Are you looking for a new gluten-free cookie recipe? Or maybe you’re in need of a fudgy, rich, chocolate and peanut butter filled cookie. Either way, you are going to love my recipe for flourless chocolate peanut butter chip cookies. You won’t even miss the flour in this recipe, because these cookies turn out soft, moist, and filled with flavor.
My favorite part about this cookie recipe is that there is no chilling required between mixing the dough and baking. Cookies ready in 30 minutes? Yes please! If you’ve read any of my other cookie recipes, like my Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies, or my Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa Cookies, you’ll see that I usually recommend chilling the dough before baking. Because this recipe doesn’t include butter and the dough is thick, this step is not required.
For those with peanut allergies: Peanut Butter is a large part of this recipe, so this may not be the cookie for you. While I have not tested this recipe yet with other butters, you are welcome to try using almond butter or sun butter instead. You can also substitute chocolate or white chocolate chips instead of peanut butter chips. If you attempt any substitutions, let us know how it goes in the comments below!
