Flourless Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

My mother just left after 10 days visiting me here in Greece. One of a things I requested she bring was a big jar of peanut butter, because it’s really ridiculously expensive here. I can only imagine she’s not been getting enough gf baked goods since I moved away, so I made these while she was still here. If you’re ever looking for a recipe to make for gf friends that doesn’t require you to go out and buy all sorts of gluten-free-specific ingredients, this is the one for you!

IMG_9919Ingredients:

  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or mini chips

Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet (or two) with parchment.

Beat together the peanut butter, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt on medium speed.

IMG_9912Beat in the egg and vanilla.

IMG_9913Stir in the chocolate chips.

IMG_9914Scoop the dough in tablespoon-sized portions onto the lined baking sheets, and press gently to flatten. These will flatten a bunch while cooking, but if you help them out at the start, you won’t have a blob of uncooked dough in the center of a cooked cookie.

IMG_9915Bake 8-10 minutes, until slightly cracked on the surface, but not browned.

Using a second pan would avoid having these be all one blob. Sadly, we don’t have a second pan.

They flatten as they cool.

They flatten as they cool.

These were, as you might expect, quite peanut butter-y! Once they’ve cooled they firm up, but aren’t crisp – they’ll still bend a bit when you pick them up.

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.

    Wonder if I could do this with chia for the egg :)

    It’s so weird that King Arthur FLOUR would write a flourless recipe. But also kind of cool. Those look good.
