Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Toffee Cookie Recipe! Gluten-Free!

Print Friendly

Who doesn’t love a good cookie especially when it is warm right out of the oven?  I was raised baking in the kitchen with my family and cookies were a big part of it.  I love everything from chocolate chip to oatmeal to cream cheese cut-out cookies however, these Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Toffee cookies are pretty spectacular.

The creamy peanut butter flavor along with the rich dark cocoa powder and chocolate chunks goes without saying, but I didn’t stop there.  I added a few toffee bits for an added caramel crunch which made them flat out decadent.  You won’t even miss the flour, so yes they are gluten free!

 

Ingredients

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup chocolate chunks, good quality chocolate

1/2 cup toffee bits (Heath)
