Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies are wonderfully chewy-soft and need only 6 ingredients. They stay soft for days, and can be frozen airtight.

  • Prep Time: 15 min
  • Cook Time: 8 min
  • Total Time: 23 minutes

Yield: 35 1x


  • 2 cup creamy peanut butter 
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups real milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F, with rack on lower middle position. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Place all ingredients except for chocolate chips in stand mixer or a large bowl. On medium speed, mix ingredients just until fully incorporated. Gently stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Form heaping 1 tablespoon-sized dough balls and place onto parchment lined baking sheet. Flatten them slightly, but keep them 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake 8 minutes. They should seem slightly under baked; they’ll set up nicely as they cool.
  5. Let cool a few minutes on pan, carefully transfer to wire rack, and finish cooling.


I prefer Skippy Naturals creamy peanut butter in this recipe, as it’s lightly sweet and extra creamy. If your peanut butter is unsweetened, you may increase sugars: 2/3 cup brown sugar + 2/3 cup granulated sugar. 

If needed, check that baking soda is certified gluten-free.
