6-Ingredient Gluten-Free Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

A lesson I’ve learned when cooking awesome yet healthy food over the years? Getting fancy is fun, but sometimes simple is best.
Also? I know gluten-free desserts get a bad rap — and some are terrible — but I swear that some of the tastiest desserts I’ve ever had have been sans wheat and sometimes sans any kind of flour at all. Like these six-ingredient peanut butter chocolate chip cookies from Detoxinista that I have recently been obsessed with. One night I had a craving for a peanut butter and chocolate chip cookie and hit the Google for a quick and easy gluten-free recipe. I found hers, and it was love at first batch.
With only six ingredients (peanut butter, honey, egg, baking soda, sea salt and chocolate chips — that’s it!), I had everything on hand to make them — and they turned out so good that I’ve kept everything on hand in my pantry since just in case a craving kicks in again. Which happens, you know, about every other week or so.
The consistency of these peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies can very quite a bit from batch to batch depending on the brand of peanut butter you use, but they always taste good. And they always come out moist and cookie-like — you’d never know there was no gluten or flour, at all. I’ve tricked my friends with them, taken them to parties to have only crumbs left and eaten them with a smear of chocolate peanut butter on top (double the flavor, double the fun) in the privacy of my own living room. All. Awesome. I highly recommend.
Do you love simple recipes, too? Have any like this one that are so delicious and simple that it’s almost hard to believe? This is also kind of how I feel about roasted veggies of all kinds …Jenn
