Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, GF Print Recipe Print Recipe


That’s right, pull out those spanx and flowy tops because it’s TWELVE days of Holiday[ish] sweet treats!

Good news, there’s some healthy sweet treats PLUS I’m not throwing them at you all at once.

But really, I’m gonna say day 1 started with these.

Yeah yeah, I’m craving chocolate, didn’t mean to make it that obvious.



These are my go to PB cookies. Sometimes I make them with regular PB, Chocolate PB, chunky or mix all the PB’s together. The recipe never fails me.

You guys, chocolate AAAAAAND peanut butter.  Enough said.

When I get those late night cravings for baking. . . or something sweet, this is usually what I make. It’s so easy.

Basically, you toss everything into one bowl.  mix it all together with your big wooden spoon. roll into little balls [yup, said it] and bake.

You’re welcome.



I couldn’t help it. I bought that little felt Santa basket in the $1 section at target. Wait, it’s the $1 section, right? or is it just a bunch of little stuff?  Nevermind. Not important.

If we were neighbors, I would have dropped this off for you. Unfortunately [or fortunately] my husband and I ate them ALL.

We need to work on getting treats out of the apartment faster. Of course, it might help if we got to know our neighbors first. . .


See this [almost empty] jar of chocolate goodness below? yeah, go buy some now. it’s ridiculous.

Thank you Kris for introducing me to the most amazing peanut butter, ever!

Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

PRINT Recipe

[adapted from Epicurious]


  • 1 cup chocolate peanut butter [or regular or chunky or 1/2 and 1/2]
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together peanut butter (s) brown sugar, egg, baking soda and vanilla. Fold in the chocolate chips. With your hands, roll about a tablespoon of dough into a ball and arrange on the prepared baking sheet(s), spacing 2 inches apart. Continue rolling the dough until it’s gone. If you make 1 baking sheet at a time, place leftover dough in the fridge.

Bake cookies for about 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden brown on the bottom and still soft to touch in center.

Remove and let cool for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks to cool completely.



Happy Holidays!

  • Emily @ Glitz Glam Granola

    Omg flourless chocolate cookies?? AMAZING. And that chocolate peanut butter is so, so incredibly good!! Over the holidays when someone in my family wanted chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream- so I heated up this stuff as a chocolate sauce substitute! Now I need to make these cookies… like asap!

    How was it that I just happened to find the chocolate pb at Target today? I HAD to buy it. My bf and I have been dipping into it, even though it’s, err, uh for “baking.” 😉

  • susanna

    These look soooo good!! Thanks for sharing the recipe! I’m excited to see what you’ll put on next.

  • Adam

    Do you think this would work with almond or hazelnut butter?

  • Taryn @ Design, DIning + Diapers

    These look delicious! i’m GF and I’m all about baking. I make similar PB cookies but never with that yummy looking peanut butter. I’ll have to give that a try!

  • Jennifer

    I just made a batch of these with my two daughters. They are really amazing. That chocolate peanut butter is a bit of heaven in a jar!

  • Beth

    I made these yesterday and they were really good — maybe even too chocolatey. I used half Dark Chocolate Dreams and half regular PB, too. I think the fact I munched on chocolate chips most of the afternoon may have had something to do with it….

  • Lyn @LovelyPantry

    I’m making these because I have all the ingredients! Yay! These are PERFECT *love*
