Easy peasy

I love easy recipes, especially ones without a lot of ingredients.  It works well for my hoarding mentality when it comes to food.  I found these flour-free peanut butter cookies over at glutenfreegirl.  The list of ingredients alone sold me on it.  I added some chocolate chips to her recipe.  Fantastic, and so fast to put together.

Chocolate chip peanut butter cookies

You will need:

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  

Cream the peanut butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl (it tends to fly around a bit).  Beat in the baking powder.  Add the egg.  Mix until well combined.  Stir in the chocolate chips with a spoon.

Roll the dough into small balls, about 1 inch round.  Roll onto a plate with some extra white sugar.  Put on your baking sheet and press the cookies down a little bit with the back of a fork.  

Bake 10-12 minutes in the oven.  They will still be a little bit soft when done.  Let cookies cool on the baking sheet five minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.    

Makes about 30 cookies.
