Ok, so we were all in love with the oatmeal peanut butter cookies, but after finding out Jack is also allergic to both rice and oats, we were in desperate need of a new cookie! I tried several, including a cornmeal almond cookie that was god-awful. But I found several sites with flour free peanut butter cookies and I decided to give them a try. Boy am I glad I did!
These were pretty crumbly the first day but the second day these were absolutely perfect! This recipe is ridiculously simple and so yummy...
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 Tbl flax meal + 3 Tbl hot water
1 tso baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup vegan chocolate chips (Enjoy Life)
Preheat oven to 350.
Stir together peanut butter, sugar, flaxgel, baking powder, and vanilla. Once well mixed, stir in chocolate chips. Roll into 1-1.5 inch balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Flatten cookies as they will not spread. Bake for 12-17 minutes, until golden brown. Cool on sheet for 5 minutes, then remove to wire rack and allow to cool completely.
