Peanut Butter Cookies (wheat free)
8 votes


Wheat free peanut butter cookies. They do have a lot of fat but I make them for my kids. They are fairly high in protein although I do not have an analysis on that. Also I use Sucanat for the sweetener but you could substitute regular sugar or honey. Also, I generally use all organic oil, flours, and peanut butter. Also, this recipe has about half the sugar of an ordinary cookie recipe.
