What’s for Dessert? | Gluten-Free/FodMap Friendly Peanut Butter Cookies

My hubby’s favorite cookie anytime of year is peanut butter. As a non-peanut butter eater I used to make them for him regularly just because I love him so much & he loves these cookies! However, when his doctor put him on the FodMap diet he thought he would have to give up his peanut butter cookie habit. Initially, I was having a hard enough time just trying to learn how to cook regular meals for him without trying to learn how to make gluten-free cookies.

Well today Daniel & I decided to make a special treat for Daddy and see if we couldn’t adjust his favorite peanut butter cookie recipe to something he could now eat. While I was playing around with adjusting flours I decided to play up a few flavors that he really loves by adding molasses and almond extract. The results were really quite beautiful! Hope Daddy thinks they taste good when he gets home!

Gluten-Free/FodMap Friendly Peanut Butter cookies

2 sticks butter room temp

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 teaspoons almond extract

2 Tablespoons molasses

2 teaspoons baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup all natural peanut butter

3 cups all-purpose gluten-free flour

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper
  3. Cream ingredients together in the order listed, just stirring the flour until well combined
  4. Scoop onto your cookie sheet by the tablespoon full
  5. Bake for 7-10 minutes
  6. Allow to cool slightly before moving to cookie rack to finish or devouring.

You can pre-scoop this batter onto a cookie sheet and freeze. When frozen solid transfer to a freezer Ziploc. To bake take as many cookies out as you would like and bake as directed. Depending on the “hardness” you prefer your cookies yu can add 1-2 minutes to the bake time. I have found that 10 minutes for frozen cookies is perfect, we like them slightly softer and chewier not hard. Quick, easy, gluten-free homemade cookies anytime! You can be a hero to your hubby, kids, friends and neighbors!
