Grain Free Peanut Butter Cookies

These peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are grain free and dairy free with a soy free option.  They are very easy to make and only require a few ingredients.

These were inspired by  this recipe on the Detoxinista website.

I like to use organic peanut butter without anything added. Just peanuts aIMG_2328nd salt. It’s better to stay away from the nut butters that add sugar and unhealthy oils. I buy the large jars at Costco. Because you use the whole thing, you don’t even need to bother measuring or stirring it, unless you need to build some muscles.

 

I chose chocolate chips that don’t contain milk. I use either Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips or Wegmans Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips; they are both vegan. Using Enjoy Life will make them soy free as well.

This can be made as a low-FODMAP snack by substituting maple syrup or sugar for the honey. I did half and half to keep the cookie moist but keep it from tasting to mapley.

These freeze well. I often grab a container of cookies from the freezer, only to find it… empty. 😑
