Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Desserts must be indulgent. As a dietitian, I aim to also utilize whole-food, gluten-free, dairy-free ingredients. For example, using dates as a sweetener instead of sugars and opting for nut butters instead of flours. This quick & easy 3-ingredient cookie is family-friendly and oh so good!

PB Chocolate Chip Cookie, No Sugar

3-Ingredient Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Servings: 20 cookies


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pits removed
  • 1 cup peanut butter*
  • Optional: 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
  • Place 1 egg & 1c dates in a food processor or blender, blending until smooth (3-4 minutes).
  • Add in 1c peanut butter, blending until mixed smooth. Note: if using a blender, may want to stir in PB by hand.
  • Stir in ½c dark chocolate chips, if using.
  • Drop by spoonfuls onto an oiled baking sheet.
  • Bake in 350 F oven for 10-12 minutes.


*Note: read ingredients for peanut butter, the only ingredients should be peanuts & salt. Avoid peanut butter with added sugar.

As with all of my recipes, these cookies are perfect to make-ahead and are also freezer-friendly. Looking for a gluten-free, dairy free weekly meal plan that includes PB cookies, try our December Plan.

My favorite blender to ensure ease in blending dates? A Vita-Mix.

In my experience, Blendtec or Vita-Mix are both good investments.
