Rich and decadent Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies are naturally gluten free and filled with two types of chocolate and creamy peanut butter!
I like peanut butter. And I like chocolate.
However, you put them together and real magic happens!
I know I know I just shared a peanut butter and chocolate cheesecake, but these are different! I promise! The first is a peanut butter spiked cheesecake with a hint of chocolate in the crust. And its meant to be shared, but I won’t judge if you consumed it all yourself. Its easy to do. I understand.
But today’s recipe is another attempt to convince you that you need sweets this holiday season! From sweet and salty marshmallow cookies to peppermint white chocolate blondies, we have another contender but its filled with peanut butter and chocolate!
Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies are rich. Rich as in you you better poor yourself a glass of milk to quench your thirst! But just because they are rich doesn’t mean they are indulgent and will blow your diet. They are flourless and butterless. The peanut butter replaces the butter and makes them extra chewy and the cocoa powder is what replaces the flour but is much more flavorful and what provides the richness!
And since I didn’t think one chocolate was enough, they are studded with mini chocolate chips! Winning!
Beyond these cookies, what could be anymore exciting than one of the largest cookie exchange parties?!
I made today’s recipe to partake in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! It brings together food bloggers from all over the world to celebrate with cookies and help a non-profit organization, Cookies for Kid’s Cancer to help funding new therapies to fight against pediatric cancer, which claims the most lives of children in the US than any other disease.
I packaged up these peanut butter chocolate cookies and sent them to three other bloggers, and I received three sets of cookies in return! It was so fun checking my front porch each day awaiting some mystery cookies from a new blogger friends!
I enjoy making cookies, but I enjoy connecting with my food blogging community and giving back to a great cause more! Especially during the holiday season!
Now go off, make some chocolate cookies, eat, and be merry!
Tools I used to make this recipe:
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup peanut butter
- ½ cup mini chocolate chips
- Preheat to 350°.
- Whisk powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in a large bowl.
- Then whisk in egg whites and egg just until combined.
- Add peanut butter and chocolate chips.
- Using a small cookie scoop, scoop batter by the tablespoonful onto silicon or parchment lined baking sheets, spacing 2” apart.
- Bake until cookies are puffed, cracked, and batter does not stick to your finger once touched, 14–16 minutes. (Mine were perfect at 15 mins.)
- Cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer to wire rack and let cool completely.
