Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whew. Longest food name I have ever used for a blog post. But...also one of the most simple! These have 5 ingredients and bake up in less than 8 minutes. 

This is just a simple twist to my previous nutella gluten free cookies. 

And that was a twist on a recipe the mom I nanny for shared. So I can't really take credit.

But just as delicious. 

maybe too delicious.

 and really easy to discover that they are suddenly gone.

 and probably in your belly.

or maybe that is just me.

1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup dark chocolate chunk(or chips)

Combine all ingredients. I like to put "dough" in fridge for about an hour and then I use a tbsp to scoop and place on a cookie sheet. bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes. 

Keep in mind that these do not really rise, but they do bake kind of "out" They will appear under cooked at first. Once they cool, they are perfectly crispy on the edges and chewy in the center with the added chocolate chunks. 

I have found it better to lay down parchment paper and bake on that. and then, when they cool for about 5 minutes or so, peel the cookie off the paper. Even with non stick spray, these don't pop off of a pan without some sort of paper or foil. 

I also think these would be very good with craisins. You know, for if you were a somewhat healthy person. 

In other words...don't expect that version on here.
