Peanut Butter Gluten Free & Vegan Cookies

gluten free & vegan peanut butter cookies

With my husband having Celiac and a chocolate allergy these Peanut Butter Cookies are a good option for his sweet tooth needs.

I sometimes bring these cookies to work for everyone to try. They are always surprised that a gluten free and vegan cookie could taste like a “regular” cookie, and they always eat them all!

Peanut Butter cookies are one of favorites and this is a great recipe! Enjoy!

  8. I was wondering if you can use almond butter instead of peanut butter

    • Yollys, I have not used almond butter before, but I do not think it would be an issue. If you try it let me know how it turns out!
