No Flour Peanut Butter Cookies

flourless peanut butter cookiesPeanut butter is not one of my go-to’s in the kitchen. Especially when I’m baking, but a few weeks ago when I was invited to visit the Tillamook farm we got to try some of their ice creams smothered in between soft and chewy cookies. I jumped at the salted caramel and chocolate, but was hesitant of the peanut butter and jelly version. Something about it just didn’t sound fantastic but luckily I had Glory from Glorious Treats there to put a little peer pressure on. They turned out to be one of my favorite treats from the entire trip and inspired me to create these no flour peanut butter cookies!

That’s right, I said NO flour. Which seems odd, right? I’ve made these two different ways. The first with my homemade peanut butter and the second with a store bought version. Both tasted equally delicious so I don’t think you’ll need to worry on which to use. I do suggest that you take a peek at the label before you start and adjust your sugar in the recipe according to how much is already in your spread.

flourless peanut butter cookies with Tillamook ice creamNow, the cookies are amazing on their own. My five year old could have devoured an entire pan all on his own, but add in a little Oregon Strawberry Tillamook ice cream and you’ve got something amazing.

What could I use if I don't have a lined cookie sheet or parchment paper?

Tin foil or if you don't have that just lightly mist the tray with non stick spray.

These PB cookies are my favorite ones! I mean, I’m all for a traditional recipe, but there’s something so peanutty about them with no flour. And the ice cream sandwiches were the BEST!
