4-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies (Gluten & Dairy Free!)

I’ve been a very busy girl lately, with not a lot of time to cook. (Although does that REALLY stop me?! Heck no! LOL) As you can see… I’m still at it! And these were super quick and simple to make. With only 4 ingredients how can it not be right?! I was a little skeptical at first, i mean, there are only 4 ingredients?! But, as you can see, they turned out awesome! They’re peanut butter heaven in your mouth. Just a little crunchy on the outside, and oh so moist and delicious on the inside! Peanut butter is kind of a no-no for me, especially in something like this where its the main ingredient! But…..I did sneak a bite or two in…just to taste test them! It was worth the stomach-ache i have had since! LOL Hubs hasn’t complained though, cause with me out of the picture on these, he got the whole batch! Thank goodness it only made like 11 cookies i think! So, if you’re a peanut butter lover, this is the cookie for you! AND top it all off with being both gluten and dairy free! This one’s a winner….enjoy! 🙂
