Everyone has their ‘fixes’ that solve anything. For some people, it’s coffee. For others, it’s chocolate, a prayer, a favorite song, or a hug.
For me, it’s peanut butter. I’m completely serious. Peanut butter has a way of fixing things. If you don’t believe me, take a look at these cookies.
So when a plain chocolate chip recipe goes horribly wrong, it’s only natural I turn to the peanut butter fix.
Archimedes must have been thinking about these cookies when he stepped into the bath since we both had the same reaction:
Peanut butter aside, these cookies are completely gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free.
The hardest part was trying to hide how healthy these goodies were to my pro-junk food taste testers. Usually, when I am so excited about a recipe and am shoving the food in their faces, they tend to get suspicious.
Despite their piqued healthy-food-is-gross bias, they took a bite… and began dancing around Syracuse shrieking, “EUREKA!”
… In truth, they widened their eyes, smiled, and nodded, which is equivalent to the same thing!
The recipe is so easy, it doesn’t take an Archimedes to bake these.
Warning: These cookies are addictive!
