Ingredient Substitutions

  • Creamy peanut butter. choose your favorite peanut butter variety! Allergic to peanuts? Any nut or seed butter should work well in this recipe!
  • Sugar. Use granulated sugar or organic cane sugar for the best results. Note. I tired coconut sugar and it did not work. 
  • Chocolate. Drizzling chocolate on top of these cookies, or adding chocolate chips to the batter, is optional, but delicious! 
Can you make cookies with natural peanut butter?
I recommend using a peanut butter that is solid at room temperature to make these gluten-free peanut butter cookies. Some natural varieties do meet this requirement and can be used.
