We love peanut butter in the house, but who doesn’t, right? Better yet, who doesn’t love a really easy cookie recipe? With these flourless peanut butter cookies baked with rich dark chocolate chips, you’ll feel like you’re in peanut butter heaven without feeling too guilty about it. I mean, I know they’re still cookies and they have sugar (duh!) but without flour or butter, these cookies aren’t half bad as far as your health goes.
Considering I’m sick with a nasty cold right now, all I’m dreaming about is cookies. Illness will not stop my sweet tooth.
Ingredients (makes 12-15 cookies):
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tbs vanilla
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
First, cream together the peanut butter and sugars until creamy. Beat in the egg and add in the vanilla and baking soda until mixed. Mix in the dark chocolate chips. Roll into balls and bake several inches apart on a cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes until the edges begin to form and brown lightly. Because of the dark color of the cookie, you may not be able to see the browning but the middle will appear firm. If you touch the sides, they should feel like they’ve hardened, and that’s how you’ll know they’re done.
Let cool for several minutes and serve warm with a glass of milk. Seriously, I did not want to share these cookies, so I ate most of the batch myself. No shame! No flour, no butter, so delicious. Enjoy!
