flourless double chocolate peanut butter cookies

Since the new year started, I have been extra busy because I have started teaching regularly again. I hadn't realised it, but it has been a while since I baked anything else other than cakes!

So today, I am sharing a recipe for a super duper easy peasy cookie. You don't even need a mixer to make these.

I have been making these cookies for like, forever.

Funny thing is, I had not thought about blogging about this until today, especially since this is so easy to put together.

Plus, it is gluten-free.

The best part is though, is that it tastes great - super chocolaty and crunchy with lots of peanuts!

To make this cookie, all you need to do is to add sugar, peanut butter, cocoa powder and egg into a bowl.

Then simply mix until everything was combined. I started off using a balloon whisk but the bits kept getting stuck in my whisk. It drove me crazy. Then I remembered I had a Danish dough whisk. Brilliant!!!! No more stuck bits!

I added the chocolate chips and mixed.

Using an ice cream scoop, I dished out balls of dough. If you do not have an ice cream scoop, use your hands and roll the dough into balls (roughly the size of a golf ball). These were placed on baking paper or Silpat baking mats.

Then using a fork, I pressed down gently on the dough, and repeat from the opposite direction.

The cookies were baked, then allowed to cool on the trays for 1-2 minutes before I transferred them onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Bring out the milk.

And you may want to bake more of these cookies. They disappear really quickly!
