Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies
I was craving something sweet but not with too many grams of sugar so I went hunting for a easy and healthier recipe and trusty old Pinterest came through. I found a couple of recipes but this one was easy and most of the ingredients were already in my pantry. It was Ambitious Kitchen, a peanut oatmeal chocolate chip cookie with no flour or butter. I of course tweaked it to my liking. Below is my version but you can click the link above for Monique's version. Keep scrolling for my take on the recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, mix together 2/3 cup oats, half teaspoon salt, 1 tbsp PB2 and 1 tsp baking soda and set aside. In a separate bowl beat 2/3 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup raw sugar, 2 large eggs and 1 tsp vanilla with electric mixer until smooth. Mix in dry ingredients with plastic spatula, then gently fold in 1/2 cup jumbo dark chocolate chips.
Roll cookies into 2 inch dough balls and place onto cookie sheet 2 inches apart, then flatten the top of the cookie and use your thumb to make a print and place pecan half on top. Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes and remove when edges begin to turn a golden brown.
Let cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 2 to 5 minutes. I didn’t have a wire rack so I removed them from the cookie sheet and place them on my counter on wax paper to continue to cool. Repeat with remaining cookie dough. Makes about 11 cookies.
