Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

During the holidays, it's pretty hard as an SCDer to stick to the plan. To help with my propensity to cheat and go off the diet, I played around with an existing PB Cookie recipe and substituted SCD friendly ingredients making gluten free peanut butter cookies. If you've never baked with almond flour before, I'll warn you that the consistency of the batter/dough doesn't always look correct, but ends up baking up just great!! Make sure you buy peanut butter that has no sugar added (ingredients should read ONLY peanuts and salt). I love Trader Joe's organic.
