Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (GF)

How long do you go without having a cookie? A few days, maybe a week? Don’t forget about that one you snagged from the office break room the other day. Did you throw one in your mouth as you packed the kid’s lunch last week?

Cookies. Easy to make, easy to eat. That’s why when cookies are in our house, they’re homemade with the most natural ingredients. I need a recipe that’s easy and quick, but delicious. I don’t have time to make mediocre cookies, ya know what I mean?

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup real butter, softened
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (or substitute with more butter, yeah, more butter!)
1/2 cup peanut butter, or other nut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 egg
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I but Enjoy Life as they’re free of soy, nuts, and dairy)

Preheat oven to 325 and place cooking stone in the oven. Once the preheat timer goes off, remove stone and coat with butter.

Combine flours, baking soda, and salt in small bowl and set aside.

In separate deep bowl, using a hand mixer, cream butter, applesauce, peanut butter, and honey. Add egg and beat until everything is mixed well. Add the flour slowly, and combine just until the cookie dough is entirely wet. Add your oats and chips and by hand mix well.

By the spoonful, add dough balls to cooking stone. Bake for approximately 9-10 minutes. These cookies are super soft coming out so allow them to cool a few minutes before placing on cooling rack.

What’s your favorite kind of cookie? Who doesn’t love the peanut butter and chocolate combo?!

  1. I find most of my gluten free flours at different grocery stores. I buy Bob's Red Mill brand. They're in about 1 1/2 lb. clear plastic bags. I have found them in the baking aisle, along with the “healthy food” shelf section. Then I store them in the fridge once I've opened them.
