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 come up with a flourless recipe.

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 processes gluten-containing products.

Instead of using butter in this recipe I used 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 just creamy peanut butter goodness! 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, but I also discussed ways she can view desserts differently.

These cookies may have different nutritional properties, but in no way am I saying to never have a regular cookie.  My nutrition philosophy believes all of your favorite foods can fit into your life. If this is something you struggle with I would love to help you find peace with all foods.

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