Flourless Peanut cookies

Bakeathon 2016, Day 2

My New Year resolution has been constant for years now. Weigh loss. Its not a resolution, its a prayer actually. Its almost like me closing my years and praying to all theGods to grant me this wish where I am ten kilos lighter immediately. Like Magic! My fervent prayers and wishes have gone unanswered all these years. So in 2016, my resolution stayed the same, but I decided to take small steps towards weight loss. One major decision was that I won’t bake without an occasion. As you clearly can see, I cannot be left with butter and sugar, all by myself!!

The point of the entire speech is that, I am not able remember why I made these cookies. I clearly remember that these were very easy to make and also that it tasted good (if you like peanut butter, that is!). But no clue about the occasion. I made these in early 2016, about two weeks after my solemn promise not to bake anymore than its absolutely necessary. Apparently that’s the maximum period of time I can hold on to my resolutions ;-). Anyway, I am fine since I did stop baking altogether except for birthdays of friends and family. And at this point, I am happy that I have these cookies to share for today’s post :-)

  5. Now, add the chocolate chips and carefully mix it in with your hands or the spatula.
  6. Make 1 inch balls off the dough. Flatten them and line them in a baking tray. The cookies spread, so leave enough space when placing in the pan.
