FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE

 

At times I can have  the biggest sweet tooth and when I  get a crazy craving, it’s sooo hard for me to not give in. I’ve gotten smarter lately and decided to make some healthy alternatives so we both win. These cookies are killer. =] And of course they’re perfect, as long as you eat them in moderation.

Recipe:

makes approx. 12-15 cookies

  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup of honey or maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chunks
  • 1/4 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of almond extract
  • pinch of sea salt

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350° degrees.
  • Measure peanut butter and add to a large bowl. Mix with a fork until soft.
  • Add egg, honey or maple syrup, baking powder, almond extract and sea salt & mix well.
  • Continue to mix until all ingredients are completely mixed.
  • Fold in chocolate chunks.
  • I use a mini ice cream scoop to measure a small amount of cookie dough and then drop it onto a greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. They’ll look soft when you first take them out of the oven but once they cool, they will harden slightly.
  • Enjoy!
