In honor of National Peanut Butter Day, sharing my family’s Peanut Butter Cookie recipe for the first time and they are so yummy!
Adapted these to be Gluten-Free AND Vegan (left an egg option on the recipe for those who want it) and they taste just like I remember! Crispy on the outside, a little chewy on the inside and YUMMY!
All you need are 10 real, whole food ingredients…. butter or dairy free butter, brown sugar, cane sugar, vanilla extract, flax eggs or regular eggs, peanut butter, gluten-free flour (we used GF Jules, affiliate link), baking soda, gluten-free baking powder and a pinch of salt.
No matter how you make them, they are super easy to whip up. Just please note that if you use regular eggs, you have to add a little extra flour.
And have fun making criss crosses with a fork….
You’ll get about 24 -30 cookies depending on how big you make them. And if they don’t disappear in a minute, they freezer well.
Hope you love them as much as we do!

A super easy classic peanut butter cookie! This is my family's recipe adapted to be gluten-free, with vegan and non-vegan options. No matter what you choose, they are crisp on the outside, slightly chewy on the inside and yummy!

My husband and I love these cookies. Recently he requested that we make them more “peanut butter-y” so we’re going to play around with that.
Happy you love them! And you can never have too much peanut butter! If you decide to add more it should work but the texture might be less crisp and a bit fudgier depending on how much you add!
Hi Kate! I decide to make them using double the peanut butter! And the recipe still works great! AND, they are more peanut buttery! Let me know if you make them again!
