Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate-Chip Cookies

I know, chocolate & peanut butter again. I know. It had to happen, though.

So, awhile back I had one of those days where chocolate chip cookies were seeming very necessary. My problem was that I had no flour. And also, no desire to load two children into the car to drive to the store. Now, I know most normal people in the midst of this scenario would just, you know, not bake cookies. I am not one of those people. I went on an exhaustive search for a flour-free recipe I remembered coming across in recent days, finding it on Baking Bites, a really fun blog I follow. Another plus? This recipe also does not require butter. Which was a good thing that day, since I didn't have any of that either. (Prepared! That's me!)

I adore these cookies. They mix up in minutes and are so, so easy. Because of the different composition of ingredients, they require a longer baking time, and I've found that a couple of minutes to set up on the baking sheet after removing from the oven is a must. The texture is unique, very crumbly and almost meltaway in feel. They're a different breed of cookie, in a very good way.

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate-Chip Cookies

1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar (you can use white or brown)
1 egg
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix all ingredient together, drop by heaping tablespoon on baking sheet and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.

I might have to try this very soon! I have all these ingredients on hand and actually want some cookies...You just twisted my arm!

You never have to apologize to ME for chocolate-peanut-butter overload! These look delish.

Just tried these...yum! :) One other nice thing about the recipe is the amount. So many cookie recipes make waaay too many cookies at once (especially for just two people). I got 23 cookies from one batch. I decided that wasn't enough since I'm taking them to share with a group, but I seriously think it took me less than 5 minutes to whip together a second, half batch.
