{no flour} chocolate pb cookies {v,gf}

 My first attempt at a gluten free peanut butter chocolate chip cookie was sad. super dry. crumbly. (we're talking saw dust) Never what you are looking for in a cookie or dessert or food in general. So, back to the drawing board. Since I'm still struggling with getting coconut flour to cooperate (darn you coconut flour! you are my Everest!), I decided to try the next batch with no flour at all...HUGE difference! These were soft and chewy and peanut buttery and awesome!

A couple tricks: I found if you let them cool a minute or two, then stick them in the freezer for 3-5 minutes, they come off the pan easier. Once they're cooled (if there's any left) store them in the fridge. Bonus: no eggs or dairy. Snack away cookie dough lovers! snack. away.

  1. these look amazing!! can't wait to give them a favorite combo

  2. i forgot to ask...what type of peanut butter did you use?

    1. I think I used Trader Joe's natural pb. 75% sure that was it. Either that or Kroger's Simple Truth organic brand. I made this a few weeks ago and those are the 2 brands we rotate.

  3. Hmm these look comforting and scrumptious! I've been avoiding grains lately and have been yearning after chocolate chippers. So happy to find these! *tears of joy* Thanks for sharing Laura. :) BTW your blog is delightful!

    1. Thank you so much Gabriela. Glad the tears are happy ones! :)

  4. These look wonderful. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday. I am going to have to try them soon.

  5. What type of chocolate chips did you use? They look divine.

    1. Ghirardelli's 60% choc chips. They are amazing.
