Passover Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

First of all, even though these cookies are flourless, they are legitimately delicious cookies - like not just for "flourless cookies," but for regularly-floured cookies.  I found this recipe on foodgawker.  For those of you that don't know about foodgawker, go check it out!  It is awesome:  it is a website where every day they compile the greatest recipes from different food blogs from all over the world.  (I'll wait here while you explore it...have fun!)  (They have to approve of your submission for it to be posted.  One day I hope to be on foodgawker...)  Anyway, although I found the recipe from foodgawker, the original recipe is from the Chocolate and Carrots blog.

These cookies are super-dooper easy; they only have 5 ingredients - FIVE!!  They taste very richly peanut buttery.  The one thing is that because there are so few ingredients, your choice of peanut butter and your choice of chocolate chips really, really matter.  Also, each cookie only has 100 calories, so that's cool too.  

I brought these to our Passover seder last night because it turns out they are kosher for Passover!  (For those of you that don't know, for the 8 days of Passover, Jewish people don't eat flour and other things with grain and leavening.)  Because these are flourless, they are Passover-friendly.  However, warning: some Jewish people don't eat legumes and peanuts are legumes, so if you are baking these for someone for Passover, just double check with them that they will eat peanuts.

This recipe makes about 30 cookies.

Alright...To the Baking!

One, Two, Three, Four, Five!  Five Ingredients!
