Flourless Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Must Try

I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

As much as I adored my Flourless White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, these dark chocolate peanut butter spin-offs might be even better.

Flourless Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Flourless chocolate desserts – such as cakes or tortes – are known for their exorbitantly dense fudge-like texture, and can be difficult to get through without a few sips of water, milk, or wine in between each decadent bite. Although those rich treats have their loyal followers, I typically prefer a dessert with a lighter consistency. Regardless of which category you fall into, these flourless cookies are sure to win you over as they strike the perfect balance of intense chocolate flavor and light chewy texture.

The best word I can think of to describe the texture of these cookies is pillowy. The slightest bit of crisp coating gives way to a soft and brownie-like interior dotted with creamy peanut butter chips.  A word of caution: don’t be tempted to bake the cookies until they’re completely firm; in order to achieve the right lightness, they must be taken out of the oven while still seemingly under-baked. As they cool, the cookies will set up a bit, but will remain soft and chewy.

I can’t imagine that this will be the case, but if there are leftover cookies, they can be stored in – and enjoyed straight from – the freezer.
