Can you make these flourless peanut butter cookies without eggs?
Yes, many flourless peanut butter cookie recipes do contain an egg, but it is possible to make these using a flax seed egg replacer. If you are able to eat eggs, go ahead and use one regular egg.
Are peanut butter cookies healthy?
Peanut butter is a good source of protein, and these do not contain any grains, so they are a little lower in carbohydrates. They do contain sugar though, so they are still a treat. If you want to avoid refined sugars, you could try these with coconut sugar or date sugar. I don’t know if these would work with sugar substitutes like stevia.
How do you make grain free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies?
- Prepare the flax seed egg and set aside.
- Place the peanut butter, sugar, flax egg, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and stir well.
- Stir in the chocolate chips. Chill the dough.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free, Vegan).
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix up your ground flax seed meal and water and let sit for a few minutes so it can gel up.
- Once the flax egg has reached an egg like consistency, add the creamy peanut butter, sugar, baking soda, and salt and mix until well combined. Stir in the semisweet chocolate chips.
- Chill the dough for about a half hour. Then drop dough, about a tablespoon at a time on parchment lined cookie sheets.
- Bake until cookies are golden, 12 to 14 minutes. These cookies are fragile when warm, so cool for about 10 minutes on sheets; transfer cookies to racks to cool completely.
