Every year we embark on the emotional journey that is Valentine’s Day.
But, thanks to our world hero Leslie Knope, February 13th has gained just as much notoriety as Galentine’s Day. And what’s a better way to treat yo self, than guilt-free flourless peanut butter cookies.
I doctored up a few recipes I came across in my ‘flourless cookie’ Pinterest search, and trust me searching cookies on Pinterest is a black hole.
This should make 16-20 cookies, but as usual, I over-scooped and only managed 15. But hey, its the international day of single-ness, so eat an extra-large cookie or 4.
These come together really quickly, you just cream together the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla; toss in the dry ingredients and some cheeky chocolate chips. At this point you could toss in a bunch of things to spice it up (cinnamon, pecans, walnuts, white chocolate).
Bake them until they’re golden brown and crunchy around the outside and they’ll be nice and chewy on the inside. These do spread, so make sure to leave plenty of room for the Holy Spirit between when you bake them. But it is the day of love, so let your cookies touch if they wanna.
Check out the full recipe below. And here’s to indulging and not feeling ill afterward. Happy Galentine’s Day!
