  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter ( I used natural unsalted peanut butter)
  • 1 cup sugar (I used coconut sugar)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips (to add to top of cookies prior to baking)


  1. Gather and measure ingredients. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.

  3. Mix all the ingredients except chocolate chips in a medium-sized mixing bowl.

  4. Gently add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.

  5. Add scoops of the cookie batter to a parchment-lined baking pan. Roll batter into a ball with your hand and then shape into a cookie shape. The cookies spread a little so space the cookies 2 inches apart.

  6. Add a few more chocolate chips to the tops of each cookie.

  7. Bake for 10 minutes until the sides start to turn golden.

  8. Remove from oven and let cookies cool a bit on the baking pan (about 5-10 minutes).

  9. Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and let cookies cool completely.

  10. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Cookies can be frozen for up to a few months.

Recipe Notes

Tips and Techniques:

  • Do not overbake.  Take the cookies out of the oven when the edges are starting to turn golden brown.
  • Make the cookies a nice size (use 1 - 2 tablespoons dough).
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract if you like that flavor.
  • Substitute almond flour for the peanut butter if you wish.
