Flourless Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was highly skeptical. How the heck can you make cookies without flour, people? This was too much crazy-face for one boring Tuesday afternoon.

I was craving cookies, and my cupboards had a complete lack of flour, so any hope of baking was futile. I casually browsed my Facebook feed during the Manchild's afteroon nap, and lovely Miss Jessica over at My Baking Addiction had just posted a picture/recipe. My mouth was stuck wide open. I couldn't take my eyes off the word "flourless" and it's devilishly delightful grin. It was sign, I tell you.

Rarely do I have all the ingredients for a recipe to make it when I see it, but with an ingredient list like hers, and my severe craving for cookies, I honestly walked my laptop to the kitchen and started baking. With only a small amount of dough barely making it to the oven (dough addict), I waited in anticipation while the glorious smell of chocolate and peanut butter filled my home. They were amazing, and had just the right amount of everything in each bite. I think the next time I make these, I want to roll them in sugar before pressing them with a fork on the cookie pan. Then again, that would mean more sugar. Then again, they're cookies for crying out loud.


Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes about 2 dozen small cookies

1 C creamy peanut butter
1/4 C brown sugar
1/2 C granulated sugar
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 egg
5 T mini chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
2. In the bowl of your stand mixer, fitted with paddle attachment, combine peanut butter, brown and white sugars, baking soda, salt, and egg. Throw in chocolate chips.
3. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, place on a cookie sheet, and lightly press tops with a fork.
4. Bake about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to turn golden brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for a couple minutes, and transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Store cookies in an airtight container, if you haven't eaten them all already.
5. Repeat tomorrow.

  1. The recipe I heard years ago was even shorter - a cup of peanut butter, cup of sugar, and 1 egg. So easy to remember, and so yummy! Your's look delicious.

    1. That's even more awesome! I'll definitely have to try it the way you mentioned very soon(our cookies are all gone - why are they always gone?!) I also took a look over at your blog - you have some pretty amazing baking skills. I love it!!

  2. I'm so glad that you liked them! I like your idea of rolling them in sugar next time! :)

  3. Thanks again for the recipe/inspiration, Jessica!

  4. These look so good! I'm definitely making some...maybe before I go to bed!!! :)

    1. Hahah! That's the ticket! Thanks for the pin, as well.

  5. I've used the same recipe Rebekah mentions in the past, it works really well. The cookies turn out very dense and chewy though (a good thing if you ask me!). They're especially great for anyone with a gluten allergy.

    1. Good to know, Jim. Dense and chewy cookies are never a bad thing, too - as long as there's some milk nearby, right? :) Thanks for letting me know, Jim. I'll most definitely have to give it a try.

  6. I have a gluten free girl at my house so I am always looking for recipes to try. Can't wait to give these a try.I just started a new Finding the Pretty & Delicious Linky Party on my blog this week - would love to have you stop by and share! http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/finding-the-pretty-delicious-linky-party/

  7. You are my hero. My hubby and I are enjoying these simple and oh-so-delicious cookies as I speak/type! :-)

  8. YUM!!! going to make these dairy free too and use dairy free chocolate chips. excited!
    Thank you!
