Super Simple Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

No all-purpose flour? No problem, I got you covered. Here I created a cookie recipe for you that is simple, quick, and gluten-free! Almond flour is used in place of all-purpose flour.

All you need is 5 simple ingredients:

  • peanut butter
  • brown sugar
  • egg
  • almond flour
  • vanilla extract

5 minutes to prepare, 10 minutes in the oven, and 5 minutes of cooling later you’ve got yourself a sweet and tasty dessert!

Try not to eat all of the dough before you bake it. Yes, its that good!

Eat up these cookies with a nice and cold glass of milk!

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 10 Min
Total time: 20 min
Yield: 15 cookies


  • 1 cup (160g) light brown sugar
  • 1 cup (240g) creamy peanut butter
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (24g) almond flour


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium size bowl mix together the brown sugar, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla. Add in the almond flour.
  • Scoop the cookie dough by tablespoon onto prepared baking sheet and press down with a fork. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes, or enjoy right off the pan!


  • You can substitute crunchy peanut butter for the creamy if you want some extra crunch in your cookies.
