Just when you thought chocolate chip cookies couldn't get any better, bam, in comes peanut butter being all smooth and irresistible.

To be honest, peanut butter and I have a volatile relationship. We've been like this since day one. And it's not him, it's me. You see, I have an unhealthy relationship when it comes to PB. Gluttonous at the best of times, to the point were one brings themselves to the point of nausea. Then the mere sight of him displeases. I have zero self control which quickly turns our lust into disgust. I know I need to find balance and avoid over indulging in it's salty, nutty goodness. But how? Is there a peanut butter anonymous group out there? 

Even a shrink? 

Hypnotist?

When I found this recipe over at the Ambitious Kitchen, I knew I needed to rekindle this relationship once again, thinking this would be a perfect way to achieve that desired balance. Plus they're sans flour and butter. Not that I have anything against those two; but I know some people do. These little morsels smell like peanut butter and leave you with a delightfully slight and subtle aftertaste too. There is still a risk of overindulgence because, cookies. But the upside is you can't technically spoil that love for PB as you would consuming straight out of the jar (don't quote me on that). So it kind of cancels the other out (again, don't quote me). If you share a similar relationship to PB as I do.

I didn't feel the need to recreate or modify this recipe in the slightest. Say for the chocolate chips which I replaced with standard chocolate. If you were wondering why I hardly ever add chocolate chips to anything it is because I personally I don't like using them. I once read somewhere that the reason why they retain their shape when baking is because there is a wax coating covering their surface which prevents excess melting. For me the thought of consuming some unnatural, heat resistant wax coating doesn't sound appealing to me at all. Seriously I consume enough junk as it is, so I try to avoid and substitute them as much as possible. Plus it is a million times more satisfying to bite into a gooey cookie and be left battling a mouthful of oozing chocolate then small semi-soft pieces.

Just saying.

  12. These cookies look absolutely delicious! While I don't have anything against sugar and flour either, having cookies without those two ingredients make them feel a whole lot healthier! Thanks for sharing :)

  13. Hi Sonia! You made me smile, I have the same relationship with pb and u know, it was much known here where I live till a couple of years ago, so I had to wait ages before it arrives (of course I had already tasted it abroad). Btw, u know recipes are my fave post from u, the cookies looks divine, wish I had one right now! xo

  22. Um, looks like we will be joining the Peanut Butter Anonymous group together. Sonia Sonia Sonia. This recipe is to-die-for. Can you please share your photography tips because I can almost taste and smell these cookies. Why has no one invented smell-o-vision yet. P.S. That is so sad about chocolate chips. I had no idea about the wax coating. Seriously the amount of junk we put into our bodies without knowing is just disgusting. I wish things were little more transparent. #endrant :/

  23. Lovely. Bookmarking this. I love to make cookies, well I love baking period, during the holidays so I'll have to test this one out. If you love baking cookies Rosie over at The Londoner just put up a cool recipe for these ginger-type cookies. Those are on my to-make list as well.

  38. Yeeees these look so amazing! I'd probably have to purposefully undercook them though, because undercooked cookies are the best things ever - soft middles and crunchy corners = divine.

    I recently went over to my boyfriend's house and had some peanut butter on toast. Before, I wouldn't have been able to stand it, but now.. eh, it isn't too bad. And in cookies? Even better.
