chunky and chewy cookies Growing up my most favorite cookies where my mom’s home made peanut butter cookies, I could sit there and eat the whole tray in one sitting. Her cookies were small and round and very very dense. If I’m not mistaken about 80% of the cookie was actually made up of just peanut butter and the rest of the ingredients were basically just sugar! I accidentally created this recipe, chunky and chewy peanut butter cookies.. And sadly I had an unfortunate accident that terminated my most favorite and coveted mixing bowl. It was a sad night and the worse was knowing I had to scrap my first batch of peanut butter cookies for fear of pieces of glass in the mix. I honestly have know idea how I broke my bowl I was whipping the Follow your heart vegan butter in the bowl next to my favorite bowl and out of literally nothing it cracked right in the middle… I guess it was it’s time to go. With a heavy heart I will be sure to always bake in its honor. Bowl I dedicate my Chewy and chunky Peanut Butter cookies to you.


Like I said before I accidentally created this recipe, I’ve been playing with gluten free flours recently and came across Quinoa flour at Costco. I was intrigued and decided to use it as my gluten free mix. Normally i mix together a few different types of flours, almond mill, amaranth, lentil flour to make my blend but this time I figured I will try this on its own. personally i was worried it would have a weird taste, because when i opened the bag it had a very odd intense scent poor out and i thought i was going to be stuck with an industrial sized bag of milled quinoa. but luckily i was wrong and now all is good in this world because this recipe will rock your socks.Photo 2016-12-07, 4 37 41 PMOther then quinoa flour you should already have everything in your pantry and don’t worry you can swap out the quinoa flour 1:1 with any other flour your heart desires. Also you should note when I made this recipe I scooped out big spoons of the dough onto the baking sheet and it took around 8 minutes to cook and so for this reason only 9 cookies came out of this batch so if you end up having more then 9 cookies change the cooking time accordingly so your don’t over cook the chunky and chewy peanut butter cookies.
