Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Updated on September 14, 2014

Chocolate chip peanut butter flourless cookies

I originally found these as an online recipe a few years back and had tweaked it a little bit to add different combinations and ingredients. It's a very simple recipe that is completely flour and dairy free. The cookies come out firm, but not too hard. I haven't figured out how to make these cookies soft and chewy, yet, if you like your cookies that way. Unfortunately, I've found that eggs bother me now, so I will have to find a good recipe that is eggless. I've found a few to try out and if any work for me, I will post tips on how to make your cookies that way if you need to.

I have used both crunchy and smooth peanut butter and both came out very well. I've only used natural peanut butter, so I can't say if other types of peanut butter make a difference, but I have a feeling that they would make the cookies taste too sweet.


  • 1 cup peanut butter (any kind; "natural" types works best)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup chocolate or carob chips (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (any kind, optional)


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients together well. Egg should be beaten before adding, though I am lazy and don't do that when I make them and they turned out fine.
  3. Use a tablespoon to spoon out mixture and place them about an inch apart on the ungreased cookie pan.
  4. Flatten cookies with a fork.
  5. I placed my pan on the middle rack or the rack just below the middle rack and I liked the way they came out in my oven, but you may have to adjust the racks in your oven to get your best results.
  6. Bake about ten minutes or until they turn golden and the chips, if added, melt to the desired amount.

I like to use classic cookie pans. This one is non-stick.

While you're ordering bowls and pans, how about adding some measuring cups, too?


So, how did you like them? Did you make any modifications?

      Thanks. Actually, I think this cookie is crisp, but not hard.

      @pawpawwrites I actually found a peanut butter cookie recipe that is totally egg, dairy and soy free and tastes great! But, it has flour, so it's not good for celiacs or people with wheat allergies.

      Sounds good to me. I'm a sucker for any cookie, flourless, or otherwise.

      Everyone! I found a vegan version of this and it tastes really good! I will make a new hub about it, soon.

      @MelRootsNWrites: I checked out a few other recipes that manage to not use eggs, but use other ingredients instead. I haven't tried any of them, yet, though.

      These look really good! I am vegan and don't do eggs. I wonder if egg replacer would work?
