Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies (gluten free)
Makes 20-24 cookies / Time to make: 20 minutes
These cookies seem really weird when you read the recipe (I’ve had a few readers email me and say “Is this a mistake? Where’s the flour?”) but it works beautifully, and makes the most delectable cookies; just perfect to end a casual meal.
- 1 cup peanut butter (check it’s gluten-free)
- 1 egg
- ¾ cup brown or raw sugar
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 85g dark chocolate, chopped into chunks (check it’s gluten-free)
Preheat the oven to 180C. Combine peanut butter, egg, sugar and baking soda in a bowl and mix well. Add chocolate chunks and stir to combine.
Roll small teaspoonfuls of mixture and place on a tray lined with baking paper, about 5cm apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned on top. Cool on the tray for a few minutes before removing to cool. These cookies have a soft, chewy texture.
