Gluten-free Peanut Butter Bars


This cookie recipe is a family favorite!

The peanut butter combined with the chocolate and drizzled over with a powdered sugar/peanut butter mixture is amazing! 

Of course it is gluten-free, BUT if you want to make it regular, just switch to regular flour, take out the xanthum gum, and do 2 cups of quick oats instead. 

If you need a yummy gluten-free treat I think you will enjoy this.


If you want to watch this step-by-step my Youtube video link of this is below.

  1. Mix ingredients in order listed above, mixing each time. 
  2. Pour cookie mixture into one cookie sheet and flatten out until even. 
  3. Bake in oven at 325 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
  4. While baking combine the drizzled topping ingredients, stir altogether. Texture should pour onto cookies easily (however too runny doesn’t work very well). 
  5. As soon as you take the hot cookie bar out of the oven, dump chocolate chips across the cookie sheet. 
  6. Chocolate chips should begin melting, start to spread the chocolate across the entire peanut butter layer with a butter knife. 
  7. Once chocolate layer is spread out, drizzle the powdered sugar topping over the top. 
  8. Allow to set for a few minutes. 
  9. Enjoy!!

I hope you LOVE this recipe as much as we do. And as always, comment below with any other gluten-free baked goods I should try out.


Until next time,
