Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Presented by: Paula Nemzek

This week it's sweets for the sweet. Enjoy our gluten-free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, freshly baked from the KCTS 9 Kitchen!


makes about 3 dozen


  • 1 18-ounce jar creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl stir together sugars, baking soda and salt. Blend in peanut butter and eggs. The mixture stiffens up quickly, so stir in chocolate morsels as soon as mixture is blended.

Drop rounded tablespoonsful 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Press down lightly with a fork.

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until slightly puffed and lightly browned at the edges. On a wire rack, cool on baking sheets rack 5 minutes, then transfer the cookies to the wire rack. Let cool 15 minutes before diving in.



No flour? Is this correct, I'm afraid to make these, it seems like this would just melt!


Hello Guest,

Yes, these are gluten-free cookies. Hence, no flour. Try it! You might be surprised!

This sounds like a "flourless" recipe which people then assume is gluten free. To be positive you are free of gluten, you need to read the labels of the other ingredients. The baking soda is often mixed with flour to make it pour better. Look for the baking sodas that state on the label that they're gluten free. Flour is on some seasonings and I think spices, as well, so leaving out the flour from a recipe isn't the total answer to making it gluten free. These cookies do sound scrumptious, though!


These are amazing! Thanks for the GF recipe!


are you sure there isn't something missing in this recipe?


try it---you will be surprised! it works and it tastes good


Where is the flour in this recipe


I've made other cookies similar to these but the only liquid holding things together was mashed banana and they are delicious. I will try these also although it'll be a little more difficult to spoon out.
