Quinoa Old Fashion Peanut Butter Cookies

Something that has always been a bit of an indulgence for me and my family is a delicious peanut butter cookie. I used to bake up the ever so famous gluten-free recipe from Kraft Canada however since our household has cut out all chemicals from the foods we consume these are now out for us. See for these to properly turn out you need to use the traditional smooth peanut butter that typically contains these following ingredients that are excluded from my son’s diet: soybean oil, corn maltodextrin, hydrogenated vegetable oil, mono-and diglycerides. Sorry Kraft for calling you out on this but it’s true. We have now switch to Natural Peanut butter I am not brand picky as to the one we buy as long as the only ingredient is 100% peanuts. After trying a few recipes out and switching a few things up I have come up with what will now be our new peanut butter cookie recipe.
