Ever since I discovered Peanut Flour (I got mine at TJ’s) I’ve been looking for more ways to use it. This stuff is amazing! The calories are like regular flour but it packs in an amazing 16g of protein, oh and it’s gulten free! So it’s great for people that need to avoid that 🙂 I saw some delicious-looking PB Oats on Chelsey’s blog, but I didn’t have any oats, so I started hunting for a PB Flour Recipe. I was in the mood to bake, so I was looking for cookie options. I came across this awesome recipe from Itzy’s Kitchen. I only made half a batch, because I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, so here’s how it went:
Peanut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1/2 cup peanut flour
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/8 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup earth balance (or butter)
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tbsp water (or 1 egg, but I wanted to keep it vegan)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips (I used vegan dark chocolate chips)
Heat oven to 375. Combine the first 4 ingredients in one bowl and set aside. Mix up the next 5 ingredients until throughohly mixed. (I didn’t melt my earth balance, so I had to stir for awhile.) Then slowly add in those dry ingredients. Finish by stiring in the chocolate chips. This makes about 1 dozen cookies. Spoon them on to your cookie sheet and bake until golden brown. (Probably ~10 minutes) Let cool… That’s the hardest part.
They turned out pretty well!

Speaking of fitness, I just got a Netflix subscription and I’m excited to try some new workout videos. Sunday afternoon, I did the 10 minute solutions target toning, and I definitely had some sore buns the next day. Do you guys have any workout DVD recommendations? As the weather gets colder, I will probably try to do some more “living room workouts”…
