Peanut butter fans will be absolutely delighted with this sweet and chewy gluten free peanut butter cookie recipe that is a twist on the classic favorite! Make them with crunchy peanut butter and add some coarsely ground peanuts for a deeper “peanuty” flavor and extra crunch.

Ingredients

  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup gluten free oatmeal
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons ground golden flaxseeds
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F, line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

Step 2

In a food processor, combine chickpeas, honey, peanut butter and vanilla extract and blend until smooth.

Step 3

In a large bowl, whisk together egg and brown sugar, add oatmeal, flaxseeds, baking soda and baking powder and add the chickpeas and peanut butter mixture.

Step 4

Scoop out about a tablespoon of the mixture and shape into balls. Place dough balls onto the lined baking sheets, spacing them about 1 ½ -2 inches apart.

Step 5

Flatten the cookies by pressing them lightly with a fork and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cookies cool in the sheets for about 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
