These cookies are in my top 5 all-time favorites! They are soo good and I like to call them guilt free cause they have no flour and no butter : ) I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
PS try not to eat the entire batch in one afternoon! ; )
Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies (Gluten free and Vegan)
Makes about 2 dozen cookies
What you’ll need:
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tbsp. cornstarch dissolved in 2 tbsp. water
1 tsp baking soda
½ cup extra dark chocolate chips
What you’ll do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips. When blended, fold in the chocolate chips. Form 1 1/2 inch balls and flatten into a pancake shape and place on an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake for 9 minutes. Let the cookies sit on the cookies sheet for about 30 seconds to 1 minute before letting cool on a wire rack.
is this recipe gluten-free?
Yum! This looks like a pretty basic recipe.. it’ doesn’t even have white sugar! Clean, simple and clearly delicious!
Yes, these are gluten free as well! Enjoy!
Yum!! These look delicious Leslie! I will definitely be trying these out 🙂
What is the calorie count for one cookie?
Wow! I am totally making these today! Thanks for sharing.
1 cup Peanut Butter = 1538 Calories
1 cup Brown Sugar = 766 Calories
1 large egg = 86 Calories
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips = 440 Calories
So 24 cookies would be 117 calories per cookie.
I love how simple these cookies are! I wonder if I’ll make it past the dough stage…
I had to try these because I couldn’t believe so few ingredients would turn into cookies. They did and they were so good and so easy, I’ll make them a lot.
Hi, I hope this isn’t a “stupid” question (I don’t bake often) but can I sub dark brown for light brown sugar for these cookies?
Lorie, There are no stupid questions! Yes you could sub it out. It is just a little richer with the dark brown.
I just made these and while they taste pretty good, I think they cookies are very fragile, they crumble at my fingertips even after letting them set for at least 10 minutes. My husband said the PB taste is a little overpowering. I did wonder at first how it didn’t call for flour. That said, not my favorite cookie recipe but definitely not bad either.
I wanted to update you that husband ended up taking all the cookies to work because it was not much his cup of tea. But they were a huge hit! I know his coworkers and they were all raving about how great they were! Thanks for making me a star baker =D
Oh, Michelle, I’m glad to hear that! I know these cookies can be fragile, but if you make them again, try a different brand of peanut butter, they all have slightly different consistencies.
What’s the carbs for these?
