Gluten Free Spider Cookies Recipe

Know someone with arachnophobia? I have the best way to help them face that fear … cookies! This Gluten Free Spider Cookies recipe takes the fear factor out of spiders and makes them oh-so cute!

These are super simple to make and are a great little treat for Halloween parties, office gifts, to share with neighbors or friends, or just to get crafty in the kitchen to get in that Halloween spirit. Grab the kids or grandkids if you have them – they’ll love to help make (and eat) these sweets.

In my experience, it’s always a good idea to make and serve treats that are allergy friendly around Halloween, especially when you’re serving something as cute as these cookies. That’s why I used SunButter, a sunflower seed spread, in these instead of peanut butter.

That reminds me – have you heard of the Teal Pumpkin Project? This project is making people aware of the need for allergy friendly trick-or-treating. You put a teal pumpkin outside your home and that shows people that you’re passing out things that are safe for kids with food allergies.

  • 1 cup creamy SunButter

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the cookies are golden and set. Let cool on the pans.
