Peanut Chocolate Chip Cookies made with Peanut Flour

When the National Peanut Board sent me a box of peanut products to test out, I was excited to see peanut flour. I have read about peanut flour on food blogs, but I have never tried it myself. I went to my favorite cooking blog, Averiecooks.com to see what she has made with peanut flour. Her vegan gf peanut butter carmel chocolate chip cookies were the blue print for my cookies. I only changed them up a little bit.

Peanut flour is high protein, low fat, gluten free and low carb. I wish I could say these cookies are low carb ;) I do suppose they are a lot lower in carbs than cookies made with regular flour! Yes, convince myself ;) Peanut flour is also high in protein. I think I am doing a good job convincing myself that I need these cookies for my health!

Let me tell you these are amazing!!! They are chewy and soft! They hold together perfectly, which for a gluten free cookie is amazing!

  1. Kelli thanks for making these and for the kind words. I am actually thrilled you made these because I was thinking about these cookies the other day, and wondering if anyone was stilll on the peanut flour bandwagon as it was so popular a year or so ago…and love that you made them, and had them hold together and turn out soft and chewy…as you said, all can be tricky with GF baking!

Tell me what you think!
