So… the unthinkable happened. I ran out of flour!! Months ago (and I mean many months ago) I bought several – like a dozen or two – bags of flour for cheap. Sadly, I used the last of it two nights ago. Worse yet? We needed cookies!! Well, I use the word ‘needed’ loosely. I like baking. I wanted to bake cookies. So, how about a no flour cookie? Those of you living a gluten free life have probably eaten/made several. These were made with only a handful of ingredients so you can probably go and make them now. Go and make them now!
- 1 cup peanut butter (I used crunchy for extra oomph)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 F (170 C).
- Beat peanut butter until smooth (or at least smoother than when you started).
- Mix in sugars. Your mixture will look crumbly and dry.
- Beat in egg and vanilla.
- The 'batter' will be very thick. I used a small cookie scoop to place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet. Since this batter is workable, you can simply pull off pieces and roll into small balls.
- Because I like chocolate and peanut butter together, I pressed in 3-4 chocolate chips to the top of each cookie before baking.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes on until browning around the edges.
- Let cookies cool for a minute or two on the cookie sheet before removing to a wire rack.
- Warning!! These cookies are crumbly, but oh so yummy! Enjoy!
