Flourless and Egg-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Flourless and Egg-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Just four ingredients and a brief time in the oven, these peanut butter cookies are easy to make and they are eggless and gluten-free too. They are essentially raw, but putting them into the oven adds a nice bit of crunch with little fuss. These just might be my favorite cookies to date. The best part of these cookies is of course the peanut butter, with all of that protein. The peanut butter really plays a stronger role in these cookies than most other varieties I have made and tried. It's almost like eating a spoonful of peanut butter, with some extra flair and that little bit of crispness that baking provides. They are very soft, so you may want to store them in the fridge, but I preferred them at room temperature. They keep well for several days in a well sealed container.
