Today I'm sharing my flourless, chocolate chip, & peanut butter cookies!! NOMZ. I created this recipe one night when I had a mega craving for cookies, but I was lacking a handful of ingredients needed for classic chocolate chip cookies. I didn’t have flour or vanilla extract and I only had one egg. I also never buy “real” butter, so I made do with my dairy free butter. The cookies turned out pretty good, so I tweaked a few things and kept making them. It’s now my go-to cookie recipe and I thought I’d share with you guys! Since there's no flour, I always tell myself they’re healthy and maybe even eat a couple extra ;) Oh and the hubs loves them which is always a bonus! If you try making these cookies, let me know how they turn out!
can't resist the dough
1/4 cup butter- I use Smart Balance Original because it’s dairy free and contains no hydrogenated oils
1/2 cup of natural peanut butter- I like Jif Natural Creamy PB
1 large egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp salt- unless your peanut butter is really salty, then adjust according to taste
2 cups oats- I use one minute Quaker Oats
1/2- 3/4 cup chocolate chips- adjust depending on your taste for chocolate
You can also add cinnamon, vanilla extract, raisins, or anything else you’d like to spice them up- but this is usually what I use :)
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Beat the butter, peanut butter, and egg until smooth
Add sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt- beat until smooth
Add oats and beat or stir until fully mixed
Stir in the chocolate chips
Place on a nonstick pan... I have found that mine don't spread out too much when baking, so I place them pretty close together
Bake for 9-11 minutes and let cool
I have a tendency to over bake and I prefer my cookies on the softer end, so I only bake mine for about 9 minutes.
