Gluten Free Cookie Ideas

I love to bake. I know I have said it before and I will probably say it again, I find baking relaxing. However, I do not always find gluten free baking relaxing.

Recently though I realized that I have quite a few cookie recipes that are naturally gluten free. They do not need any adapting at all and those are sometimes the best gluten free recipes to make.

I thought I would share some with you today.

And yes three of them contain coconut. Sorry to you non coconut lovers.

Fudgy Coconut Cookies

Lemon Macaroons

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

These are not nut free, but they are gluten free and very good. These were one of the first cookies I made after going gluten free. I missed these cookies once my daughter was diagnosed with her peanut allergy. So if you can eat peanuts they are a great recipe.

Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

What is your favorite gluten free cookie to make?

  1. I love flourless PB cookies! My husband is not GF and he thinks they are the BEST cookies ever! I use 1 cup sugar, 1 cup PB and 1 egg, plus chocolate chips. I tried brown sugar and it really flattened out the cookies, plus they didn’t stay soft for very long.

    I love how fast you can make them!

    Try the peanut butter cookie recipe with sunbutter, it’s made from sunflower seeds and it’s works great. I’ve had a few brands, all tasted fine in recipes, but I prefer trader joes the best in a sandwich or for celery or apples. I hadn’t had anything peanut butter in years and now my husband says everything I make is a peanut butter recipe, subsituting with sunflower seed butter. :o)

  3. I’ll have to try those chocolate coconut macaroons, they look so good.

    My favorite gluten free cookies are probably flourless peanut butter cookies, they are just so quick and easy.
