These Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies will easily become a new go-to cookie recipe for you! They are truly irresistable and unbelievably easy to make. They only require 6 ingredients, one mixing bowl, no mixer is needed and they can be prepared in under 10 minutes. Does it get any better??
You’ll love how the peanut butter flavor of these cookies is so pronounced because it isn’t hidden by the use of any flour.
Here you just use six staple ingredients – peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, baking soda and chocolate chips.
So in other words that are a great cookie to make any of the 365 days of the year!
These are rich and sweet, and they are chewy yet they’re soft and melt-in-your mouth at the same time.
If you haven’t tried flourless peanut butter cookies this weekend is definitely the time to try them – because weekends are for cookies right? And good cookies at that.
And I actually feel better about eating these cookies than a regular chocolate chip cookie – no flour and no butter so while they aren’t healthy they aren’t an all-out splurge either.
This is actually a recipe I’ve shared before and it had been a while since I made them and now I’m thinking to myself why did I break these out again??
Because now I’m going to be on a flourless peanut butter cookie kick for a while. These are just too good!
And they really are probably the easiest cookies you’ll ever make. You don’t even need to get out a mixer, or soften butter, or chill dough.
Just measure, mix, scoop, bake and voila! Pure magic.
Everyone will love them!
Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are the easiest cookies to make! They only need 6 ingredients that you likely always have on hand, a few minutes prep, and no mixer is required. And did I mention they taste absolutely delicious? Likely to become a family favorite!
- 1 cup (240g) creamy peanut butter (not natural)
- 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup (80g) packed light-brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup (170g) semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips (I like to use a blend)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, using a large spoon, mix together peanut butter, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, egg and baking soda until well blended.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop dough by the rounded tablespoonfuls (about 1 1/2 Tbsp each) onto prepared baking sheets, spacing cookies 2-inches apart.
Flatten each slightly. Bake one sheet at a time in preheated oven 10 - 12 minutes.
Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store cookies in a single layer in an airtight container, they are somewhat delicate so don't just toss them into a bag or they can break apart.
