I’ve always made my pb cookies with flour (See recent post for Peanut Butter Crinkle Cookies). I came across this recipe in my pile of ‘I should try these recipes’ (doesn’t everyone have one of these piles or drawers or binders….) and gave them a whirl.
With only 7 ingredients and one bowl these cookies come together so quickly you will be amazed.
All 2 dozen cookies were only a memory within about 24 hours so I’d have to say they were a hit! I added in honey-roasted peanuts but roasted salted peanuts or plain salted peanuts would be fine. I also chopped up Twix bites instead of using chocolate chips since I had a bag in my cupboard so don’t be afraid to sub in white chocolate chips or butterscotch chips or any combination you prefer.
Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 24 cookies. Preheat oven to 350F. Parchment line 2 baking sheets.
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup roasted salted peanuts
Beat peanut butter, sugar, egg, baking soda and salt until well combined. Mix in chocolate and peanuts.
Moisten your hands and roll about 1 tablespoon of dough into balls and place about 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Flatten slightly and bake 12-15 minutes until puffed and lightly browned around edges.
TIP: Check cookies after about 10 minutes. I find pb cookies often bake up quickly and every oven is different!!
