Twelve Days of Christmas: Grain-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Grainless Cookies

This recipe is fast, easy and a huge hit with the kids. I keep this cookie dough on hand in the freezer portioned out for one dozen cookies in each container so we can make just a few on occasion.

If your kids can’t do peanut butter, it works equally well with any other nut butter or sunflower seed butter.  SunGold Sunnut Butter is run in a dedicated gluten and nut-free environment.  It’s a great alternative to peanut butter for those allergic to peanuts.

The full, printable recipe is below. This is a photo-intensive post that shows you each step.

First, mix the eggs, vanilla, Concentrace, rapadura and salt in a bowl.

wet ingredients

Wait until the rapadura dissolves completely.

Meanwhile, whisk the dry ingredients together.

Then quickly whisk in the peanut butter.

Then stir in the chocolate chips. Note to self: Next time, put the chocolate chips into a measuring cup instead of letting the kids dump the whole bag in by accident. Whoops. Chill the dough until firm.

Roll into balls and place 1-inch apart on a cookie sheet. The balls will feel greasy, but if they’re cold enough they will roll just fine.

Or flatten out the balls.

The unsquished balls make puffy cookies that are slightly gooey inside.

The flattened dough balls make traditionally-shaped cookies with no gooey center. I personally liked it this way.

    do you think we could do honey instead of rapadura/stevia since we’re on GAPS?

    • Abi, I’m sure honey would work well, but since honey is a liquid I’d reduce the eggs. Then be prepared to add extra coconut flour to get the texture rollable, if needed.

      • fire honey says:

        according to the encyclopedia of country living, the formula to replace sugar with honey is:

        “for every 1C sugar, replace with 3/4 C honey, and either 4Tbsp more flour or 1/4 C less water, add 1/4 teaspoon additional baking soda and bake at 25 degrees lower for 25-75% longer.”

        Personally, this works, but I leave out more water or add even more flour, bake even lower for even longer that recommended. Everything is thinner, more crumbly, less crunchy. There are certain things that just don’t cook well with honey, and cookies really is one of them. I use honey for 95% of baking, and still haven’t made comparable cookies.

  4. Are any of the trace minerals wiped out by the heat of cooking? I have never thought to put them in a baked good, so I have never thought about this before!

  5. Rhonda says:

    How much NuNaturals stevia do you use to equal 3/4 c sweetener? Also what brand of chocolate chips do you prefer?

  6. Yogi says:

    This sounds easy and yummy. I have a question about adding peanut butter or other nut butter. My daughter cringes at the sight, smell or taste of peanut butter and peanuts. Will this recipe hide it well? Thanks.

    Could I use Xylitol for the sugar in these cookies
