How to Make: Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
Altogether these cookies are super easy to make with pretty basic ingredients. They’re based off of my three ingredient gluten free vegan peanut butter cookies – these ones include a few extra ingredients for a more fleshed out cookie.
Making these is mostly just a matter of mixing together the wet ingredients and then adding in the dry. You don’t need any special equipment – just a mixing bowl and spoon will do. Once mixed, just roll into a ball, place on your baking sheet and that’s it.
QUESTIONS & TIPS
- Can I make these with regular eggs?
- Yes! Just use two eggs in place of the flax eggs. The moisture from the eggs provide enough moisture that you can also leave out the almond milk.
- How to make these low/carb keto friendly peanut butter cookies
- Any sort of granulated low carb sweetener like erythritol can be use in place of the sugar here for a keto friendly alternative. You’ll also want to either use low carb chocolate chips or just leave them out altogether.
- Can I freeze these?
- Freeze the Dough: First place the dough rolled into individual balls on a baking sheet or place (one that will fit in the freezer) and freeze for an hour or two until firm. Once firm, transfer the balls to a freezer safe bag – remember to label your bag with the name, cook temperature and cook time. To cook from frozen you will need to add an extra 1-2 minuets to the overall bake time.
- Freeze the Baked Cookies: Allow the cookies to cool completely. Freeze the cookies on the baking sheet or a large plate (one that will fit in the freezer) lined with wax or parchment paper for a couple of hours to firm up. Once frozen transfer to a freezer safe ziplock bag and that’s it. Cookies will keep well up to three months in the freezer. When you’re ready to enjoy let thaw outside of the bag/container at room temperature for at least 10 minutes and enjoy!

How to Make Flax Eggs
- Make the flax egg: Mix 1 tablespoons ground flax (or ground chia seeds) with 2 tablespoons water. Stir and set aside about 10 minutes until the mixture gels up and then you're ready to use it. Once ready, use it as you would a regular egg.
- Make sure to let to cookies cool completely before trying to handle or they will crumble. Let them cool on the cookie sheet.
Make it Low Carb
- To make it low carb you can use a keto friendly granulated sugar sub like erythritol or xylitol.
You can use 2 regular eggs in place of the flax eggs. If using actual eggs leave out the almond milk.
