Flourless Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookies by Gymbags and Gladrags

Posted by Lauren November 4, 2015

I fancied baking at the weekend so I spent a good part of Saturday morning Googling almond flour recipes, before realising I was out of almond flour and coconut flour – D’oh! Not wanting to change out of my sweats and venture outside, I decided to make flourless cookies. I settled on flourless chocolate and peanut butter cookies, because chocolate and peanut butter are my two favourite things. I didn’t want to turn this baking session into a binge session, so I swapped Chocolate for Raw Cacao powder, I also added a blend of Maca Powder, Lucuma Powder & Hemp Proteinto give my cookies a nutritious boost.

 

I’ve recently teamed up with Bioglan Superfoods as part of their #SuperpoweredYou campaign to help inspire and superpower our lives. If healthy, nutritious, flourless chocolate and peanut butter cookies aren’t inspiring and superpower-ing then I don’t know what is. I joke, I joke. Each month I’m going to be sharing a new recipe with you that will have superfoods in them to show you how to pack more nutrients and health benefits into your food. Bioglan Superfoods powders are all made with 100% natural, raw and organic ingredients. Having them in powders means they’re easy to use in so many different ways, from smoothies to baking to sprinkling on porridge and salads.

I’ve adapted this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction and swapped some of the ingredients to make these cookies healthier and more nutritious. Please don’t compare Sally’s perfectly round cookies to mine, I was going for the rustic look *side eyes*. I want to make these cookies again and experiment with swapping out the brown sugar for honey, maple syrup or Truvia/stevia. If there are any favourite recipes that you’d love me to adapt to be healthier just let me know! I’m excited to finally be regularly sharing recipes with you all on the blog.

Recipe type: Dessert

Serves: 10-12 cookies

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
  • 2 Medium Eggs
  • 3 tbsp Bioglan Superfoods Cacao Powder
  • 1 tbsp Bioglan Superfoods Engergy Boost Powder
  • ⅓ cup Light Brown Sugar (lightly packed)
  • ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1tsp Baking Soda

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius and line two baking trays with parchment paper
  2. Beat the two eggs in a medium-sized mixing bowl
  3. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix together
  4. Spoon the mixture into 1-tbsp sized cookies and use the back of the spoon to gently flatten each cookie. Split the cookies between the two baking trays so that there are 5-6 cookies on each.
  5. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. I baked mine for 11 as I wanted more of a crunch on the outside. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking trays before transferring onto a wire rack to completely cool before you tuck in.
