Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies studded with chocolate chips and dressed up for the season with fall colored peanut butter M&M’s on top. These gluten-free cookies are tender and chocolatey and without the flour, the peanut butter flavor shines through.

My niece and I were talking about baking cookies for her wedding, and she said she wanted to include a gluten free cookie for family members that were eating gluten free. I suggested serving flourless peanut butter cookies.

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe from Barbara Bakes #Gluten-free

Ultimately she decided not to serve cookies, but I couldn’t get the flourless peanut butter cookies off my mind; everyone raves about how terrific they are. Everyone at my house agreed – they’re a tender, soft, delicious cookie.

My son’s friend Mitch especially loved these cookies. He’s always complimentary about everything he eats at our house, but he said these cookies were the best cookies ever.
