Flourless Peanut-Chocolate Cookies

You won't miss the flour or the butter one bit in these chunky, nutty, sweet-salty standouts. Gluten-free never tasted so good!

    Excellent recipe. Easy and if you follow directions exactly they turn out perfectly. Love the addition of the peanuts and chocolate chip to a old stand by cookie. It a keeper of a reciipe.

    Does anyone know if these freeze well? I'd like to make them ahead for a party.

    I have the Cookies app on my iPad with this recipe and the cooking times are different. My iPad recipe shows 14-17 minutes for cooking. I made these and baked them for 15 minutes and they are great. I'm not sure why it's different here but it's a good recipe

    Despite the lack of flour, this is NOT a low carb recipe. Using a site like, it is easy to figure out that 1/24th of the recipe is worth 140 calories and 14 grams of carbohydrate. That's like one slice of bread with a tablespoon of peanut butter on it. So watch your portion sizes! (using the splenda cuts the carb in half, but I'm not sure if the resulting cookie would be that good)

    this is amazing, I knew that the soda and the egg would make it puffy and hold it together but i still had my doubts. they are great now my colleague who is gluten intolerant who always misses out on morning tea can join in!

    This is a wonderful recipe for those of us watching our carbs. I used Splenda, but otherwise followed the recipe, and they were wonderful. Thanks for the recipe!

    This was a hit thanks for the easy recipe. I didn't have peanuts and used chunky peanut butter turned out well.

    These are great! Especially for our gluten free family. If you use an organic peanutbutter that is thicker then I would suggest smashing the balls down a bit with a water glass. I've also made these with sunflower butter instead and no peanuts and they are also a big hit at our house!
