Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Naturally Gluten-Free! I also made a few other tweaks to accommodate dairy and egg allergies, which also happened to bump up the nutritional content!

I have no idea where this recipe came from, my aunt sent it to me several years ago and I just stumbled across it tucked away in a file. There is no name or publication on the recipe, so if this is your recipe, please let me know and I will give you full credit! 😀

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar

1 cup Peanut Butter (or substitute with another nut butter and I have also heard there is a pea butter called No Nuts Pea Butter.)

1 large Egg (I used Flax Seed Gel: heat 1 Tbs. Ground Flax Seed with 3 Tbs. Water over medium-low heat until you get an egg white consistency)

1 tsp. Baking Soda

1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

1 cup Chocolate Chips (I used 365 Brand Vegan Chocolate Chips from Whole Foods)

  • Stir together first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl, using a wooden spoon. Stir in chocolate morsels.
  • Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 350° F. for 12 minutes or until puffed and golden brown (cookies will be soft in the center).
  • Cool cookies on baking sheet for 5 minutes, remove and finish cooling on a wire rack.

Flax Seed Gel: the consistency really does mimic an egg white!

All the ingredients before adding chocolate chips

It was very cool to find dairy-free chocolate chips at Whole Foods!

These are DELICIOUS!

We absolutely could not tell I replaced the egg with flax seed gel! Added bonus: we cut back on some cholesterol and bumped up the fiber content!
