Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Flourless chocolate cooies via abeautifulmess.comIf I see flourless anything on the menu, I’m likely to try it. I love flourless chocolate cake, so I’ve been working on a chocolate chip cookie recipe this past month. This recipe is WAY easy to make (only six ingredients), and I love the soft, but not overly gooey texture it creates.

Flourless chocolate cooies via abeautifulmess.com I also think these are super flavorful! Usually it’s the chocolate that you focus on in chocolate chip cookies. But for these, I think the batter is just as attention-grabbing as the chocolate. 

Flourless cookies Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies, makes 20-22.

1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi sweet or dark chocolate chips
sprinkle of sea salt for the tops (optional)

You can use all peanut butter or all almond butter in this if you prefer. It won’t change the texture or bake time. But I like using two different butters as I feel it adds a little more complexity to the overall flavor.

Drop spoonfuls of the batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Hurry, or else you’ll end up eating the batter by spoonfuls (or maybe that’s just me). Sprinkle with a little sea salt if using.

Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes. The cookies will begin to brown on the edges but will still feel soft to the touch. Move to a cooling rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes before consuming.

  • I’ve never made cookies without flour, but these looks tasty!

  • These are so delicious! I was craving peanut butter cookies so I made these tonight! 🙂

  • These look amazing! But how could a whole cup of almond/peanut butter be bad?!

  • In the Canaries we have the sun but not the almond butter, can we change for something else? Thank you!!

  • I would have to try these to see if I would actually like flourless cookies! Thanks for mentionning that we can use only almond butter instead of both….I’m allergic to peanuts (as well as all other legumes and soy). There’s a lot of really cool recipes out there (the vegetarian type) but I can only go the traditional way because I’m allergic to pretty much everything that goes into vegetarian recipes to give them an alternative protein (chickpeas, lentils, beans, peanuts).

  • This recipe looks delicious! I’ve been trying a few chocolate chips recipes this weekend (five batches!!!). I would have tried this one too if I had seen this post before! Well, that would have been way too many cookies!

  • OMG…this recipe is perfect for me being that I love chocolate chip.
    Must learn how to love yourself

  • I’ve seen people use peanut butter before, but never both peanut and almond butters! I’ve yet to try any flourless cookie recipes, but these look pretty fantastic!

  • These cookies turned out great, but they actually took me longer than 10-12 minutes to bake, and I used the exact recipe. I’m thinking it might be the brand of almond butter I used — I have Maranatha, not JIF, which gave the batter a liquidy consistency. It took me over 20 minutes to bake, even after raising the baking temperature.

  • These look gorgeous! definitely giving these a go x

  • I made these last night with homemade almond & peanut butter. The dough was VERY runny, however, they cooked well; a little flatter than your pic. They taste fantastic and of course are delicious w/some coconut milk 🙂

    Thanks for posting something that is GF & dairy free. I always love seeing your recipes (especially dessert), but often can’t wait them!

  • These look great! I’m always looking for flourless recipes and LOVE that this one has such a short ingredient list – can’t wait to try them!

  • These look SO good! And great as they’re gluten free!

  • Beautiful in its simplicity. I am always looking for gluten free treats for my friends. This one is on my list. Has anyone ever tried substituting the PB out for something else? More almond butter or sunflower seed butter or coconut oil? I am allergic to peanuts.

  • These look incredible, I need to get my hands on some nut butter to make them!

  • This could not come at a better time, since I’ve just given up gluten for Lent! Technically I’m supposed to have given up sugar as well, but I quickly realized I should just commit to “eating less sugar” haha.
