THIS WORK OF GENIUS IS NOT ORIGINALLY MINE.
The layers of protein bowl and peanut butter are mine, but the cookie crumbles….those are all Bova.
We got this recipe from our friends at Bova Health & Wellness in Upstate NY. Dr. Bova and his beautiful wife Allie are phenomenal advocates of clean living, and total wellness. They have changed so many lives through their wonderful practice. They also like good food, so this recipe for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies was a stroke of pure brilliance.
These peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are free of gluten and dairy. I have tweaked it very slightly to incorporate Vitality oils, and also to reduce the sugar from 1/2 cup to 1/4 cup.
I usually crumble the cookies up on a protein shake bowl, as pictured above, or I eat them before a workout with a cup of tea.
BOVA PB Cookies (preheat oven to 325F)
- 1 cup chunky natural peanut butter - yes, it does need to be chunky.
- 1/4 cup light brown organic cane sugar.
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup Enjoy Life Dairy Free Chocolate Chips (OR I use Lily’s Unsweetened Chocolate Chips)
Mix together all of the ingredients EXCEPT for the chocolate chips. Stir those in last. Roll the dough into the size of ping-pong balls, and place 1 inch apart on a greased baking sheet. The cookies will not expand or flatten.
Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes and enjoy when cool! They keep very well if you put them in the freezer, but I don’t think they’ll last that long. ;)
