Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes: about 24 cookies
1 cup all natural organic peanut butter (we used creamy)
1 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs maple syrup
3 tbs water
1 cup COLD chickpea flour (we keep ours in the freezer)
1 tsp baking soda
pinch salt (omit salt if using salted peanut butter)
½ cup chocolate chips (use vegan chocolate chips to keep these vegan)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, vanilla extract and coconut sugar. Mix well.
- Add chickpea flour, baking soda and salt (if using), and mix until combined. The dough will be crumbly at this point.
- Add water and maple syrup. Mix until the dough starts to come together. Add in chocolate chips.
- Roll the dough into balls (about 1 - 2 tablespoons per cookie), drop on parchment paper, press down on the top of each ball of dough to flatten a bit, then flatten with a fork horizontally and then vertically to create a crisscross pattern.
- Bake for 15 minutes or until edges turn golden brown.
- After removing the baking sheet from the oven, lightly press down on the top of each cookie with a fork to flatten them a bit. This compacts the cookie, giving it a chewy center and crisp edges.
- Let cool completely.
- Eat & enjoy! Store extras in an airtight plastic container.
