Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (Flourless)

There's little in the world of sweets better than the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. Whether a firm believer in natural, creamy, chunky, or super chunky, if you're a peanut butter lover, you'll love these cookies. No crazy ingredients. Very easy to pull out of your bag of tricks if you ever need a quick dessert for guests, something to bring to a potluck, or just something to make out of items in your pantry on a lazy Saturday afternoon!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Bake Time: ~14 minutes per sheet
Yield: 2 dozen

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup peanut butter (I prefer no sugar added, the chunkier and the better)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, semi-sweet
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix ingredients together with a wooden spoon until well combined.
  4. Spoon 1 tablespoon of mixture about 1 inch apart onto parchment lined baking sheet (should fit 1 dozen per sheet).
  5. Flatten mounds with fork (imprint won't be as apparent as peanut butter cookies without chocolate chips but the idea is there...).
  6. Bake until golden around the edges, about 14 minutes.
  7. Slide cookies (while still on parchment paper) off onto cooling racks.
  8. Enjoy with a glass of milk!
