Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

I think the original version of this recipe came from Bon Appetit many years ago. To be honest, I was planning on making my grandmother's old fashioned peanut butter cookies today but I didn't have any flour and didn't feel like walking to the grocery store! So I made these delicious cookies instead.

They are quick and simple and great for those trying to avoid flour. You can add 1/2 cup of peanuts or use crunchy peanut butter if you want some extra crunch.
1 cup peanut butter (not natural)
1 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips

What to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1. Mix all 5 ingredients in a bowl until combined.
2. Drop by tablespoon onto cookie sheet lined with silpat or parchment paper.
3. Bake for approximately 10 minutes.
4. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.

Makes approximately 20 cookies. Enjoy!


  1. I love flourless cookies! I'm for sure going to put this recipe on my "must-bake" list! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. These cookies look delicious...and no flour. I need to try this! Except for macarons, I don't think I've ever made cookies without flour. Luv the idea!

  3. Why not natural?
    I actually just made a very similar recipe using natural peanut butter, so I'm curious about the difference. Does it change the texture?
    Thanks :)

    1. Natural peanut butter can have runnier consistency and will not hold its shape as well in some baked cookies....but if your brand works then great!!!
