Peanut Butter Gluten Free Cookies

Peanut Butter Gluten Free Cookies

gluten-free-cookiesIt seems lately that so many of my friends have an intolerance for gluten in their diets. I know how hard it is for them to find yummy treats that will satisfy their sweet tooth.  Well they need not worry because these gluten free cookies are absolutely delicious!  First of all who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate?  I made these cookies with Easter colored M&M’s which also makes them perfect for the holiday.

I am not gluten intolerant, but I am so in love with these cookies.  This recipe makes a big batch and they are easily stored!  What is also great about this recipe is that you can use regular oats also if you aren’t worried about the gluten.
