Today I woke up and felt this hankering to bake some cookies. Living in Los Angeles, it’s difficult to get excited for “Fall” weather since it’s pretty much non-existent. But the past few days, I haven’t been running the air conditioning, which translates to fall weather. So I’m excited to bust out my colored skinnies, lightweight scarves, t-shirts rather than tanks and bake me some cookies.
Unfortunately I didn’t have enough butter in my fridge to bake anything, so instead I found this recipe from The Kitchn the requires NO butter and NO flour, and they only take 10 minutes to bake. I literally whipped these bad boys up in less than 20 minutes. I am so stoked at the results. It’s a lighter, fluffier tasting peanut butter cookie. It has crunch, and right out of the oven they’re soft, warm and yummy inside.
SUPER SIMPLE recipe for delicious NO-butter and Gluten Free peanut butter cookies:
Preheat oven to 375.
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
additional sugar for rolling
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients. With a tablespoon, scoop and roll dough into balls (it will be sticky) and roll balls in the additional sugar. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet approximately 2″ apart and flatten slightly with a fork in a crisscross pattern. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool for about 2 minutes before removing from baking sheet.
Enjoy!! XOXO Kiira
