Love peanut butter and chocolate? These super simple, 4 ingredient, gluten free peanut butter cookies are quick, easy, and delicious!

First let me ask you something: do you know what a peanut butter blossom is?? I ask, because as I went to title this post “gluten free peanut butter blossoms” (instead of just cookies), my friends asked me, what’s that?! 

I sighed. The peanut butter cookies with the hershey kiss in the middle! Instantly they knew what I was talking about. But then that made me think, maybe OTHERS don’t know what a peanut butter blossom is either.

So I last minute changed the title to gluten free peanut butter cookies, realizing that once you all see the photos, you will realize they are more than just your average cookie 🙂

This month’s Recipe Redux theme was the inspiration of these babies, as making peanut butter cookies and having them around at all times, is a must when my family comes together for the holidays! My siblings are huge peanut butter fans…

Trimming the Table: The holiday baking season is upon us. Time to pull out all the stops. Show us the healthy holiday dessert you will be sharing with family and friends this season.

Peanut butter cookies {with hershey kisses, aka, peanut butter blossoms}, have always been a favorite cookie of mine. I think mostly because I need chocolate in a cookie to be happy. Even though I do love my peanut butter. So what completes a peanut butter cookie more than a hershey kiss smack dab in the middle??

But with my brother in law being completely gluten free, I decided it was time to make an alternative to the typical peanut butter cookie I usually made.

Say hello to my SIMPLE gluten free peanut butter cookie recipe, that only has THREE ingredients. Well, 4 if we are counting the hershey kiss. That’s my kind of recipe. Simple. Few ingredients. Yet delicious.

Peanut butter. Coconut Sugar. An Egg.

If that’s not simple enough, I don’t know what is! Plus, it’s all natural ingredients.

I actually got the mini kisses and made mini cookies, because, everything in mini size is so much cuter and fun to eat, am I right?

Plus, we all know how many treats are around on the holidays. So mini sized treats make it easier to try out more of them 🙂
