Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies // Recipe

Today I thought I'd share a quick recipe with you all.  I made these for the first time this week and let me just say that between my husband and I, they didn't last very long!  These cookies are so insanely good and yet so simple to make!  The best part?  They're impressively low in calories since there's absolutely no flour or butter whatsoever.  You can't go wrong with a recipe like this. :-)


If you'd like to make these scrumptious, simplistic cookies, here's the recipe:
 
Gather:
▫ 1 large egg
▫ 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
▫ 1 cup peanut butter (I used crunchy for added texture)
▫ 1 tsp baking soda
▫ 1 cup dark chocolate chips (or milk chocolate if preferred)
▫ Pinch of salt (optional)

Directions:
▫ Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
▫ Mix egg, sugar, and baking soda in a bowl (be sure that there are no clumps of sugar remaining).
▫ Stir in peanut butter until thoroughly combined.
▫ Fold in chocolate chips.
▫ Scoop a tablespoon of cookie batter onto greased cookie sheet and place each cookie about 2 inches apart. Place cookie sheet in oven and cook for 10 minutes until cookie edges start to turn a golden brown. Don't overcook! The cookies may appear soft but will harden after cooling.

Note: don't be alarmed if the cookie dough looks like a large lump of peanut butter after all ingredients are combined. They will bake just fine. 😊
 
 
Have a blessed weekend, friends!

    1. You are welcome! You'll have to let me know if you try these. :-)

      The pregnancy is going well, thank you for asking! I'm feeling pretty heavy and large these days, but being pregnant has been an incredible journey. I wouldn't trade it for the world. <3
