Flourless Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Flourless Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
Grain-free and naturally sweetened,

1 cup creamy peanut butter , unsalted
1/3 cup honey (*see note below to reduce sugar content)
1 whole egg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.
In a medium bowl, mix together the first five ingredients until a thick, gooey batter forms, then fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a tablespoon, drop batter onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
This dough is much stickier than traditional cookie dough, but will turn out just right.

Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350F, turning the pan half-way through the baking time so that the cookies brown evenly.
When they are lightly browned, remove the pan from the oven, and allow the cookies to rest on the baking sheet for 10 minutes.
They will firm-up as they rest, so this step is important!
Once cool, and firm enough to handle, use a spatula to transfer them to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

Serve at room temperature, with your favorite beverage, or chill in the freezer for a cold, chewy treat!

Note
To reduce sugar content, I've successfully made these cookies using only 1/4 cup of honey, plus a dropperful of NuNaturals liquid stevia (about 12 drops). Feel free to play around with different ratios, to suit your tastes and needs!
I dream, therefore I am.
