Is there anything peanut butter can't do? Think about it, when it comes to baking up delicious, delectable treats and desserts, peanut butter is like the Swiss Army knife of ingredients. Whether it's adding flavor, softening texture, or simply binding ingredients together, peanut butter can really do it all. And when it comes to gluten-free baking, it can even act as a replacement for flour.
Take, for instance, the chocolate chip cookie. Perhaps the most popular cookie in most of our kitchens, these mouth watering treats have nearly always been made with traditional wheat flour. But, with a quick substitution, you can actually have all the great taste, texture, and enjoyment of chocolate chip cookies without any of the gluten! That's right, we're calling in our Organic Peanut Butter Powder from off the bench to bring home a win in your home, and this is the perfect recipe to do just that! Grab your apron, it's time to bake up some Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!
1 cup Honeyville Organic Peanut Butter Powder + 1/3 cup Water
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
First, re-hydrate your peanut butter. To do this, add powder and water and mix together until a thick peanut butter forms.
Place peanut butter and brown sugar in a large bowl and cream together until smooth.
On a low speed, beat in egg and vanilla until completely combined.
Next, add the chocolate chips and mix evenly.
On your USA Pan Cookie Sheet, lined with parchment paper, take a spoonful of batter, roll it up as best you can, and place on sheet. Keep in mind that the batter will be very, very sticky!
Place in oven and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Remove, and allow to cool before serving.
These cookies bake up to perfection with the most amazing surprise on the inside! While the outside remains crisp and tasty, one bite and you'll discover a soft, creamy inside that will make your knees weak and your taste buds dance with excitement. The peanut butter holds everything together perfectly and gives these cookies the right amount of flavor without completely overpowering the dish. Trust us, this is a cookie you'll want to make again and again.
Yes, there's nothing that our amazing Powdered Peanut Butter can't do, especially when it comes to creating delicious cookies!
