I told you my easy peanut butter cookie recipe had only 5 ingredients and a NO FLOUR peanut butter cookie! These are gluten-free peanut butter cookies!! OK, another admission that many of you probably already know. I eat cookies from my freezer every night. I limit myself to two cookies, most of the time. So, when I am making a batch of these diabetic peanut butter cookies, I usually double or triple this healthy peanut butter cookie recipe to fill up my freezer (after all they are better for you).
How to Make my Easy Diabetic Peanut Butter Cookies
To get that classic peanut butter cookie mark on the top of the cookie, all you need to do is use a floured fork. Press the floured fork down on the top of the dough before baking the Diabetic Peanut Butter Cookies. I admit that sometimes my chocolate sweet tooth gets the best of me and I toss in some dark chocolate chips. Dark chocolate is better for you and I love the contrast with the sweet cookie. Now, this makes delicious diabetic peanut butter cookies! Also, some kids don’t like the crunch, so you can leave out the peanuts and even use creamy peanut butter.
