Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Monday is not my favorite day of the week. I have a hard time coming back to work, especially after a fun holiday weekend. We went hiking and spent time at the Dewey’s. We enjoyed the pool, a bbq, fireworks, etc. It was a perfect weekend.

On Saturday while the guys were playing “blood ball” in the pool, I baked cookies. Josh was outside and the Dewey’s love peanut butter so I tried a flourless peanut butter cookie. No flour in a cookie? You read it right. I was intrigued too. The recipe called for peanut butter, sugar, baking soda, and an egg. How easy! Of course I had to play around a little, so I added vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and chocolate chips.

The cookies melt in your mouth. They are soft, delicate, and full of peanut butter goodness. I am glad I added the chocolate chips, everyone loved the peanut butter and chocolate combo. When I told the group there was no flour in the cookies, they were amazed. No one even missed it! I will have to kick Josh out of the house so I can bake these again:)

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from
Joy the Baker

(Printable Recipe)

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar (I used 1/2 cup brown sugar & 1/2 cup white sugar)

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray.
2. Mix the peanut butter and sugar together until creamy and smooth.

3. Add in the egg and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.

4. Stir in the salt, baking soda, and chocolate chips.

5. Spoon dough into balls, about 1 Tablespoon of dough for each cookie. Place them on the cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.

6. Smash with a fork and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let them sit on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes. Move to a wire rack and cool. Make sure you don’t overbake. They will set up and you want them to be soft.

    Have bookmarked this recipe; my best friend has to eat gluten-free, so I'm always on the lookout for great recipes for her. Love the pb + choc combo, good job with the adaptations.

    I've seen these no flour PB cookies around and have wondered how the dough handles. Yours looks good and I'm certain your additions made them even yummier.

    Glad to hear you had a great holiday weekend!
