Two Peas and Their Pod: 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.

I almost made these (or similar recipe) last week because we have some neighbors who live gluten-free. I chose brownies instead, but WOW--these look great and I just might have to make some up! Yours look perfect!

That's actually my favorite PB cookie recipe. I call it the 1-1-1 so I can remember how much of what :)

Nice addition of the chips, and the vanilla... never have too much of a good thing.

Now to the real question... what the flip is 'bloodball'?

6:03 PM  
Blogger Bunny said...

Your cookies look fantastic, I love it that you added the chocolate chips. I have a flourless pb recipe to that when people eat it they are just amazed that there's no flour in them! Fantastic cookies!

These look perfect!! Can I use my natural PB, or should I go with the processed stuff?

I have seen people make these, but I've never tried them myself. I love your addition of the choc chips!

Everyone is curious about "blood ball." It is just what I call the guys game of basketball in the pool. They get very wild and vicious. Usually someone ends up with bruises or some blood shed. That is why I baked cookies:)

Katrina-I need your flourless brownie recipe. Sounds great!

Aimee-You can use natural PB. Make sure it is stirred well.

WOW! Holy cow do those cookies look fantastic! My goodness.

I don't blame you for not wanting to play blood ball. That doesn't sound fun. Or safe.

Yum! My friend makes cookies like this but never puts chips in them. I always thought if I made them, I would add chocolate chips. :o) They look delicious!

I have made these many times and love them. My recipe was just 3 ingredients. PB, sugar and egg. I've added a touch of vanilla before but never chocolate chips. I've also made them with half Spenda for the sugar. It's our "diet" cookie. LOL The only problem with these cookies? I always have the ing. around so my daughter would always ask to make them.
