Hot Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies- gluten free, dairy free, vegan & can even be egg free

After a brief intermission (sorry dear readers, but life happens-lol) We are back to continue on with our recipe adventure with Mary Frances’ Gluten Free Cooking School .
Last week Thursday’s entry was to be a delightful ditty about cookies. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip to be exact. OH Beloved, I can honestly say that I have never in my recently gluten free life experienced cookies like these. All this time my favorite was a simple flour less peanut butter cookie recipe, but that has all changed–well, sort of. Mary Frances’ hubby, John, has taken these cookies to a whole new level!

Feast your eyes on these babies — don’t they look simply amazing?!?! And the best part of it all is that they are gluten free, dairy free and can also be made egg free – wooot!

Mmmmm cookies!

most beautiful cookies!3 1/2 dozen goodies!

3 1/2 dozen of deliciousness! (I doubled the recipe and used a tablespoon to measure *winks*)

After baking all the cookies, we decided that they absolutely MUST be partnered with Hot Chocolate for our midmorning Math break 😉

See the happy smiles.

All cookies and smiles
