When I started upping my recipe game again last week, my amazing, talented friend Joanna (the woman behind Wellness with Joanna) commented how happy she was to see me back in the kitchen. Her encouragement (always) means a lot since she is one bad ass healthy lifestyle powerhouse. If I can accomplish half of what she does when I am a mama of two I will consider myself a massive success. So with her prodding I figured I would just keep all the new recipes coming your way instead of hoarding them on my computer.
This version of my cookie recipe came about after our (seriously wonderful) friend Sophia took a stab at my Flourless Peanut Butter Coconut Cookies. However, since the peanut butter she used was runny (or perhaps non-stablized) they didn’t firm up they way she had hoped. Non-traditional/healthy baked goods can be finicky because when you are trying to cut ingredients out you are messing with the tride and true chemistry of baking. Also, the texture and consistency of goods such as peanut butter vary wildly which impacts the overall product when you are skipping the flour. So be patient with the product and be creative with the process. Anyhow, last weekend we had a lazy Sunday of church, binge watching the Jinx and baking. This afforded me ample time to find a solution to Sofia’s predicament by adding a little PB2 to my dough. However, during the process Jameson sweetly requested something with a hint of chocolate. So I threw in some chocolate chips and the result was pretty great. Enjoy! Continue reading “Flour-less Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies”
