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!
