{Grain Free} Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

July 5, 2012

I’ve been making more grain free choices in my personal diet lately, actually I’ve gone grain free for the past week and a half. I was having some health issues that have almost completely resolved by going grain free. Now, don’t misunderstand me, I’m not on a low carb diet of any sort, just limiting my grains and I feel better than I have in years. One thing I don’t like is the lack of sweets. We all know I love a baked good around here. Two nights ago I got adventurous and made cookies that my whole family loves. The coconut flour isn’t absolutely necessary but it does add a whole lot of fiber and leaves you feeling super satisfied after eating just one of these delicious cookies. You can find coconut flour anywhere Bob’s Red Mill products are sold (mine was just $3 at our local Allen’s).

These taste and bake just like they have regular flour in them – I encourage you to try them!

1 cup natural peanut butter
3/4 cup organic cane sugar
2 eggs
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup coconut flour (optional)
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 375. In a large bowl mix the eggs and sugar until fluffy and creamy. Add in the flour, baking soda and chocolate chips, mix well and then add the peanut butter until mixed through. Drop by tablespoon fulls onto a baking sheet, press slightly with the back of a fork in the middle and bake for 8-10 minutes.

Makes 18 cookies.

    I have been in love with coconut flour for a while! Also, peanut flour is really good (very good protein). Almond flour is another winner – I have seen a lot of grain free desserts/cookies made with almond flour. And of course, all of mine are Bob’s Red Mill :)
