gluten-free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

My coworker is gluten and lactose intolerant.  It makes finding treats tricky for her.  This week was her birthday, and everyone deserves a treat on their birthday, amirite? 

I've been making her the same old double chocolate gluten-free and vegan cookies every time I bake for work, so I decided to shake things up. I've made a similar gluten free recipe before, but it had chocolate in it that was not dairy free, so I got some vegan chocolate chips and whipped these up.  They really are ridiculously easy.
