These double chocolate flourless peanut butter cookies are made sans flour, gluten, refined sugar, and butter! They’re ooey gooey and taste like a cross between a peanut butter cookie and a brownie!
Hi hi hi hi hiiii!
I’m sitting on my couch right now (yesterday), chomping on one of these cookies that was waiting for me in the freezer. I’ve been gone for 23 days and it’s bittersweet to be home. I actually thought I would be a lot more excited to be back at home and working, but I feel like I’ve become accustomed to being gone. I’ve also grown to REALLY ENJOY spending 24/7 with Man Candy and am sad to be so far apart from him after 2.5 weeks together. Sappy sappy, but it’s just the truth! This was the first time Mark and I had traveled together and let’s just say we went big off the bat. Honestly, I wouldn’t have done it any other way- when you love someone you just have to jump right in. I’m so excited to blog about our entire trip abroad…going through the pictures makes my heart so happy!
I got back to Minneapolis on Sunday after spending 2 nights at my parent’s house following Europe. I’m really happy I decided to take those two days with my parent’s in Chicago before heading back to Minneapolis because I don’t get very much one on one time with them. Actually- Mark’s parents met my parents for the first time on Saturday. Our moms knew each other back when we were in high school, but our dads had never met one another. Mark and I have been friends since 2007 and it’s strange to me that our families hadn’t met yet! Anyways- I loved having everyone in one room (minus my sister and brother). I wish we could all live in the same place instead of a triangle (Minneapolis > Milwaukee > Chicago).
SO THESE COOKIES. Lin and I made 6 flipping batches of these damn cookies before I left for Europe to make sure they would be PERFECT for you. Also- we love cookies and any excuse to make more cookies is a good excuse.
These really do taste like a cross between a peanut butter cookie and a brownie. They’re grain-free, made with coconut flour, coconut sugar, all natural peanut butter, and DARK cocoa powder. If you are wondering why the cookies look dark brown, it’s because of the cocoa flour. Good thing for you- any kind will work, but I prefer the dark stuff! The flavor is richer and that’s the way I like it.
I’ve got a handful of flourless cookies on FFF (Grain-Free Peanut Butter Blossoms, Protein Peanut Butter Cookies, Paleo Cashew Butter Cookies, Inside Out Grain-Free Oreos, Paleo Hot Cocoa Cookies, High-Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies) and any of these can be subbed with any kind of nut butter you prefer. Obviously my preference is peanut butter. Duh.
VIDEO: Double Chocolate Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 eggs large
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ⅔ cup coconut palm sugar
- 1 tablespoons coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder but any kind will work!
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- sea salt sprinkled on top
- 1/3 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
- sea salt
- First preheat oven to 350ºF and spray a cookie sheet with coconut oil cooking spray. Set aside
- Place wet ingredients in a large bowl and mix until combined. Then, add dry ingredients and mix again until you've formed a cookie dough.
- Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scooper, scoop out dough. Then roll between your hands and lightly flatten (the cookies will not expand much). Place on cookie sheet and then top with chocolate chips and sea salt.
- Bake at 350º for 10 minutes. Let cool for at least 30 minutes.
These were so delicious. I made mine with almond and cashew butter and had a really hard time not eating them all right away!
Your recipes give me life!! Can’t wait to try this one!!! Where can I buy coconut flour though? I’ve never seen it at stop n shop
I’m not sure what Stop n Shop is, but you can pretty much find it anywhere in the baking and or bulk section. Amazon is a good place too if you really can’t find it!
Do you think that I could substitute sunbutter since I am allergic to tree nuts and peanuts?
One question more: do you think that this would work with PB2 powdered peanut butter to cut down on the fat? Or will it ruin the cookie?
It would definitely ruin the cookie. The stickiness of the peanut butter is essential! HEALTHY FATS BABY.
Cookies sound delicious. I have coconut sugar but not sure if there is a difference with the coconut PALM sugar? Can you elaborate? Will regular coconut sugar work? Loved your travel pics. Your Man Candy sounds like a keeper.
HIYAH! So sorry for the late response (I know you already made them)….coconut sugar and coconut palm sugar are the same thing!
Pb and chocolate will ALWAYS be the best combo known to man. These cookies look Ah-maz-ing! Dark cocoa is soooooo good!
I don’t even know what to say…all my favorites in one cookie…yes please! Have a beautiful day friend! 🙂
Thank you! You too!!! I hope you guys get good weather today 🙂
Looks delish, a combination of dark, intense chocolate with peanut butter = my kind of cookie! Your paleo pumpkin brownie is one of my favourite desserts so I can’t wait to try these!
Glad to have you back and hear about your travels, but sorry for the long distance 🙁 Are you planning on more trips to visit each other or a relocation soon? I have never done long distance and don’t know how I could make it work in the long run, so kudos to you both, you look so cute together! 🙂
The month of September is CRAZY for me! We have 4 weddings and 3 are where he lives. Other than that we’ve pretty much got the rest of 2016 planned out of when he’s coming here and I’m going there.
Wow, you’ll have a wedding-busy month! But so good you’ll be seeing Man Candy a lot, weddings are fun, especially if you’re there with someone you love 🙂 Have a great, eventful September!
YES. I love weddings, actually! Mark wore his Fit Bit to the last wedding we were at and we were at 25k steps! DANCE DANCE BABY.
I know! Dancing is probably my favourite part of weddings! Thankfully Boyfriend loves to dance, and I just love dancing with him at weddings until our feet hurt ;-D Have fun and dance a lot! 😉
It’s like you knew I’ve been craving something sweet! Haha. These look DELICIOUS. I tried a dark chocolate cookie once and it ended up being way too gooey and they all stuck together. I’ll definitely be trying these!
I hope these don’t disappoint! If they do- send your batch my way and I’ll eat em all 😀
