Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

First things first, if you’re reading this, we’re SO excited to welcome you to our blog! We’ve been putting it off for quite a while, but it feels great to have it up and running and sharing our recipes with you. Thanks for joining!

These bad boys are gluten free and vegan and SO GOOD! I’ve been working on a GF/vegan peanut butter cookie recipe for a while now, because I was having a bit of a hard time finding that balance between softness & chewiness, while also having a cookie that doesn’t fall apart with every bite. This recipe most definitely accomplishes that with the added bonus of peanut butter cream to make them into little sandwich cookies! Yum!

As I was devouring these, I couldn’t quite place my finger on what they reminded me of, but then it hit me…Do-si-dos Girl Scout Cookies! These are literally the vegan/gluten free version of the popular peanut butter sandwich cookies that are SO addicting and delicious. So, moral of the story: make these ASAP!
