Amazing Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Filed under: Gluten-Free, In the Kitchen — candid reflections @ 8:56 am

I have been on a baking kick this week.  Would you believe that these cookies are made without flour?  Yes, you heard me right, zilch!  And they are soooo delicious!


Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup all natural peanut butter (I use Adams – creamy, prestirred)

¾ cup sugar

1 large egg, slightly beaten

½ teaspoon baking soda

¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

½ cup roasted, unsalted peanuts

Preheat oven to 350º.  Line the bottom of a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.

In a large bowl stir together the peanut butter, sugar, egg, and baking soda, until combined.  (I used my Kitchen-Aid on low setting.)  Add chocolate chips and peanuts.  Scoop dough into teaspoon size balls, and place on baking sheet two inches apart.  Dough may be a bit crumbly but blends together nicely while baking.  Bake on middle shelf for approximately 14 minutes.  Cool on wire rack – cookies will be fragile while warm, but will firm up after cooled.  Natural peanut butter is best because it doesn’t have multiple ingredients which will interfere with  ingredients in this recipe.
