Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

By Blair Lindler

Well folks, this week kicks off a month of holiday after holiday…

A month of parties, get-togethers, pot lucks, and feasts. 

In other words, a month where it can be very difficult to wade your way through all the cakes and pastries to more fat-loss friendly dessert options because we all know that the dessert table is the one that has the biggest magnet 😉

So I wanted to give you all one of my favorite holiday baked goodies (that just happens to be fat loss friendly)…

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies


  • ½ C Truvia
  • 1 C natural peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix all your ingredients together. I highly recommend using a mixer – or you can just count the mixing as your upper body workout for the day! Your batter should look something like this…
  3. Use a melon scooper or two spoons to make small tablespoon sized balls of the dough on the cookie sheet
  4. Bake for 12-14 minutes
  5. Let cool on cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes before removing
  6. Serve and…


I like to serve them with a side of apples…

Peanut butter (cookies) and apples? A natural, fat loss friendly combination!
