Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Katie on March 25, 2015

These Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are my favorite to make when I need a snack and don’t have much in the pantry or much time to bake. Those seem to be two things that I’ve been short on lately. Short on time equals short on food in the pantry because, well…grocery shopping is one of my least favorite tasks so it’s the first to go. ;)

It’s not that grocery shopping is that bad. It’s the putting the groceries away part – it’s a beast. It’s like torture for me.

I’ve started bribing myself to get it done. I choose to think of it as more of a reward than a bribe because people my age shouldn’t have to be bribed. Rewards are perfectly acceptable though.  My Meijer has a Starbucks and that’s the best kind of reward there is. It’s right by the entry so I stop there first and get an iced coffee. I stroll around and fill my cart and get another refill before I leave. Gold card, baby…free refills.

(In case you are worried for my caloric intake: I drink it with no sugar basically so it’s also almost calorie free – about 30 calories. And I’m working that off speed walking through my daunting chore. Ha. Okay, I don’t really speed walk. I’m way to cool for that.)

I discovered last week that they know me and how I like my coffee there. Grande Iced Coffee – 1 pump classic & light 2%. Yikes. Embarrassing, right? Like maybe I hit up the Meijer Starbucks too often? It’s nothing new…I’m known at my other Starbucks too.  I should be used to this by now.

Lets get back to these cookies and stop focusing on my grocery shopping laziness and addiction to coffee. It’s embarrassing. And I’m going to stop before I embarrass myself too much.

These cookies! THESE COOKIES! They are gluten free and full of peanut buttery deliciousness. You can whip up a batch in no time and they will make your family so happy! I don’t even miss the flour in them. Yum!
