I’m probably the last person to jump on the flourless baking train.  I just couldn’t imagine how baked goods could taste good without flour, but these cookies have shown me the way.

Not only that, but they were super simple to make, used only a few ingredients {all of which I already had in the pantry}, and took just minutes to mix up.  This is the kind of baking I like to do.

Because when I have a cookie craving, I pretty much want that cookie right now.

I spotted this cookie on Sunday flipping through my Cooking Light magazine during a short road trip to my in-laws house. I snapped a picture while we were there of my husband and son, along with my father-in-law and grandfather-in-law.  Grandpa Ben is {almost} 94 years old, still lives at home, drives, works part-time at his church, and plays pool like a pro.  In other words, he’s pretty darn awesome, and we’re so lucky to have him in our lives.

When we got back home, I decided to give these flourless peanut butter chocolate chip cookies a try.  Since they didn’t require many ingredients and very little prep time, I figured there was no major time loss involved if they didn’t turn out.

Now I’m almost wishing they were a flop, because I ended up eating one straight off of the baking sheet and two more for lunch the next day.  Whoops.

You guys.  I can’t tell you how soft and perfectly salty, peanut buttery and chocolate-y these are.  I used Peanut Butter and Co’s White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter in mine.  It is my all-time favorite peanut butter and I always have a jar on hand {not sponsored!  I just really love it}, but any creamy peanut butter will do.

I tweaked the recipe just a bit – the original recipe called for just an egg white.  I wanted my cookies extra soft, so I added in the entire egg, plus a teaspoon of baking soda.  And also a bit of cinnamon, because peanut butter + chocolate + cinnamon = ohemgeegood.

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
 
Serves: yields 14 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (I used Peanut Butter & Co's White Chocolate Wonderful)
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  2. Lightly whisk egg in a medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients, though the baking soda, stirring to combine. Fold in the chocolate chips, and then chill the dough for approximately 30 minutes.
  3. Drop the dough, by approximately 1 tablespoon each, onto prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies for 9 to 10 minutes - they'll look slightly underbaked, but that's okay. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
  4. Makes 14 cookies; store covered at room temperature for up to 1 week.

    I honestly cannot believe there is no butter and no flour in these cookies?!? Can this be true!!!!! And like you said, I have everything right in my kitchen to make these now (Which is exactly what I plan to do!) I’ve always used Peter Pan Peanut Butter which I love and I hate to be a traitor but if your is so good….well, might have to try!!!!

    I hope 94-year-old Grandpa Ben gets a few!

    These cookies look pretty good but…how many carbs and could they be on a diabetics menu? The loss of flour would get them closer but the sugar…

    We just tried this recipe. The dough was a crumbly mess, and baked up nothing like the photos. Incredibly disappointed.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
