flourless chocolate peanut butter cookies

I’m back with some healthy Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies! These are a great alternative to the regular flourless peanut butter which contain up to a cup of sugar. These are a great base for experimentation for flourless cookies and I already have other ideas running through my head that I can’t wait to try! These come together really quick too and within twenty minutes you’re munching on some tasty good for you cookies! I hope you enjoy them!

Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 1 Cup Creamy or Crunchy Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1/3 Cup Raw Agave Nectar (or less to taste)
  • 1 Flax Egg (1 Tablespoon Flax meal + 3 Tablespoons Warm Water)
  •  2 ½ Tablespoons Cacao Powder
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ Teaspoon Sea Salt (if you use regular pb omit the salt)
  • ½ Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350°F

Mix together the flax meal and warm water and set aside until it becomes gelatinous.

In a medium sized bowl, mix together the peanut butter, agave, cacao powder, baking soda, salt, flax egg and vanilla extract until well combined. The dough will be sticky and less like traditional cookie dough.

Coat your hands in a bit of oil and roll out tablespoon sized portions of the dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet (for easy clean up).

*I say to this because I have tried it by just spooning it on but it doesn’t create a nice round top for the cookie.

Bake for ten minutes (These cookies will crack a bit on top because of the substitution of agave but they will taste delicious!).  When you take them out they might seem like they’re not done yet but it’s important to let them sit for 8-10 minutes because they will harden.

Enjoy!
