Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies are one of my favorite treats. With only 3 easy ingredients you probably already have on hand in your kitchen, they are a perfect last minute treat. We love them, and I am sure you will too!
I am always seeing where my friends and even family members need gluten-free to avoid allergic reactions or discomfort. If I am making a special dessert, then it is important t me to be able to share with everyone. I hate seeing people feel left out, so making these gluten free peanut butter cookies are an amazingly easy solution. With 3 basic ingredients, it means I can literally make these in minutes, and never have to worry about shopping for something special at a pricey specialty foods store.
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Peanut Butter
Mix all three ingredients together in a medium bowl until well combined. You can use a hand mixer if you need to, but I found this easier to mix by hand. They will form a thick batter or rather wet dough. This is the consistency you want. Still moist, but able to fairly easily form into a ball. You just want this to be well incorporated and similar to the consistency of the inside of a peanut butter cup.
Next, you will preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Roll the mixture into small balls about the size of a walnut and place 1″-2″ apart on a nonstick pan. I prefer using silicone baking mats to make sure there is no sticking. Once the pan is filled take a fork and lightly press on each cookie vertically and then horizontally, forming a crisscross pattern.
Next, you will bake them for 5-8 minutes. The time may be different as some ovens are different, be sure to check on the cookies often. The cookies are done once they start to crackle around the edges. I prefer softer in the middle, but you may want to cook longer for a crisp cookie.
As you can see, these gluten-free peanut butter cookies are super easy to make, and of course, they are delicious. They are great for your friends who need gluten-free foods, but they are also amazing for everyone. As a busy mom, you probably don’t have a ton of time to be in the kitchen baking. That makes these perfectly easy and budget-friendly recipe solution!

I am always looking for cute treats for the kids, and this Edible Bug Cake is ideal. Using some of our favorite snack cakes and some simple delicious candy you can create a cute treat that is ideal for a special dessert, or for a birthday party treat.
A bug cake is a super cute idea for getting the kids excited about, “cooking”. Even if there isn’t actually any cooking involved, they can have a great time doing something fun in the kitchen. It’s also a perfect super easy idea for a kid-friendly treat that works for birthday parties, or even class parties at school. I love anything that is semi-homemade, so this is really an easy treat to make that everyone will love.
Hostess Ho Hos
Airhead Extreme Sour Candy Strips
Cut 1/2″ slits on each side of a Hostess Ho Ho or similar snack cake.
Cut a sour strip in half. Fold both halves of the sour strip and stick one in the slit on one side of the hostess, do the same with the other half on the other side. This creates “wings” that stick out on either side of the bug cake.
Taking your decorating gel, glue two eyes on the front top of your treat. You can also add fun colored stripes to the back of your bug cake using the decorating gel.
As you can see, this is a super easy treat to make for kids, or to have kids help you make. I recommend setting them up in an assembly line to make it easier to manage. You can serve them up with some gummy worms, gummy snakes, or similar as a fun dessert. I would even add these edible bug cakes to the top of a “dirt cake” as a super cute themed idea perfect for any event.

We love providing healthy snacks for kids to have at school, after school, or just because. Snacks are always a must in our house, and these are some of our favorite options that give your kids something healthy, fun, and delicious to eat. No longer do you have to worry about them overindulging on bad for them foods. Instead, you know they are going to enjoy some of these great tasty healthy snacks for kids!
I recommend investing in some small cookie cutters or special food cutters that create unique shapes in these healthy snacks for kids. Kids will eat almost anything if it is in a fun shape or has a delicious dip to enjoy along with the recipe. This list has a little of both, and many fun finger foods and snacks that your kids will beg you to make more of on a regular basis.
