Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wanted to make Almond Butter Chocolate Chip cookies one day but I ran out of almond butter. Thankfully I had a jar of peanut butter and whipped up a batch of Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies instead. Same chewy, crispy texture just made with peanut butter. Still guilt-free (gluten-free, lower-carb, low-glycemic, dairy-free) and yummy-licious!

RECIPE

  • 1 cup all-natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup of coconut palm sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 bar of dark chocolate (72% cocoa or greater), chopped
  • 1/2 cup of chopped pecans or other nuts (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together first 5 ingredients until blended. Stir in chocolate.
  3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheets.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
  5. Let cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and let cool for 15 more minutes.
