    Thank you I will! Order the cookbook and make the cookies. I love to bake and baking SF/GF has been a real challenge for me until now. Now that I have found your wonderful site and have followed the links to other sites I am having success and feeling “normal”.

    I am going to Barnes and Noble tomorrow. Hopefully they will have the cookbook you are recommending. My five year old granddaughter has Celiac Disease, so I am sure some of these recipes will be a real treat for her.
    She lives in Mexico with her parents (my son!), so oftentimes it is a challenge to get some of the ingredients for GF cooking but we try to ship things down to them when we can.
    I’m going to enjoy this blog! Thank you so much.

    I was at B&N today and I didn’t see it – they do have some g-free cookbooks. The problem I’ve had with so many is that the recipes don’t work. Not so with this cookbook. I am sure your daughter has to work really hard to take care of your granddaughter. I don’t know if Amazon ships to Mexico, but they have good products at fabulous prices. If I can ever do anything to help please let me know.

    These would definitely be a kid favorite around my house. However, I’m not as in love with bean flour as many other GF bakers – it just doesn’t love me back, so to speak. Wonder what I could use to substitute…

    At first I thought the same thing but once I did the math I figured out that at most there is two teaspoons of garbanzo bean flour in each cookie. If I ate ten I might have a problem but two or three is no big deal. Also, my doctor recommended garbanzo beans and flour to help with the sluggish gut that often occurs from eating gluten free. It’s really helped me.

    I used to make the peanut butter version for my kids when they were small, and I still do make them on request. This version looks terrific, and on your recommendation I ordered the book. The reviews were good, so it looks like a great book to own. I was trying to stop buying cookbooks, but there are always exceptions to that rule!

    I love almond butter, and pairing it with jelly, in cookie form? Sounds like perfection!

    I want to try making them in little cookie sandwiches. Of course I thought of it after I took the pics.

    I have yet to try almond butter, believe it or not. I’m sure I’d love it. I actually was tempted to buy some at Whole Foods when we picked up a few items to keep in our room, but knew I didn’t want to have to deal with bringing it back home. Eventually I’ll get some. I’m not big on fruit preserves, so I’ll try to do a brown sugar cinnamon center … remembering that filling from Pop-Tarts back in the day. LOL

    I think I heard Rebecca Reilly speak at a GIG conference a few years back. Unfortunately she wasn’t talking about baking, but was cooking other dishes.

    Love that first photo with the pink background!

    Shirley – you could just roll them in sugar and press them with a fork like regular peanut butter cookies. I, of course, can’t but they’d be fabulous that way.

    Hi Amy,

    I’m a Holistic Nutritionist, always on the lookout for recipes that aren’t full of junk. I made this one the other night with a few modifications based on what I had. I subbed spelt flour for garbanzo, and threw in some carob chips in place of the preserves. My boyfriend freaked out and ate four within a 1 minute time span. He made me put the rest away before he devoured them all.

    So I just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you for posting this recipe…it rocks!

    Amy Reply:

    @Jenn, It’s great to hear that you think this is a healthy recipe. How did the carob chips melt? They seem to bake ok for me if they’re not at all exposed (totally wrapped in dough) but if not they get a little dry and funky.

    I love these cookies. In fact, I was just thinking that maybe they’d be good rolled in coconut and then baked. Thanks for coming back to share this!

    These are fast becoming my family’s favorite cookie! Since my brother and I cannot eat corn or dairy, I omitted the butter and xanthan gum (a corn derivative) and they still turned out wonderfully! I recently brought them to a cookie exchange party and the guests were pleasantly surprised to taste such delicious gluten free treats. Thanks for your inspirational recipes. Keep up the good work!

    @Rita, Thanks so much for coming back to let me know. I am so glad that this works for you and you were able to modify the recipe to fit your dietary needs. It’s so helpful because there are others just like you who will benefit from your experience. Big hugs!!

    YUM!!!! I made these cookies yesterday, and I love them! I used palm oil shortening instead of butter, and they were just as delicious (they just didn’t spread at all while they cooked). I love that these were easy and didn’t require too many ingredients. Thanks for the excellent recipe!

    @Laura, Glad you like the cookies – and thanks for the substitution information. These cookies don’t spread too much, but they always spread a little for me. :)

    Hugs,
