Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I started off thinking I’d just make these for my mom and not eat any myself, because they use coconut flour and I hate coconut. In the finished cookie, though, I didn’t really notice a coconut flavor, and they were actually quite tasty!

IMG_4474The dough of these cookies is pretty dry, but you can press it together with your hands, and the baked cookies aren’t crumbly and dry.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips

In a small bowl, stir together the coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. In  another small bowl, mix together the egg, yolk, and vanilla.

In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter and brown sugar until well combined.

IMG_4452Add the egg mixture to the peanut butter mixture and mix well.

IMG_4451Sprinkle the dry goods over the peanut butter mixture and beat until just combined.

IMG_4453Add the chocolate chips and beat for another few seconds to mix them in. This kinda crumbled up the lumps of dough that had come together, but the dough would still back together if pressed.

IMG_4454Cover the dough and refrigerate for about an hour. Don’t leave overnight, as the dough will dry out too much.

Preheat the oven to 365 degrees and grease or line a cookie sheet. Scoop the dough into tablespoon-sized balls and pack the dough together in your hands.

IMG_4468Bake 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned.

IMG_4471Cool on the sheet for a while, then enjoy!

My name's Corinne, and I like cake, cookies, and chocolate! Also, non-c-things such as ponies, Star Trek, and biking. (Over the summer, my bike glove tans will probably become pretty glaring in some of these photos.) I'll be sharing my adventures in the kitchen. Expect lots of recipes to have chocolate swapped in to replace other inferior ingredients.
