Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Valentines Day!

“All you need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt” – Charles Schulz.  ⁣

These flourless chocolate chip cookies will change your life.  I promise! ⁣

Today I am sharing with you my flourless chocolate chip cookies!  My bf is a major fan of my regular chocolate chip walnut cookies.  Since I’m always experimenting in the kitchen I decided to nix the flour and butter this time. 

I’ve already established in my apple nachos post that I love peanut butter and chocolate.  So of course these crumbly cookies contain both! 

In this recipe I used oats to replace the flour.  If you are gluten free make sure your oats are labeled as gluten free.  Some brands may be made in a facility that also process gluten containing products.

As for the fat in the recipe I replaced butter with peanut butter.  My favorite brand is Santa Cruz Organic.  Their peanut butter contains only roasted peanuts with a tiny dash of salt.  That’s right no added oils or sugar! I literally put their peanut butter on anything and everything I possibly can.

Why am I replacing traditional cookie ingredients?

Well recently my aunt requested that I come up with a “healthier” version of her favorite treat, chocolate chip cookies.  Being the good niece I am I created this recipe especially for her.  Although I must say this recipe will definitely be on rotation at my house.

How are you spending Valentines Day?  Are you making anything yummy?
