  • 1 cup natural peanut butter or nut butter of choice, substitute with sunflower butter to make nut free
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl mix the peanut butter, coconut sugar, egg, vanilla, and baking soda until the coconut sugar has somewhat dissolved into the peanut butter. A hand or stand mixer is best for this but you can also use a rubber spatula.
  • Fold the mini chocolate chips into the cookie dough until well combined. Use a small cookie scoop or spoon to scoop the dough into a small ball and roll it in between the palms of your hands. Press the ball of dough down so it flattens out on the top and bottom so it resembles a hockey puck.
  • Place each cookie dough ball on a baking sheet and sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips over top. Bake in the oven for 9 - 12 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
  • Sprinkle some sea salt on top of each cookie and allow them to cool down completely before enjoying. Store extras in an airtight container for up to 4 days out on the counter or a week in the fridge.


Nut free : Swap the peanut butter with sunflower butter to make these cookies nut free.
Storing : These cookies will keep for up to 4 days when stored in an airtight container on the counter or up to a week in the fridge.
