Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Cookies

I stumbled across this recipe a few weeks ago and have been waiting to eat through my other cookies before making a new batch. I have never baked a flourless cookie before. I was a bit skeptical at first because I couldn’t tell if they were done and at first taste they seemed super doughy. However, after they cooled the texture stabilized quite a bit. These cookies are very rich and flavorful. I’m not sure if it’s my favorite cookie, but they were fun and easy to make.

Ingredients
– 1/2 c cocoa powder
– 2 tsp baking powder
– 2 Tbls flax plus 6 Tbls water, whisked and set aside for several minutes
– 2 c peanut butter (I used natural pb from the co-op)
– 2/3 c agave
– 1/2 c chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375F
2. Mix flax mixture, set aside
3. Whisk the dry ingredients together and add into the wet ingredients, including flax mixture. Blend everything with a hand blender
4. Once the mixture has come together, stir in the chocolate chips
5. Scoop onto cookie sheets and flatten out. Bake for about 10 minutes
