peanut butter flourless cookies

 Last night, at Natalie's suggestion, I tried a new recipe out. Peanut Butter cookies are a favorite here but I was venturing in new territory by not baking them with flour. These are the second cookies I have made without using flour and I must say, I am beginning to like the trend! They are still yummy delicious, soft and chewy as well. Go bake some today!

Peanut Butter Cookies from Real Simple


  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Heat oven to 350° F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, sugars, eggs, baking soda, and salt until smooth.
  2. Shape the dough into balls (about 1 heaping tablespoon each) and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Using the tines of a fork, flatten each ball, creating a crisscross pattern.
  3. Bake, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until puffed and golden, 10 to 12 minutes (the cookies will deflate as they cool). Let cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

(I always like to have some variation, so of course, I added Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips to about half of them!)
