Grandpa John's Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies



I had the best grandpa.

From Grandpa, I learned how to be frugal. When we would go to Sam's Club (partly for the groceries, mostly for the free samples), he would always buy us a big pop right when we got there. He always advised us to drink it fast so we could get a refill, and as we walked out the door, he would say with a wink,

"Save that cup so you can get a free one next time."








Free samples were never to be passed up. One day at the store, he walked up with a grimace on his face and said, "Don't try the white chocolate samples, they're awful."

He pointed over his shoulder to a basket labeled in bold letters "SOAP CHIPS".






He always ordered his McDonald's fries "extra hot", and if he was going to Raggedy Ann's for a Silky, you knew you could find him at Wendy's eating a Frosty.

When I used to check my email, I would usually have one from Grandpa saying, "Here's a nice pair of shoes" or "time to start thinking about spring" and I would open the link to find a pair of ridiculous 8 inch neon heels or a gigantic $300 Easter hat made of ostrich feathers.

On a cold spring day like today, he would be sitting on his magically warm porch getting a tan, with a piece of cardboard folded over his nose so he wouldn't get burnt.






Grandpa loved peanut butter cookies.

The very thought of them would wake him up at 5:30 in the morning. He would turn to my grandma and ask, "Do you think I could get a cup of coffee and some peanut butter cookies?"






These were his favorite cookies. You could never arrive at Grandma and Grandpa's house without one being offered to you. Grandma developed the recipe long ago when Grandpa was diagnosed with celiac and has been making them ever since.

She has been known to add milk chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and pecans, and also to dip them in melted chocolate. I have been known to trash them up with chopped Reese's Cups and Reese's Pieces. But no matter how I eat them, I will always remember my dear grandpa with every bite.

  2. Keto X Factor Lower calories-per- quantity should in my own opinion be on the top of the list. In my experience, the higher the volume of foods allowed to take in during dieting intervals, the better the probabilities will be for a person to stick to the weight loss program.

  15. Great post. You raise such an excellent thought. As we flatten everything and collaborative work becomes available to option out to the lowest virtual producer, what will this do to our communities? I think in the interests of efficiencies we make cultural choices, but we often fail to assess the long term implications of such choices. Hr Manager,
