RECIPE: Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are delicious and easy to make, would make a great addition to Christmas cookies if you aren’t good at decorating cookies! That is not one of my strong points. Full disclosure, they do have sugar, but it’s ok to have a cheat item every now and then. Key phrase there, cheat item. Do go overboard, but don’t get too strict either. Try these out and see what you think!
Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
From: The Tasty Kitchen Blog
- ⅔ cups Rolled Oats (gluten-free If Desired)
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 cup Old-fashioned Peanut Butter (I Used Skippy Creamy)
- ⅔ cups Dark Brown Sugar
- 2 Large Eggs
- 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- ⅔ cups Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In small bowl, mix together the oats and baking soda; set aside.
In a large bowl, beat peanut butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla with an electric mixer until smooth, about 3 minutes. Mix in dry ingredients with a wooden spoon, then gently fold in chocolate chips.
Roll cookies into 2-inch dough balls and place onto cookie sheet 2 inches apart, then barely flatten the top of the cookie with your hand. The dough should be pretty sticky so if you find this method annoying, simply use a cookie scoop to drop the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet. The cookies may not be as round in shape and perhaps a bit thicker, but that’s okay, they will still be delicious.
Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes and remove when edges barely begin to turn a golden brown. The cookies may look a little underdone, but they will continue to cook once you remove them from the oven. Cool for 2 minutes on the cookie sheet then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining cookie dough.
