Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I picked up Peanut butter that has coconut in it and wow, you can actually taste subtle hints of coconut in it. This is a very simple and quick recipe as there is no flour or butter in making these which makes them Gluten Free.  These cookies are tasty, crisp and flaky on the outside and chewy inside.  Cooking Light :))  The recipe calls for regular peanut butter but Sprouts carry’s interesting brands and I had to try this Coconut version and I love it.
