JUMP for cookies

Get ready to rock your socks {…}

These cookies are amazing, and contain no butter or eggs. A ‘healthy’ chocolate chip cookie if you will. But to me it tastes like a brown sugar, peanut butter, maple, dark chocolate, sea salt, cookie of goodness.  🙂

The recipe is amazingly simple to go along with these tasty treats. Mix your dry, mix your not dry, then combine and bake.  You have no excuse not to make these and feel awesome about yourself. {recipe at end of post}

First mix together the dry:

Mix together the not dry:

Make sure you mash and mix up the peanut butter so all the wet ingredients are completely combined.

Then combine and mix. When everything is blended throw in the chocolate chips and form into balls.  Place on a sprayed cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

You can flatten slightly for a thicker cookie or flatten completely for a much thinner cookie. I chose a happy place in-between the two.

If you like before baking the cookies sprinkle a little sea salt and/or brown sugar on the tops of the cookies.  Salt especially is such a good flavor addition to a sweet snack.

These were absolutely delicious right out of the oven, which is when most of my desserts are eaten…, but if you can save a few they are even better the next day.
