I wonder just how many times I’ve baked choc chip cookies in my life. Actually it’s probably best I don’t know the answer to that because then you’d have to multiply it by A LOT to get the number I’ve actually eaten.

My excuse, there are just so many variations to try – like grain free peanut butter choc chip cookies.

Now I am a huge fan of the chocolate chip cookie but I have so many regular choc-chip cookie recipes I thought I’d change it up.

So I mixed the original recipe with another recipe to make a healthier version – grain free peanut butter choc chip cookies.

Wow that’s a mouthful but a tasty one.

If you make these you will think the recipe is quite odd. It starts with combining peanut butter and an egg which makes this strange-looking goop.

Before you curse me for making you waste a cup of peanut butter, keep going, I promise they’re worth the sacrifice.

You could also use almond butter or any nut butter but don’t leave out the cinnamon – it’s an essential ingredient. If you don’t have any, you could use 100% pure cinnamon bark or cassia essential oil.

Grain free peanut butter choc chip cookies - delicious snack!

Mine aren’t technically dairy-free as I used real chocolate but feel free to substitute cacao nibs instead.

Enjoy!
