum, lightly coat it with butter or vegetable shortening.
2.Beat peanut butter and light brown sugar on medium speed for 1 minute or until well blended. 3.Combine egg and sprinkle baking soda on top.
Beat again on medium speed for another minute until all ingredients are well combined.
4.Fold in semisweet chocolate chips.
5.Roll dough into approximately 1-inch balls or drop it by teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets, spacing about 1½ inches apart.
6.Form the trademark crisscross with the tines of a fork. Press slightly if you prefer thicker cookies.
7.Bake one sheet at a time and refrigerate the other.

Remove cookies when edges are lightly browned, about 10 to 12 minutes. They will be soft to touch. Carefully transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely before serving.
