Hot N’ Spicy GF PB Cookies

This peanut butter cookie recipe is adapted from Gretchen’s G-Free Peanut Butter Cookies, which was adapted from Elana’s Pantry. I doubled Gretchen’s recipe (Thank you, Ladies!)

The spiciness of these cookies sneaks up on you…adjust the spicy peanut butter/honey to suit your tastes! Here is my adaptation…PB with a kick!

Hot N’ Spicy GF PB Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl, whisk to blend, and set aside. Combine remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl, blending well. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet, mixing thoroughly. Scoop dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheet; I used a small ice cream scoop. Gently press wet fork into the top of each cookie, making a criss-cross pattern. Bake at 350 until edges are brown. (Gretchen’s recipe called for 8 minutes of baking time; my batch required 11 minutes. Oven temps vary!) Remove from oven, and allow to cool on parchment paper, then transfer to a cooling rack. Cookies are fragile right out of the oven. Makes about 30 cookies.

My batch made 22 cookies…here is the rough nutrition info per cookie:

Net carbohydrate 10.0g, fat 12.7g, carbohydrate 11g, fiber 1g,                                                 protein 4.4g, sodium 48mg, sugars 7g

  1. This sounds good, I’d never thought of adding heat to them! And very true about oven temps… I should probably start noting that I use a convection oven, which seems to shorten bake time for more delicate things like cookies.

    • Thanks! I must confess, this recipe evolved from being short on regular PB and honey, but having a nice supply of the spicy versions! I am pleased with the results. I wondered about the 8 minute cooking time…I thought it might have had something to do with the almond flour! I need to learn more about convection cooking.
