5 Cookie Recipe

So tell me if you ever have this problem: you bake a whole batch of cookies, and then realize that you now have so many cookies that you could never possibly eat? No? Well then, this post may not be for you. I personally love a good cookie warm out of the oven, but Jeff and I can somehow never finish a batch, so it always feels kind of wasteful to bake them. That's why I freaking love this recipe - it makes just five cookies and is super easy and fast to whip up, plus it doesn't make a huge mess. And, you know, cookies. It's hard to go wrong with those.

This recipe is also gluten free (say whaaaaa, I know!) and this super gluten eating girl still likes them (which can be hard for a gluten free baked good), so, go and make them all of you non gluten eaters!

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies (from Plated)
Makes just 5 cookies! 

1 egg (you're only going to use half though!)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 TB peanut butter chips (or semi-sweet chocolate, I used those once and they were really good)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a baking sheet (preferably with butter, but I know some of you are going to use cooking spray and that's a-okay too.

In a small bowl, whisk egg. Reserve half for eggs in the morning.

In a medium bowl, stir together half of egg, sugar, peanut butter, and baking soda until well combined. Stir in peanut butter chips.

Roll cookie dough into 5 evenly sized balls and evenly space on cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Let cool 3-5 minutes and serve warm (preferably with a glass of milk!)

  1. It's just not fair that I'm allergic to peanuts :(

  2. I'm glad I actually read through the post rather than ignoring it. I assumed the cookie recipe would involve using flour. Being gluten free, I'm super stoked that it doesn't! :D

  3. This is genius. I always want to make cookies, but I don't want the temptation of eating 25 by myself. Peanut butter cookies are my favorite so I must try!


  4. My problem isn't that we feel wasteful, it's that we could totally eat a whole batch of cookies! hahha this seems like a more reasonable option :-)

  5. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen but I rarely bake even though I enjoy it so much. I need to make time to make these cookies, they look amazing!


  6. I wrote this down and bookmarked this, I gotta try!

  7. Ohhh, these look wonderful! Plus I like the built in portion control!! ;)
