Craving a sweet treat that EVERYONE can enjoy? These delicious Un-Peanut Butter Cookies are gluten free, nut-free and come together quickly!
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!
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!

My oldest is 9 and he has always had to use Wowbutter and I have been amazed at how much it actually tastes like peanut butter so I was excited to try this recipe. I substituted chock chips for m&ms and they came out wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
Great recipe! I will use dairy free chocolate chips & the Wowbutter. My grandsons have dairy & nut allergies. Thanks!
