Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies
These gluten-free chocolate-dipped peanut butter cookies have the perfect crunch to them with a sweet and salty flavor. They are dipped in melted dark chocolate chips. You may use sugar-free chocolate chips or skip the chocolates altogether. They are super fun and easy to make. We love that added protein but if you would like to make it without protein, just add 1/4 cup peanut butter or flour.

HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

  • Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 325 F and prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix dry ingredients: Place the flour, protein, coconut sugar, Truvia, salt and baking powder into a mixer and mix until combined.
  • Add other ingredients: Add in the egg, coconut oil, peanut butter, and vanilla then mix well. Add in the water 1/4 cup at a time and continue mixing until a dough forms. If the dough is too dry, add more water until you have reached a cookie dough consistency.
  • Bake cookies: Use a cookie scooper to scoop round mounds of dough and place them on the baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Use a fork to press them flat. Bake cookies for 7 minutes. Don’t over bake. Remove and let cool completely.
  • Dip cookies in chocolate: Once cooled, melt chocolate and dip each cookie until half covered. Place the chocolate-dipped cookies in the fridge to chill until chocolate sets. Serve.

How long can peanut butter cookies last

Store the peanut butter cookies in a container and place in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. Storing in the fridge will prevent the chocolate from melting. Without chocolate, you can leave the cookies at room temperature on your counter in a container for 5-7 days.

    Chocolate dipped peanut butter cookies are my favourite and the gluten free recipe makes it all the more enticing and mouth-watering knowing that it will not add to my weight like regular cookies 😛
