Description

Healthy peanut butter chocolate chip cookie brittle that is a power fitness food as much as it is a dessert! Naturally grain-free, gluten-free and flourless, it is easily made vegan and/or Paleo!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup stevia for baking
  • 1 large egg OR flax egg (see tip)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the peanut butter, stevia, egg, vanilla and baking soda until blended and smooth. Spread in an even layer on prepared baking sheet to about 1/4-inch thickness and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes until edges appear crisp and dry and the middle of the cookie appears set. Transfer pan to a wire rack and cool completely (the cookie will continue to harden and get crisp as it sits).

Notes

Peanut Butter Sub: An equal amount of smooth almond butter or cashew butter can be used in place of the peanut butter.

Stevia Sub: An equal amount of coconut palm sugar or granular erythritol can be used in place of the stevia. If you do not have granular baking stevia, use approximately 18-24 stevia packets.

Flax Egg: To make a flax egg, stir together 3-1/2 tablespoon water and 2 teaspoons flaxseed meal in a small bowl; let stand 5 minutes to thicken.
