Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips
They’re GLUTEN FREE too!
These are quite possibly the easiest, most delicious cookies I have ever made. 5 simple ingredients and about 25 minutes is all it takes to make these peanut buttery wonders.
One word of warning though – you will want to be prepared with a tall glass of milk (I prefer almond*) – these cookies are VERY sweet!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Smooth Peanut Butter
- 1 Egg
- 2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
- 3/4 Cup to 1 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips (could also substitute butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips, semi-sweet chips, etc.)
- Mix Sugar and Baking Soda together in large bowl until combined.
- Add Peanut Butter and Egg to bowl.
- Beat on low briefly until dough is formed (will be sticky and pull away from sides of bowl easily).
- Pour Chocolate Chips into mix and combine with a spoon. Add 1/4 cup of Chocolate Chips at a time and eyeball to see when you’ve added enough. Take care not to add too many chocolate chips as the dough will not be able to stick together properly if there are too many chips.
- Using a medium sized spoon, scoop out enough dough to fill the spoon.
- Form a rounded dough ball and place onto baking sheet, gently flatten center of cookie once placed on the sheet.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 11 minutes.
- After removing from oven, allow cookies to stand on baking sheet for 1-2 minutes to prevent breaking when moving from baking sheet to cooling rack.

A Heart Handmade Blog Holiday Feature
Noelle is no stranger to Heart Handmade Blog. She was featured back in October for her pottery – Handthrown Pottery and submitted a holiday featurette request to show off her Poinsettia and snowflake inspired pieces.
You may have missed her deadline for Christmas shipping, but not to worry, these pieces are sure to brighten up your home throughout the cold winter months.
This is the recipe I use to make our treats at home. The result is a very hard, crunchy cookie – just the way our guys like ’em.
The directions suggest you leave the cookies to cool overnight in the oven, but if your canine companions simply can not wait that long – it’s ok to serve after cooling on a wire rack (they just will not get as crunchy).
I’ve found that these cookies stay good for about 1-2 weeks in an airtight jar. They also freeze well for up to a year. (more…)
I find inspiration in everything around me. Right now my biggest inspiration is nature. I’m living in a beautiful forest enclosed town, South Lake Tahoe, so a lot of my recent work is inspired by forestry and snow. By the beautiful Autumn surrounding me. When it comes to my fine art work, a lot of my inspiration recently has stemmed from my poetry. I’m working on a self-published poetry/photography book and each poem will have a photograph that has been inspired by it alongside.
