Gluten-free but hankering for a cookie? This peanut butter—packed recipe includes all of the sweet and none of the wheat!

This recipe is part of the Battle of the Bloggers recipe contest.

Recipe Ingredients

1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup Smart Balance® Rich Roast Creamy Peanut Butter
½ cup cane sugar*
¼ tsp baking soda

*Optional substitute: honey (But only use a little bit of honey or else the cookies will burn easily!)

Recipe Steps

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In a mixer or mixing bowl combine all of the ingredients until well incorporated.

Form 1-inch sized balls out of the dough and place them on a lightly oiled or parchment-lined baking sheet.

Using a fork, gently make two impressions in the dough, flattening out the balls just slightly.

Bake for 8 or 10 minutes or to desired level of “crisp.”

Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet at least 10 minutes before removing them with a spatula. Since these cookies do not contain flour, they will need some time to “set up”; otherwise, they will fall apart easily.
