Making desserts secretly gluten-free is something I’ve been doing for years now. If you’ve tried my gluten-free gingerbread cookies, Nutella banana bread, or my gluten-free pumpkin bread, then you’ll know what I’m talking about. So, when I say these peanut butter blossoms are secretly gluten-free, I mean it! No one will be able to tell these peanut butter blossom cookies are gluten-free and sweetened with all-natural sweeteners.

Easy Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Pretty much all of the cookie recipes I have on my blog are super simple to make! My chewy trail mix cookies are a breeze and my vegan pumpkin cookies are just as easy. What I especially love about this peanut butter blossom recipe though, is that you literally add everything to a bowl, mix it, scoop it onto your baking tray, bake away, and stick that beautiful Hershey’s kiss in the center and then BAM! Done. Cookies are served. My friends devoured these even when they were a few days old on the counter. They really hold their delicious flavor and texture for quite a while which I love!

If you are all about making complicated cookie recipes, be my guest. If you’re looking for a Christmas cookie recipe that’s a little more technical, definitely check out my healthy sugar cookies or my original gluten-free sugar cookie recipe. But if you’re here for a S.I.M.P.L.E. recipe, then these gluten-free peanut butter blossoms are your new bestie.

Vegan Pb Blossom Cookies

We use a flax egg in this peanut butter kiss cookie recipe to make these cookies hold together. You can sub a regular egg here if you don’t have dietary restrictions. I haven’t tried it with a regular egg, but it should turn out well. Let me know if you try it! We also use pure maple syrup to sweeten these cookies, but you can also use honey if you’re not strictly vegan. Wondering how to make a flax egg? Here are some simple instructions or look down below at the recipe!

How to Make a Flax Egg or Chia Egg

You can probably also use a chia egg if you don’t have flax on hand. I use a chia egg in my vegan raspberry brownies and Vegan Sugar Cookie recipe. If you’ve never heard of a chia egg, don’t be freaked out. No, it’s not made from a chia chicken!  Chia eggs are very simple. They work just like eggs! 

  • Just grind up 1 Tbs of flax seeds or chia seeds in a coffee grinder (or whatever you use to grind things)
  • Mix ground up flax seeds in a small bowl with 2 Tbs water. 
  • It will thicken and become like an egg!

Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

These are the best Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Blossoms ever! You only need 7 ingredients to make this recipe and it’s so easy. They’re naturally sweetened with just pure maple syrup and naturally gluten-free thanks to oat flour. They will be your new go-to Christmas cookies!

Prep Time 7 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

Wet

  • 1 Flax Egg (1 Tbs ground flax + 2 Tbs water)
  • ½ Cup Peanut Butter (ingredients should be peanuts and salt. Use code “shh20” for free shipping on my favorite brand!)
  • ⅓ Cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Dry

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Make a flax egg by adding 1 Tbs ground flax + 2 Tbs water to a small bowl. Mix and set aside to thicken 3-5 minutes.
  3. To a medium bowl, add thickened flax egg and wet ingredients. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
  4. Add the dry ingredients except chocolate kisses and beat until dough forms. It will be thick and sticky. Allow dough to sit for at least 5 minutes to allow the flour to absorb moisture.
  5. Use a small cookie scoop to transfer cookie dough onto baking tray (should make about 13 small cookies). Do not flatten them. Bake at 350 F. for 13-15 minutes until lightly golden. Remove from oven and immediately press one dark chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie. Allow to cool at least 5-10 minutes before enjoying!

Notes

  1. Can I freeze this peanut butter blossom cookie dough? Absolutely! You can make your peanut butter cookie dough ahead of time and freeze it for up to 3 months before baking. Allow to defrost on counter and then complete step 5 to make cookies.
  2. Can I use a regular egg instead of a flax egg? Sure! If you don’t have a dietary restriction or allergy to eggs, go ahead and use a regular egg for these healthy peanut butter blossoms. I haven’t tested this, but let me know if you try this and how they turn out!
