Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don’t know about you, but I like to have a cookie recipe on hand that takes less than 30 minutes from the time that I start gathering the ingredients to the time that the cookies are coming out of the oven. While I suppose it depends on how long it takes you to gather together your ingredients, these flourless peanut butter chocolate chips cookies are just that recipe. 7 ingredients and 1 bowl. . .that is all!

Plus, they contain peanut butter and chocolate. . .one of the best combinations for cookies! If you have a divide in your house over whether crunchy peanut butter or creamy peanut butter is the best, this recipe is easy enough that you can make a batch of both and make everybody happy! :)

Oh, and if you are cookie dough eating kind of person, this dough is for you! Highly addictive. . .you may not get 2 dozen cookies. . .just letting you know. . .

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: approx. 2 dozen cookies


  • 1 C no-stir natural peanut butter, crunchy or creamy
  • 1/4 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar substitute or sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, beat/stir together peanut butter, brown sugar, sugar substitute, baking soda, salt, and egg until well-combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and lightly flatten the tops. Place on cookie sheet.

  5. Store cookies in an airtight container.
