Andrew and Chloe get in on the cookie making fun.

I love making sweets to give as gifts — though the ingredients I use today are vastly different from what I used to use.

Ten years ago, as a broke college student, I made fudge for everyone’s Christmas gift. The two main ingredients were butter and cane sugar, yikes!

Now the sweets I gift are made with wholesome, healthy ingredients, like these chocolate peanut butter cookies.

Gluten and cane sugar free, these cookies are packed with wholesome calories, and usable nutrients.

Side note, this recipe is my fourth attempt at making gluten free peanut butter cookies that stick together and have good texture.

The first attempt was crumbly, second was mushy, third wasn’t sweet enough, and fourth was perfection 🙂

  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

    Love your blog! Trying to eat better. You recommend the Honeyville almond flour and I see from the reviews that people love it! However, it is not organic. Just wondering why you chose that. I am just sorting out what to eat or not and much of what I read stresses eating organic when possible. Your thoughts on this would be appreciated!

      Hi Annie,

      Honeyville Almond Flour is non-GMO and Certified Gluten Free. It has a much better consistency and texture than other brands I’ve used in the past.

      Happy cooking 🙂
