Ok, peanut butter cookies aren’t traditionally a Christmas cookie, but with all of the hustle and bustle of the holiday baking season, a cookie recipe made with ingredients already in your pantry is nothing to pass by. Oh, and they are AWESOME! And, gluten-free! Honestly, let’s just cut to the chase and go with magical, because I can’t figure out how a flourless cookie can have such an incredible texture like these. Seriously, they are crunchy and chewy and just plain addictive.
I’ve seen the recipe around, but until, I never believed they could live up to what a cookie is supposed to be. But, one day, I saw the cookies on an on-demand episode of 5-ingredient fix, and then a few days later, Brenda posted about them, and I knew it was time to make them myself.
Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar (I used 3/4 cup with Jif and 1 cup with the freshly ground)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-2 cups chocolate chips (I used 2)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix all ingredients together, except chocolate chips.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Using a small cookie scoop, portion dough onto prepared sheet, about 2″ apart.
Flatten with fork in a criss-cross pattern.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Cool completely before removing from pan.
