Peanut Butter Bomb Cookie Recipe (Gluten Free)

Peanut butter bombs recipe | Milk & Cookies

Peanut butter, pools of melted marshmallow, hazelnuts, dates, and flax-seed; no butter, no flour.  One of those cookies you could throw anything into only as a bonus; it’s a cookie with exponential possibilities because eating is the only mathematics I can excel in.

Peanut butter has been a serious addiction, plowing through a jar, a bag of reese’s, or some peanut butter flavoured anything has been known to happen on a regular (what I still think of as healthy) basis.  And, as I trudge forward through ups and downs, ins and outs, peanut butter will always be there for me because it’s reliably smooth and savoury, crunchy and salty, light and creamy.  I love it, even if it never says it back.

Let’s just get into it. Hold onto your EpiPens all you anaphylactic peanut butter haters, this recipe is not for you (Keri).   Nope, this one is dedicated to my man George Washington Carver, a great American inventor, dedicating his life to discovering hundreds of uses for the peanut.  Including the popular: wood stain, flooring, adhesive, and the ever so delicious dish – axle grease.  I’m sure he’d be happy to know, over a hundred years later, while kids all over the world are slowly developing allergies to his beloved crop, the other half of us genetically peanut-buttery superior beings are slathering his gooey gold onto candy bars, toast, bananas, and into peanut butter bomb cookies.

Thank-you, Mr. Carver, without you childhood, and that kilo bag of peanut butter m & m’s I took down last night, would have never been a memory.

Here’s a step-by-step peanut butter bomb recipe.
