Going Fast... Made Faster Flourless Cookies

These are really easy and fast to make and didn't last long at my house!

There are a lot of flourless cookies out there but this is my first time making any.   Since my go to flour is white rice mixed with some starches, it isn't all that good for you.  To be honest, I've been avoiding eating baked goods unless for a special occasion.  Jennie turned me on to looking into flourless cookies!  Smartie!

Here is a treat that is a cross between a cookie and a candy that isn't overly sweet and that uses no flour or margarine or oil.

I decided to try some freshly ground peanut butter for this recipe for a little texture.  I've been wanting to give this a challenge for a bit now and thought this was a good way to do it.

1 cup nut butter of your choice
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
Dash of salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons vanilla Soymilk

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix all ingredients together in food processor.  Form into 3/4" balls and place on cookie sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes.  Allow to cool on pan.

This is a fudgy, moist cookie with great "Reese's" flavor.

The dough is seriously good before it's baked too and would be great simply dipped in chocolate like truffles too.
