Grain-Free Peanut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Grain-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!

These flourless cookies are super easy to throw together – a new age makeover for an old recipe that was begging for an update. It’s hard to resist chocolate, coconut and nuts rolled into one delicious cookie and therefore – I ate two.

Ingredients

1/4 tsp salt

1 large egg white

1 cup peanut butter ( I used 3/4 cup of Earth Balance natural peanut butter with flax and 1/4 cup of Earth Balance creamy coconut and peanut spread)

1/4 cup of crushed unsalted organic peanuts

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup ground flax seed

1/3 cup sucanat or cane sugar

1/4 cup organic brown sugar

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

 

Instructions

{Preheat oven to 375 degrees}

  • Beat salt and egg white with a whisk in a bowl until frothy.
  • Add all of the other ingredients (except chocolate chips) and mix well.
  • Add in chocolate chips last until combined.
  • Using a small scoop, place 18 cookies onto a baking sheet.
  • Press the back of a fork across the cookie to leave an imprint and to flatten the cookie, repeat in the other direction.
  • Keep an eye on these in the oven because they cook quickly.  Once they’re light brown remove them from the oven (about 8 minutes).  Carefully remove them from the cookie sheet with a spatula and cool on a wire rack.
  • Cookies are best once they reach room temp.  Once cooled, they aren’t as easy to break apart and the flavor changes as well – it’s worth the wait.
  • Approximately 13 carbs/ cookie.
