Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

It's been a while since I've done any baking, which has as much to do with the heat wave we were engulfed in for much of the summer as it has to do with finding the time. However, the other day I came across a recipe for flourless peanut butter coconut chocolate chip cookies that I just couldn't resist. I've made a few minor variations to make these easy and gluten-free treats. I didn't miss the flour one bit. Very tasty and highly recommended.

That looks delicious Lisa - and flourless too! Can it be baked with sugar substitute as well?

Lisa said...

Thanks for dropping by Nandita. To be honest, I really don't know much about sugar substitutes, but probably it would work out well. What sort of sugar substitute did you have in mind?

Lisa said...

Now that I consider your question for two more minutes, I bet maple syrup would be an unique substitute for the sugar!

Lisa said...

Or honey. Perhaps an even better choice as a substitute, depending on the flavour you prefer.

Can you make some more, please? I only had about a dozen.

Hi there Lisa, my gluten free friend came over for dinner on Saturday, so I made your cookies and they were fabulous! I didn't use the coconut, but did everything else as per your instructions. They were super-moist, tasty and so incredibly easy to make. We were all trying to fit a second one in, despite being full, as they were so delicious. Thank you.

Hello Kathryn;

I really do appreciate your taking the time to let me know you and your gluten free friend enjoyed the cookies! Though I have no trouble with gluten myself, I hope to make and share more gluten free recipes here in future.

Lisa, I made these cookies over the weekend, to take to a friend's house. And I wanted to leave another comment, to again say thank you for posting this recipe. I've now made these cookies about 8 times. They've become my staple gift food recipe. And everyone loves them. It's a brilliant, brilliant recipe.
