Flour Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

  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...

Flour Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies 

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.
