Flourless Peanut Butter Blossoms


Who says you need to add flour to your peanut butter cookie recipe?

Not this blogger.

Who says you need to add plain butter to your peanut butter cookie recipe?

Not me.

Enjoy this rich and chewy peanut butter flavored cookie sans flour and regular butter. Peanut butter can serve both as the fat source and help bind the cookie together.  In fact you only need 5 ingredients + chocolate candies to make this simple recipe. Five ingredients means the recipe can be mixed and ready for the oven in only a few minutes.  Super easy and super tasty!

No flour leads to less carbohydrates (and calories). No regular butter leads to less saturated fat (the artery clogging kind of fat) and more unsaturated fat (the heart healthy fat).


I chose dark chocolate for the "blossom" of the cookie, but any type of chocolate is possible.  A few minutes after you remove the cookies from the oven gently press the chocolate into cookie.  These cookies will last for at least 48 hours. They do start to loose their shape and break easily after 48 hours.

Happy Spring Forward Day!
