Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Oh hey there! How are you enjoying this fall weather? I must admit I am a fan, I like being able to wear boots and cute sweaters and jacket. I can promise you once them temp drops below 50 I will not be this happy, I am not a winter person!

I am however a peanut butter person! I love love peanut butter! As part of the Foodbuzz tastemaker program with the National Peanut Butter Board I received 2 containers of Planters Peanut Butter!

I was totally pumped to find that this peanut butter didn’t have a whole bunch of added sugar and only had 3g of sugar! The taste is amazing, I am usually a crunchy peanut butter lover but let’s be honest peanut butter in any form is pretty awesome! The peanut butter was really smooth and creamy and perfect for toast, topping a bowl of oats or making these tasty treasures…
