Ingredients

Instructions 

  • First, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a stand mixer, add cubes of cold butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar. Beat until no clumps of butter remain, about 2 minutes.
  • Then, add in eggs and vanilla extract. Beat to combine.
  • Add in peanut butter. Beat until combined.
  • Add gluten free flour, tapioca flour, and baking soda to mixing bowl. Mix until a thick dough forms.
  • Fold in dark chocolate chips and peanut butter chips.
  • Use ice cream scoop or large spoon to scoop large balls of dough onto lined pan. Mine were about ⅓ cup in size.
  • Bake for 9 to 10 minutes or until cookies are just barely set in the middle.
  • Finally, remove from oven. Allow cookies to cool on pan for 10 minutes. Then carefully transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

Notes

  • Use cold butter right from the fridge.  Slice into small ½ inch cubes.
  • Use all natural peanut butter that is made with only peanuts and salt.  Any added sugars or oils will alter the texture.
  • The cookie dough will be thick.
  • I used King Arthur Flour 1 to 1 gluten free flour.  All purpose flour can work too for a non gluten free option.  I do not recommend using almond flour or coconut flour in its place since they are very different.
  • If you do not have peanut butter chips, feel free to use more chocolate chips instead.
  • Do not over bake!
  • Store cookies covered at room temperature for up to 4 days.
  • These cookies freeze well.
