My flourless nut butter cookies have been so popular ever since I posted the first one over a year ago.

I think it’s not only because they are so easy to make, but because they really are a healthier cookie alternative. With no flour and no butter, they’re protein rich and very satisfying. I can honestly say that I prefer the flavor and texture of these cookies to regular chocolate chip cookies. These are absolute heaven right from the oven, with a brownie-like flavor and texture, and loaded with both chocolate and peanut butter chips. No empty calories here!

This is the first chocolate based nut butter cookie I’ve posted and I’m happy with how it turned out. The basic formula of a nut butter, sugar and egg based dough is quite versatile and can be easily tweaked into lots of different kinds of cookies. In this case the chocolate flavor dominates over the peanut butter for a nice change.

The color will vary depending on what type of cocoa powder you use…I just used regular, but you can use dark cocoa powder for a deeper, richer chocolate color. Here’s a great food stylist’s tip — after you scoop out the cookies onto the baking sheet and flatten them just slightly with your fingers. pop in a few extra chocolate chips right into the surface of the cookies before you bake them, that way you’ll get that ‘loaded with chips’ effect. They’ll look irresistible!

Cook's notes

These cookies are great eaten right away, and will soften a bit upon storage. If you are going to store them, I recommend covering them loosely with foil, as plastic will make them too soft.

    Can you use honey instead? I never eat sugar.

      Well, I think honey might alter the consistency of the batter so I don’t know for sure, Nita, I think you’re going to have to experiment to see.

    Just made these and the first few bites are yummy! Do you think these could be frozen to enjoy at a later date?
