Every afternoon we set out coffee and tea with cookies or squares for our guests to enjoy. Most guests take their treats onto the deck and watch the sun set over the ocean, or they sneak a plate of treats up to their room to enjoy in private.

When we have celiacs stay with us, the afternoon treats can be challenging. There really aren’t many baked goods that people who can’t eat wheat can enjoy – that still taste really good for those of us that can eat flour. But, these simple little four ingredient cookies are a delightful choice! Everyone in our house devoured the sample batch! And, I’m almost embarrassed to tell you that they are the easiest cookies I have ever made!

Give them a try, and let me know what you think!

Have a great week,

No Flour in these cookies

What you do:

1. Preheat oven to 350oF
2. In a large bowl mix all ingredients together with a spoon.
3. Drop by teaspoonful on ungreased cookie sheet.
4. (Optional) Press 3-4 chocolate chips into each cookie.
5. Bake for 11 minutes.  Leave on baking sheet to cool thoroughly.

*We used regular peanut butter and the cookies were very sweet. If you wanted to have cookies that aren’t as sweet I think that natural peanut butter would be best

CARB FREE OPTION:

One of our Breakfast with the Broads weekly recipe readers told us that he uses this exact recipe (with natural peanut butter), but substitutes one cup of Splenda in for the sugar for a diabetic friendly cookie!
