This chocolate flourless cookie recipe was my experiment in the kitchen this week. They are pretty low sugar –as far as cookies go–and they received the thumbs up from my daughter, Chelsea. 🙂
You can see the one chocolate chip that tried to wander off… Ha! ^
These cookies were rich and hearty. For me, just one cookie fulfilled my chocolate craving. I love the savory (salted peanuts) and sweet (chocolate) flavors.
Most of you will have the ingredients to make these cookies on hand, so whipping up a batch is quite easy. The recipe includes: one egg, peanut butter, brown sugar, baking soda, salted peanuts, semi-sweet chocolate chips and vanilla…and the dough will be on the thick side–but feel free to add a teaspoon of vegetable oil if it appears too dry or is crumbly. I use natural peanut butter at my house (no hydrogenated fats or sugar) as I like the health profile better, but natural peanut butter can vary in oil consistency. If your natural peanut butter is its on the dry side, definitely add 1 teaspoon of oil to the dough.
You can sub in walnuts, macadamias, or pecans for the peanuts too. Get creative 🙂
