Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies - only a few ingredients and gluten free! the-girl-who-ate-everything.comWe were invited last minute to a friend’s house for dinner and I didn’t want to show up empty handed so I literally threw these peanut butter cookies together in under 5 minutes.

These are practically like drinking a protein shake since they contain peanut butter but don’t have any flour or butter in them. Gluten-free!

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies - only a few ingredients and gluten free! the-girl-who-ate-everything.comI’m big on texture…these were perfectly chewy and melted in my mouth. I love quick treats like this that you can throw together especially during the summer when we always seem to have spontaneous BBQs and my kitchen isn’t always stocked. Enjoy your “protein shakes”.

5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Prep Time
22 hrs 3 mins
Cook Time
22 hrs 3 mins
Servings: 1 dozen small cookies
Author: Christy Denney
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips. When blended, mix in the chocolate chips. Using your fingers, form 1 1/2 inch balls (dough will be very wet and sticky) and place onto an un-greased parchment lined cookie sheet. You don't want to make them too big because they do spread. Bake for 7-9 minutes. Let the cookies sit on the cookies sheet for about 30 seconds to 1 minute before letting cool on a wire rack. Don't let them cool on the sheet or they will overbake. The key to these is to not cook them too long! Makes around a dozen small cookies.

I used my mother-in-laws food processor last week to turn cookies in to crumbs for a cheesecake bottom and what had taken me two hours to do by hand the week before was done in about 5 minutes!

  93. Made these tonight. Couldn’t be easier. They are very sweet but yummy. Perfect with a cold glass of milk.

  94. I can’t wait to try this recipe. It sounds YUMMY! Thanks for sharing.

  99. It’s peanut butter and jelly time!!

    Except toss the jelly and hold chocolate!

    Not many people can resist and peanut butter and chocolate cookie.

  100. First of all, I love a quick cookie with a few ingrediants – seems like such simple wholesomeness (though not in a ‘healthy’ way;) These look marvelous!

    And I offically love the name of your blog. When I first read it (after coming over from Food Gawker) I thought “Dang, I wish I had thought of that!” That would also describe me perfectly!

  101. Those cookies look amazing! It is hard to believe that they only have 5 ingreds.

  102. YUMMO!! Looks sooo good! Christy…you rock girl!

  103. all you have to say is “peanut” and I’m game!

  105. Oooh! I’m so excited! I love peanut butter cookies and my sister-in-law is allergic to wheat, soy, and dairy. With the right kind of chocolate chips, even she can eat these. And since my hero is whoever originally put peanut butter and chocolate together, I’m sure to be a big fan! Might even have to make them tomorrow. 🙂

  114. These cookies look amazing!!

  115. Can’t really go wrong with pb and chocolate chips…can’t wait to try those babies.

  116. am i too late to enter? thanks for a new peanut butter cookie recipe!

  117. yummo- these look great- a must try. ps tried those smore bars-they were fantastic and EASY! ty

  118. @Mo Betta,
    I don’t think that Almond Butter would work. I think peanut butter gives it that texture that’s the bomb. I think Almond Butter would melt too much.

  119. I just stumbled across this recipe and decided to make them tonight. Super easy… I made some modifications though… I doubled the recipe, used chunky peanut butter and semi-sweet choc. chips (3/4c for the doubled recipe)since milk choc is so sweet. They turned out delicious! Definitely will add this recipe to my recipe box and put it in my cookie rotation!

  120. I made these today and they are DELICIOUS! Thanks for the great recipe!

  121. chocolate and peanut butter, just the perfect combination for a perfect cookie, love your recipe.

  122. I am thinking…..and I didn’t read all the previous posts….that if you wanted to cut down on calories you could use trader joes better than peanut butter which has less fat and calories!

  123. Holy yumminess…

  124. Hi there,
    I would like to know one thing, are these gluten-free cookies?!
    I found your blog in a search at pinterest on some gluten-free recipes.


    Claudia A.

  125. I made these today and they were delicious! I got immediate approval from my two daughters! Thank you

  126. I don’t eat dairy, and have found it difficult to make cookies that aren’t too cakey…oil based butter replacements just don’t do the trick. So, when I saw this recipe on Pinterest, I was intrigued. THEY ARE SO GOOD. I honestly think they’re better than any buttery, floury cookie I’ve had. Even my dairy-eating family loved them. I WILL be making these again. Thanks!

  127. just made these, didn’t have a lot of chocolate morsels left so i used a handful of m&ms too. they made about 20, i just oiled my hands before rolling/laying on cookie sheet. maybe i didn’t cook enough, because they are real crumbly but they are so rich and delish – thanks for this quick sweet fix!!

  128. Nice bake man

  129. There are going on my next baking list! I love melt in your mouth peanut butter cookies!

  130. These are great! And Super simple to make.thanks for sharing

  131. How do I join your blog?

  132. Oh man, these are great! They’re rich, without being really dense like some gluten-free peanut butter recipes I’ve tried, so one **seems** satisfying… until you’ve finish it and suddenly need another.

  133. They didn’t work the first time but the second time they worked and tasted so freakin good
