Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Recipe submitted by Carin C. of Ridgefield, CT, for the Mambolicious Recipe Contest 2009.

Whenever my husband wants these, he says, “Can you make those good for you cookies?” Because they are so easy to prepare, with ingredients I typically have on hand, I am always happy to oblige! While the cookies may not be “good” for you per se, they certainly aren’t bad for your either. With protein from eggs and peanut butter, antioxidants from dark chocolate, and just a little bit of sugar, you don’t need to feel guilty when indulging!

Ingredients:

  • 1 jar organic, natural peanut butter, chunky
  • 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups organic sugar, depending on your desired sweetness
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Equal Exchange chocolate bar, broken up into chunks
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In large bowl, mix together peanut butter, sugar, eggs, baking soda, and salt. Add chocolate chunks.
  3. Moisten hands, and roll dough into small balls (about 1 heaping Tbsp each). Place 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
  4. Bake 11-13 minutes, until cookies are golden and puff up. Cool on sheets for about 5 minutes, as they will cook more. Transfer to baking rack.
  5. Pour large, cold glass of milk (or soy/rice/other milk), and enjoy!
