How To Make Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies- Step by Step

  1. Preheat the Oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicon baking liners.
  3. Melt Butter over low heat. Set aside to cool.
  4. Whisk Flour, Almond Flour, Baking Soda, and Salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  5. Mix Peanut Butter with melted Butter, Granulated Sugar, Light Brown Sugar, Vanilla, and whisked Eggs in a large mixing bowl until smooth and creamy.
  6. Mix Dry ingredients and Wet ingredients with a wooden spoon until combined.
  7. Add Chocolate Chips and mix until well combined. This chunky dough is easy to combine with your clean hands!
  8. Using a 1/4 spring-loaded cookie scoop, make cookie dough balls. Roll in your hand until round and place on the prepared baking sheet. Press on cookies until 1/4 inch thick. You can use your hand or the back of a measuring cup. Place 6-8 cookie dough balls on each prepared sheet pan.
  9. Bake cookies one pan at a time for 12 to 14 minutes. In my oven, it was 14 minutes. They will look soft and slightly underdone. Remove from oven and let cookies rest on cookie sheet for fifteen minutes.
  10. Cookies can be eaten warm or stored in an airtight container for up to one day.
