In our house, mama has a gluten allergy and the baby has a dairy allergy. In most cases we’ve adapted, but finding baked goods that fit both allergies can be a challenge. These naturally gluten free peanut butter cookies are one of my absolute favorites, but we had to find a chocolate substitute that was dairy free. In the past, I’ve rolled in dairy free chocolate chips like Enjoy Life or Pascha, but there’s something really satisfying about taking a bite into a big chunk of chocolate. When I tried JoJo’s new Peanut Butter Delight bars (now filled with peanut butter), I knew they’d be the perfect topper. Not only are these cookies decadently amazing, but they require few ingredients and are quick and easy to bake
1 cup of peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
JoJo’s peanut butter delight bars (use GLUTENFREE10 to save 10%)
optional: if your cookies are too runny, you can add 1/4 cup gluten free flour (I use King Arthurs)
Mix together peanut butter, brown sugar, and an egg. Add flour if the dough is too runny. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and bake on a cookie sheet at 350 for 8-10 minutes. They will still be soft when you pull them out but will firm up as they cool.
While cookies are in the oven, cut JoJos into 4 equal parts and place on top of the cookie as soon as they come out of the oven. Allow cookies to cool and enjoy!
