I was trying to come up with a sweet treat to give my kids for Valentine’s Day this year when I decided to make some Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. Now my son has a tree nut/peanut allergy so using regular Peanut Butter in our home is an absolute NO-NO! We have found a really neat product called Wowbutter that we use instead and it is made with Soy instead of Peanuts!
I try to limit the amount of Gluten that my family eats too because I’ve read a lot of horrible effects that can come from eating it so I decided these cookies would be made without anything with Gluten!
Gluten Free, Nut Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 Egg
- 1 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 cup Soy Butter (We used Wowbutter)
- 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
- 1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
|In a large bowl, combine all ingredients starting with the dry ingredients and then adding in the egg and vanilla extract.|
|Mix until well blended. The dough will be quite stiff at the end to stir.|
|Place in refrigerator until chilled. (About one hour)|
|Take a spoonful of dough and place on a cookie sheet. Use a fork to push the cookies out flat and bake at 400 degrees for about 8-10 minutes or until the cookie is just starting to brown.|
