Now that I’m officially off my pre-cruise diet, which consisted of clean(er) eating (aka no chocolate, bread, decadent food), I wanted to share one of my favorite dessert recipes! This recipe is quick, easy and completely flourless. Peanut butter cookies without flour? It can be done!

These cookies feature two of my all-time favorite things; peanut butter and dark chocolate, mmmmmmm. Since the recipe does have a good amount of sugar in it, I wouldn’t recommend eating these allllll the time, but they’re a great treat!

I’m not going to lie this is usually my go-to when I need to bring something to a party or get-together. It’s just so easy and who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter? Need something to bring to your Easter celebrations next weekend? Swap classic m&ms for some Easter colored m&ms and you are good. to. go.

Enjoy!
