Every now and again I get a strong craving for baked goods. By every now and again I mean every day at 3:00 pm. I usually have some chocolate, but I have been slowly picking away at Easter candy for going on 2 months now and it’s lost it’s novelty. So I adapted my flourless chocolate chip peanut butter cookies to create this delicious blend of rich ingredients. This is so easy and you most likely have all the ingredients you need sitting in your pantry. I know I do at all times.
1 cup creamy nut butter (I used peanut)
½ cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup cocoa powder
¾ cup chocolate chips
Combine the nut butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. Next add in the dry ingredients and lastly the chocolate chips. Spoon tablespoon sized balls onto a parchment paper lined sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8-12 minutes. Definitely stay nearby and watch these cookies. They usually cook fast and differently in every oven.
These cookies are small and easy to eat so they go fast. I have never doubled the recipe but I am sure it would work fine! Let me know what you think.
