I wouldn’t say these cookies are a completely guilt-free health food. But as far as cookies go, they certainly aren’t the worst.
You get some protein from the peanut butter, antioxidants if you choose to use dark chocolate chips and they are gluten-free. We’ll just forget about all that pesky sugar.
If you are the type that likes crunchy cookies then this recipe may not be for you. But, if like me you prefer soft baked crumbly cookies keep on reading.
1 cup chilled Natural Peanut Butter (nutty or creamy)
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup chocolate chips
* Natural peanut butter has a layer of oil at the top of the jar – I drain most of the oil off before chilling in the fridge*
Preheat oven to 365 degrees
Mix peanut butter, sugar and egg until dough is formed.
Incorporate the chocolate chips into the mixture
Form dough into ping-pong sized balls
Lightly flatten the dough balls and place onto a greased cookie sheet
Bake for 13-15 minutes
Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes then dig in!
