How to make Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies?
Cream together your peanut butter with the brown and white sugars, until they are light and smooth. Add in the egg and vanilla and stir together. Add in the baking soda, and salt and stir it all together till you have a nice soft dough. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
Scoop the cookie dough into 1 Tablespoon sized balls and roll them up to be smooth balls. Place them about 2 inches apart onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner. Then bake them in the oven until the edges are set and the cookies are a light golden peanut buttery color.
If the cookies didn’t flatten much when baking bang the cookie sheet down on the counter a couple times, and this will help them spread a bit more. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes because they are very soft and will break apart if you move them sooner. Then transfer them to a cooling rack to let them cool more, or enjoy them warm now!
Tips for making Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies:
- Since there are such few ingredients in this recipe, little things can make a big difference, like the size of the egg. I use a large egg, but they can still vary. But if your dough is more wet from a bigger egg, then you can chill it for a bit if it’s too soft to roll up.
- If your cookies don’t flatten as much as you want when they are done baking, bang the cookie sheet down on the counter a couple times, this will help the cookies flatten a bit and crinkle nicely.
- Top the cookies with extra chocolate chips when they come out of the oven to make them look extra cute.
