gluten free salty peanut butter cookies 


1 ¼ cup all-natural chunky or all natural smooth peanut butter (not too oily)

¾ cup dark brown sugar, packed

1 large egg, room temp

1 ts baking soda

3  OVERSIZED TB powdered peanut butter

1 ts sea salt

plus extra sea salt for the tops of the cookie dough balls, optional but wonderful


Cook notes:

This recipe makes a small batch (about 12-15), if you want more, just double all the ingredients. The cookies have to sit in fridge for at least an hour to come together; don’t let them sit in fridge overnight as they become very dry.  They are delicate and tend to break apart if you make them big. So try not to make the dough balls bigger than a tablespoon size.

You can add chocolate chips to these.


In a small bowl add the peanut powder, baking soda, and salt and mix, set aside.

In a small bowl crack egg open and beat.

In a mixer or by hand, combine peanut butter and sugars until well combined.

Add egg to the cookie mixture, mix well.

Add in the dry mixture, by sprinkling it over the cookie dough, not just depositing it in one large dump. Mix till just combined.

Cover bowl and let it sit in fridge for about an hour.

Do not let this sit overnight as the dough becomes dry!

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Roll into tablespoon (or smaller) sized balls and place on non-stick cookie sheets or greased cookie sheets. Do not press flat, just leave as balls. Sprinkle just a touch of sea salt on the tops of the cookie balls. 

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. These cook up very fast, so I really wouldn’t go past the 10-14 minute mark.

Cool on a baking sheet for a while as the cookies are very delicate and hard to move.

The cookies are fragile and tend to break, if you make them too big.

Should make about 12-15 cookies (small batch).

If you want more, just double all the ingredients.
