Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today we have a special guest post from Hilary at Dawdling Darlings! She has an awesome blog herself, so go check it out!

 ——————

I wonder how many blog posts exist that begin with the existential question: “Is there a single person who doesn’t like peanut butter and chocolate together?” Since there’s nobody in the room with my at the moment to answer this question for me, I’m going to just assume that, no, no there isn’t!

I thought this recipe would be perfect to post on Rebekkah’s blog because in college, she made many a delicious chocolate and peanut butter treat for us. She raised almost enough money for me to replace my lost apartment key with a bake sale- homemade peanut butter cups being one of the most obsessed over goodies in the spread. I also remember a handful of evenings where I said aloud, “Ah, Rebek, remember those peanut butter chocolate chip cookies you made that were so good?” …an hour later, she’d arrive at my door with a plate of them!

These versions are good for present-day Hilary and Rebekkah, being that they’re gluten and dairy-free! But not in a gf flour and margarine sort of way… there just simply isn’t any flour or butter to be found in them! Hooray!
