Gluten Free Nut Free Cookies | 5 Ingredient Cookies | Best After School Snack Food | Lunch Box Treats | Food Made Simple

Nothing says love like a homemade cookie tucked into your child’s lunchbox.

Even so, it can be hard to find the time to bake! Not to mention the fact that as food allergies and sensitivities become more and more prevalent, schools are also becoming more strict about what treats kids are allowed to bring and share.

It’s almost enough to make a mom throw up her hands and think, “what’s the point!?”

Luckily these Un-Peanut Butter Cookies are here to save the day on all fronts! Not only are they gluten free AND nut-free, they come together in minutes using just 5 easy ingredients. And best of all, they are still DELICIOUS!

DIG DEEPER


This five ingredients or less mini cook book is full of yummy recipes. Great family meals don’t have to be complicated. This mini cookbook serves up 10 easy meals, each only requiring 5 ingredients or less

We tested several brands of peanut butter alternatives and found we liked Sneaky Chef and Wowbutter for their smooth consistency and overall taste. That said, if nuts aren’t an issue, these cookies can be made with real peanut butter too. They are incredibly quick and easy, take just a few easy ingredients, and were a unanimous hit with all our taste-testers!

Assemble your ingredients for the un-peanut butter bookies: peanut free Wowbutter, vanilla, sugar, one egg and mini chocolate morsels.

Here is what you need:

1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter or  alternative ( we used Wowbutter)

Step 2: Then fold in mini chocolate chips.

Step 3: Use a teaspoon to scoop mixture and roll into balls.
