Flourless cookies! Is there such a thing? Yes and they are delicious.
Before I baked these flourless cookies, I was a firm believer that a cookie had to have flour. How else would it hold its shape, I thought.
So after much trial, and even more error, I happened on this experiment with ingredients that I’m happy with.
They are super easy to make and pack a huge protein punch, thanks to the peanut butter, which might make them a healthier than regular cookie choice.
Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookie
1 cup of peanut butter
1/2 cup of Brown Sugar
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
2 eggs or to make the cookies, Vegan, 2 Flax “eggs”, which is 2 Tbsp of ground flaxseed with 6 Tbsp of water, mixed together.
1 tbsp of vanilla
This is important. Do Not Pre-Heat Oven. I found that if you do, the cookies burn first before they finish cooking.
In a bowl, mix together all ingredients and blend well.
On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, drop tbsp of dough onto sheet.
Place in oven at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Take care watching them so they don’t burn but are not undercooked.
Let cool on a wire rack before eating. This will help them set. The consistency of this cookie is slightly chewy, not hard or crisp. Store in an airtight container.
Hope you like them.
