Peanut Butter Cookies- Gluten Free

These cookies are AMAZING!  I promise you won't miss the gluten/flour.  I don't think I'll ever make another PB cookie again.
Photo from original recipe

1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt (I used 1/8 tsp because I used salted peanuts)
3/4 cup chocolate chips (I used a bit less- they don't even need chocolate chips- probably won't use next time)
1/2 cup crushed peanuts (I used a bit less)

Stir pb, sugar, egg, baking soda, and salt together. Add chocolate chips and peanuts. Roll into small balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.  (I did 13 mins). 

I was able to make 27 cookies.
