Ingredients

  • Wet ingredients
  • 1/2 cup natural creamy peanut butter (just peanuts and salt as the ingredients)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons melted and cooled coconut oil (or sub melted butter or melted vegan butter)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dry ingredients
  • 1/2 cup packed fine blanched almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour (do not pack)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (2.5 ounce) dark chocolate bar (at least 72%), coarsely chopped* (or about 1/3 cup chocolate chips)
  • Fancy Maldon salt (or sea salt), for sprinkling on top

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add peanut butter, melted and cooled coconut oil, coconut sugar, egg and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined, smooth and creamy.
  3. Add in the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt; mix with a wooden spoon until well combined. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  4. Use a cookie scoop to drop dough onto the prepared baking sheet, placing dough 2 inches apart. Bake for 9-12 minutes. As soon as cookies come out of the oven, sprinkle them with a little sea salt. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing them. Makes 10 cookies.

Recipe Notes

*to make these dairy free, make sure to use dairy free or vegan chocolate.

I do not recommend using any other flours then what I have listed in the recipe. I have only tested as is. Oat flour make work okay for the coconut flour, but as mentioned I have not tested.

To store: feel free to keep these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 day, then transfer to the fridge or freezer.

To freeze: make sure the cookies are completely cooled, and then transfer them to an airtight container lined with wax or parchment paper or freezer-safe bag before storing them in the freezer for up to 2 months. I like to place them in a single layer to avoid any cookies breaking. Once ready to eat, simply thaw out at room temperature and enjoy!
