C + PB = Goodness

***UPDATE - Almond butter is just as delicious with this recipe as peanut butter!

Hiiii everyone!

I have a delicious and easy easy easy cookie recipe for you all.  Anything with chocolate and peanut butter  is game in my book so if you like that combo you will LOVE these. They are also gluten free which is nice to have such a delicious cookie recipe in your arsenal that is gluten free since more and more people are removing gluten from their diet. (I'm thinking of you Caitlin & Julie!)

I busted out the dough and baked all the cookies in under an hour on Tuesday night, it was great. And I'm willing to bet you all already have the ingredients. Enjoy!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies via With Style & Grace

Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
Adapted from Epicurious then slight adapted from With Style & Grace
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter 
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray baking sheets with nonstick spray.
In a medium bowl, mix together peanut butter, brown sugar, egg, baking soda and vanilla. Fold in the chocolate chips. With your hands, roll about a tablespoon of dough into a ball and arrange on the baking sheet(s), spacing 2 inches apart. Continue rolling the dough until it’s gone. If you make 1 baking sheet at a time, place leftover dough in the fridge. (I used two cookie sheets at a time and still need to do 1 more round of baking, but only using 1 cookie sheet on that 2nd round.)
Bake cookies for about 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden brown on the bottom and still soft to touch in center.
Remove and let cool for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks to cool completely.
