Recipe - Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Each week I will post at least one recipe. It will be gluten free of course, but I bet your friends and family won’t even know. Just because you’re gluten free doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on taste or quality! Of course, I’ll try to post healthy recipes, but every once in a while a little dessert is in order!

So, today, to kick off the recipes for this blog, I’ll start with Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. This is an easy one! It does not require any flour substitutes, thus no gluten-free flour conversions. And, these cookies are always a hit! I often have people ask for the recipe. They are perfect for a BBQ, to take to someone's home, or just to keep on hand every once in a while for a treat.
Enjoy! And let me know how you like it...
