Flourless Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookies


These are the best flourless cookies I've ever made.  They are perfect & much healthier than 'regular' peanut butter cookies!  You wouldn't even know that they didn't have flour in them!  A great Gluten-Free option!  My family isn't gluten free but cutting out more unneeded grains is always something I don't mind doing! :)  You can make these with any type of peanut butter you like crunchy or smooth - the original recipe uses chocolate peanut butter.

Flourless Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookies

Ingredients
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg 
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a medium bowl, mix together peanut butter, sugar, egg, baking soda and vanilla. Fold in the chocolate chips. Roll about a tablespoon of dough into a ball and arrange on the prepared baking sheet(s), spacing 2 inches apart. Continue rolling the dough until it’s gone. Refrigerate any left over dough that isn’t being baked right then.

Bake cookies for about 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden brown on the bottom and still soft to touch in center.

Remove from cookie sheets and let cool for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks to cool completely.

I've heard of people using a flax seed and water mixture to substitute eggs. You'll have to look it up but that might be an option. :) Thanks for coming by and commenting! :-)

Looks so good! I'm going to try it with sunbutter since I'm allergic to peanut butter.
