Gluten Free Low Glycemic Peanut Butter Cookie, no grains

Hi everyone,   This is a super easy, no grain cookie that turns out soft and yummy!!  The cookies raise and get bigger so a small spoonful will make a nice sized cookie.  I like to add flax for the extra Omega 3's but it's optional and the cookies are great without it. Hope you enjoy my Gluten Free Low Glycemic Peanut Butter Cookie!   big hugs,  Ali
