Easy (flour-less) peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies. Possibly the easiest cookie recipe in existence, and perfect for when you (and your local store) are out of flour.
How to cook chocolate chip cookies when you have no flour
I put together this recipe for anyone who (like me) is sheltering in place, needing to bake something yummy, and out of flour. My local grocery store is also out of flour, so I had to get creative.
I don’t know about you, but I am finding being stuck at home makes me want to snack all day long, and I have used up all my flour (making microwave cup cakes). Luckily, this recipe doesn’t need flour. Also, the recipe actually couldn’t be easier (my favorite kind!).
Besides all that to recommend them, they are also high in protein, gluten-free, absolutely delicious and look beautiful when they are done (even though they look kind of a mess on the way in to oven).
