We were going on a picnic with some friends and were in charge of sweet treats, panic struck when I realised I needed to make something Gluten Free! I’ve heard horror stories of cakes not rising or being stodge so Google to the rescue… I typed in Gluten Free Baking and to my surprise lots of fairly simple recipes popped up. I chose to go for Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies, not only because I love Peanut Butter but they also sounded so easy to make – maybe even a little too good to be true!
They require just four ingredients! –
200grams of Peanut Butter (Crunchy or Smooth – I chose crunchy)
175 grams Golden Caster Sugar
1/4 tsp of fine salt (I went for a pinch)
1 large egg
Pre-heat your oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4
That’s it, that’s all you need!
To make the cookie mixture all you need to do is place in a bowl all of the ingredients apart from the egg and give it a good old stir until it’s all combined. Once it’s mixed together put in your egg and mix again until you’ve formed a dough, albeit a fairly sticky dough.
Break off cherry tomato size chunks and place on a baking tray quite far apart so they have space to spread and press them down lightly with the back of a fork. Pop them in the oven for 10-12 mins or until they start to go a little golden round the edges but are paler in the middle. Take them out of the oven and leave to cool for a little while before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
Enjoy with an ice cold glass of milk, yum yum!
