Sea Salted Peanut Butter Cookies

My last few recipe posts have been decently healthy recipes.  This one…not so much.  But that’s okay, because it’s nice to have a dessert here and there!  And if you’re someone who avoids eating gluten, this is a cookie for you, because it’s flourless!!

I was bored after work the other night and was craving something sweet, so I looked at what I had in my kitchen, and whipped these up.  They are so delicious (about 6 other people who tried them agreed), I just had to share them with you!

Step 1:  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Step 2: Combine sugar, vanilla extract, and egg and mix

Step 3: Add peanut butter and mix until smooth

Step 4: Add in mini chocolate chips and stir until they are evenly distributed into batter (if you don’t want any chocolate in your cookies, that’s ok!  Just leave this step out!)


Step 5: Spoon out batter onto ungreased cookie sheet (I did spoonfuls about the size of a ping pong ball) about 1.5 inches apart and press fork into balls to make the crosshatch design

Step 6: Sprinkle sea salt on the top of each cookie

Step 7: Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes on center rack

Step 8: Remove from oven and let cool before removing cookies from cookie sheet

Step 9: Enjoy!

This recipe yields 1 dozen cookies.

I like eating mine while they are still a bit warm, and I’m sure they would taste great with vanilla ice cream!

Try them!  You will be addicted!
