IS PEANUT BUTTER GLUTEN FREE?
There are sometimes small amounts of gluten everywhere. Manufacturers are not equal in the care they take to keep gluten away from different foods. Ideally, you would think that peanut butter is just peanuts. This is not always the case. Also, read the labels to see how much sugar and other junk is added to your peanut butter. I think these cookies are great without anymore sugar. You can decide!

- 2 cups peanut butter (I use a whole 16 oz jar of Natural Smuckers Creamy b/c it’s easy)

- Mix peanut butter, brown sugar, eggs & vanilla.
- Form into 1 inch balls. I like to measure out 1 Tablespoon of dough per ball.
- Put on baking sheet a few inches apart.
- Bake 375 for 9 minutes. Personally I like soft cookies so my sweet spot on my oven is to bake for 350 convect for 7 minutes.
- Once baked and warm, smoosh one chocolate into the middle of each warm cookie.
- Eat while warm.
This recipe yields approximately 50 cookies.
If you’re looking to make these even healthier, find chocolate at your local health food store or on Amazon that is both free trade and organic. Read here. But I read that Hershey went GMO free this year so good for them. Baby steps.
This recipe came from a friend. It was in her head. It’s fast and easy to make and memorize. Forgive me. I do not know who on the www to give credit for this recipe!
