Flourless and eggless? Yes it can be done! I’ve made flourless peanut butter cookies and really liked them. The recipe is super quick to put together and it’s gluten free. I was looking at the recipe again recently and wondered whether I could make it even healthier by eliminating the egg.
I went to my new favorite baking substitute, nonfat Greek strained yogurt. I mixed it all together and hoped for the best. And was happy with the results. The cookies spread more but they are still delicious.
I also used reduced fat peanut butter to make it even healthier. Each cookie is 196 calories, 9.2 grams of fat, and 23.8 grams of carbohydrates. And it works for people with a gluten intolerance and who are allergic to eggs.

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix everything except chocolate chips in medium bowl until smooth with a large wooden spoon. Stir in chocolate chips. Batter will be very sticky and wet.
