Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m still on my “health” kick. I use the quotations because these recipe aren’t necessarily low-cal but they are packed with stuff that’s good for you like chocolate and peanut butter (just kidding, but they do actually have lots of protein and healthy oils.) When you make these cookies at home make sure to use the purest peanut butter you can find (i.e. no added sugar or stabilizers). I replaced all-purpose flour with almond meal/flour and the result is simply awesome. These cookies stay soft and chewy. These are perfect for passover and flour-free diets. Enjoy!

US (but flourless so should work perfectly in other countries)
