It doesn’t get much better than chocolate and peanut butter, folks. As you may have noticed by the other chocolate & peanut butter recipes I have on my blog, I LOVE the combination of chocolate and peanut butter together. It is definitely my favorite flavor combo! These gluten-free chocolate peanut butter swirl cookies marry both of those flavors in a delicious cookie.
Make sure you use good quality chocolate as the chocolate flavor really is intense in these! I love the ribbons of peanut butter throughout the cookie. Trust me, these are soooo good!
The original recipe for these chewy & fudgy cookies came from Picky Palate. While her blog isn’t a gluten-free blog, it is a great source for inspiration for recipes for my cooking and baking. I love her recipes so much that I just picked up a copy of her cookbook, The Picky Palate Cookbook, and am looking forward to trying many more of her recipes, adapting as needed to suit our gluten-free household.
This recipe takes just a little bit longer to prepare than most cookie recipes, because you are going to need to freeze the peanut butter mixture for 30 minutes before adding to the batter, so make sure you allow enough time.
Just out of the oven, these cookies are fudgy and the chocolate is gooey and melted.
If you let them cool and set-up, they become a sturdy, but still chewy and fudgy, cookie that is enjoyed by everyone.
I often put half of these into the freezer so we can enjoy some another day. When you want to use them from the freezer, just pull out however many you want, and microwave at 80% power for about 12-15 seconds. You may need to do a little longer, depending on your microwave.
They make a great afternoon snack!
