I know what you are thinking, finally The Male Baker comes up with a recipe that I can eat! This is my first gluten free baking experiment and boy did they turn out great! They were all devoured within 2 hours of taking them out of the oven which tells ya something about these cookies. After just taking one bite, I fell in complete and instant love with these peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. And to boot, they have no flour! They are simple, fast, and chewy!
