Homemade (Gluten-Free) Peanut Butter Cookies

My mom made some mean peanut butter cookies when I was growing up... she still makes them when we have a family get-together.  They are comfort food at its best. 
Since my family is trying to cut out grains, I have found a great recipe for these yummy morsels that calls for NO wheat flour.  I have also cut the sugar down from the original recipe, and the peanut buttery goodness shines through :)

This recipe makes 2 dozen cookies:

1 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 c organic sugar
1/4 c packed organic brown sugar
1 large egg
1/4 c + almond flour
1/2 t aluminum-free baking soda
1/2 t vanilla extract
1/4 t fine sea salt

Heat oven to 325 degrees F.  Mix all ingredients until well-incorporated.  Roll into balls (about the size of large marbles), then smoosh with a fork in a grid pattern. 

If the dough is too sticky, just add a little almond flour as you roll them out!  Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes, until light golden brown.  They will be very light and fluffy- great with a big glass of raw milk :) YUM!
( just a note:  parchment paper was mentioned in the original recipe, but ours worked fine without)

Let these babies cool for at least 5 minutes before you dig in... and you will want to dig in!  These are so yummy :)  Enjoy!
