Peanut Butter Cookies: flour-less & gluten-free, but also delicious!

gluten free peanut butter cookies

So, I went through about 3 jars of peanut butter this week because I wanted to try out a few different flour-less peanut butter cookie recipes. Good thing they are so easy and quick to whip up! I made a few tweaks and tried a few different things, but this is the recipe that I like the best so far. Great texture, great flavor. Gluten-free with ingredients you probably already have!

Recipe adapted from America’s Test Kitchen Quick Family Cookbook and Make and Takes.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes
Serves: 20
Adjust Servings: 20


  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Topping Ideas:

  • Reese's Pieces
  • crushed peanuts
  • M&Ms


  • Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C.
  • In a medium or large bowl, lightly whisk the egg.
  • Whisk the sugars and vanilla in with the egg until combined. Set aside to let sugars dissolve a bit.
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • Measure out the remaining ingredients. (I like to spray my measuring cup before adding peanut butter.)
  • Stir the peanut butter into the sugar mixture until smooth. Then stir in the salt and baking soda.
  • Working with about 1 Tbsp of dough for each cookie, place them on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Lightly flatten the balls with the palm of your hand. If using toppings, gently press the toppings onto the top of each cookie.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating half way through.
  • Edges should be set and starting to brown slightly.
  • Let cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 2 minutes.
  • Transfer to wire rack.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
