Decadent Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

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:

“EUREKA!”

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!

Decadent Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups gluten-free oat flour
1 cup chickpea flour
1 cup coconut flour
1 cup olive oil
2/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup honey
3/4 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
4 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup dark chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients together and drop by spoonfuls onto a prepared baking sheet. Using a wet fork, make a criss-cross pattern, pressing the cookies down (they won’t spread much in the oven.)
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10. The cookies will firm up as they cool.
