This recipe for gluten-free peanut butter cookies has crispy edges and is soft, chewy, thick, and full of peanut butter flavor.


1 to 1 Gluten-Free Flour

Baking Soda

Peanut Butter


Brown Sugar – or coconut sugar

Granulated Sugar

Vanilla Extract


Butter – can also use vegan butter

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2

 In a large mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, softened butter (or vegan butter), and sugars with a hand mixer until smooth (about 2 minutes)

Step 3

Then stir in the eggs and vanilla extract. To combine, beat everything together.

Step 4

Mix in the peanut butter. To combine, stir everything together.

Step 5

In a mixing bowl, combine gluten-free flour, tapioca flour, and baking soda. Mix everything together until a thick dough forms.

Step 6

Stir in the dark chocolate and peanut butter chips.

Step 7

Scoop large balls of dough onto a lined baking sheet with an ice cream scoop or a large spoon. My dough balls were approximately 1/3 cup in size.

Step 8

Bake until pale golden all over for less crunchy cookies (about 15 minutes). Bake until the cookies are uniformly golden brown all over for very crunchy cookies (about 18 minutes).

Step 9

 Finally, turn off the oven. Allow cookies to cool for 10 minutes on the pan. Then carefully transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Recipe Tips

1. The baking time will vary according to altitude and oven. 2. You don't want them to be over baked; the bottom should be lightly golden.

3. Allow them to cool before removing them from the baking sheet. 4. You can make these cookies gluten and dairy free by using vegan butter.
