  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil soft or melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract optional
  • 1 3/4 cup Melanie's Gluten Free Flour Blend
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Cream sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla extract (optional) in mixer until smooth.

  2. Add eggs and mix until smooth

  3. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix until fully combined.

  4. *Letting the dough rest for 15-30 minutes or refrigerating overnight will yield a puffier cookie.

  5. Scoop 1 Tablespoon of the dough onto cookie sheet. 

  6. *If the dough gently spreads then sprinkle with sugar and bake.

  7. *If the dough can be shaped then roll into a ball. Roll in sugar. Press lightly to flatten the ball to half of it's original height. You can use a fork but the fork marks will not show after baking.

  8. *If you want very thin, crispy cookies then flatten more than half the hight of the dough ball.

  9. Bake in a 350F degree oven until edges are nice and golden but not the center of the cookie (approximately 10-12 minutes). The cookies will still be soft when you pull them out of the oven. Let them rest on the pan for a couple minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
