15-minute Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

The blame for these cookies being a constant presence in my home is placed on my cousin, who texted me the recipe a few weeks ago. I made them quickly while I cooked dinner, and several more double batches pop up every week.

We are obsessed.

They're also friendly for my gluten-free and dairy-free friends! A rare win for us all.


You're going to need to make a double batch.



15-minute Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies


Ingredients:
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 350. Line a baking tray with parchment. (Or don't. It's not the end of the world).
Mix all ingredients well. Roll up 1-2 tablespoons of dough into a ball, place on tray, and press down gently with a fork.
Bake for 10-13 minutes.
Eat. Eat them all. NOW.

  2. Leanne, I just stumbled upon these on Foodgawker. I wish I could take a huge bite out of one right now! Luckily, they only take 15 minutes. Who knew peanut butter cookies were so darn easy? The look great!

  3. Just made these with "organic" (or what have you) peanut butter (just peanuts and salt!) and dark chocolate chunk chips. They're not as pretty as yours, but they're delicious!

    2. How did you get the peanut butter (well, out of the jar first!) to mix? I had to heat mine up in the microwave. It may just be my brand, though?

  5. So cup of sugar in your diet is a win hunh? How nice for you. I cant fault the lack of gluten though.

    3. I LOLs at this comment. They are cookies for a reason, not health foods! But they look yummy. I plan to try them next week!

  6. I tried this with EnerG egg replacer and it didn't quite work. The dough tasted great ;) (though a little on the rich side for me)But when I took them out of the oven and tried to remove them from the baking sheet they just crumbled and fell apart. It could be because of the substitution I made though. Happy eating :)

    1. Update! turns out I just needed to have a little more patience waiting for them to cool. After about 10 minutes they came off the baking sheet nicely. they are still a little fragile but look great! They're a little too sweet for me but that might be because I used special dark chocolate chips instead of semi sweet.

    2. That's wonderful! Even crumbled cookies are delicious in ice cream, so there's never a loss :)

  9. I made these last night. They tasted fantastic, but fell apart into a bazillion pieces. I don't know if I cooked them for too long, not long enough, or didn't mix them enough. I'll try them again because they're so easy, but don't know what I did wrong!

  12. I just stumbled across this blog while following your doughnut recipe... I have now spent close to an hour marveling and pinning and making a new grocery list! I plan to put on a little weight maybe, but I will enjoy every bite of it! Thanks for your awesome recipes!!!

  13. Thank you for sharing this! Found the recipe on LJ's bakebakebake - and I have to say that I love those cookies. So easy and so delicious - they turned up perfect each time I've done them, even when I experimented a bit.

  14. I made these last week and they were absolutely delicious but I have to ask, how did you manage to incorporate 1.5c of chocolate chips into the recipe? Were they minis? I scaled it back to 1 cup and I still couldn't get them all worked in, and some of the cookies were more like chocolate chips held together with a bit of cookie. lol Not that there's anything wrong with that. There was not a one left in the container and my son was thrilled with how much chocolate there was!
