Cookies for peanut butter lovers

These are my favorite flour less cookies… and so fast and easy to make. Best part is the peanut butter, a lot of it 🙂

I love love peanut butter. The crunchy natural one. My favorite is the trader Joe’s crunchy peanut butter 🙂 so yum!

For this recipe you’ll need creamy peanut butter, however you can try using crunchy – I’m sure it will come out tasty.


Let’s get to it


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (or more for chocolate loves)

Preheat the oven to 350’F
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  1. Using mixer combine peanut butter and sugar until creamy and smooth.
  2. Add in the egg and vanilla extract.
  3. Add the baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. Mix until combined.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips (my favorite part)

Scoop the dough 1 tablespoon each, onto a baking sheet. Slightly flatten with a spoon.
Optional you can sprinkle with more chocolate chips or chopped nuts (roasted and salted work best)

Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet.

These are ready to eat right away!
