Healthy Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Healthy Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft and chewy, chunks of dark chocolate and nutty peanut butter dough baked into a perfect milk loving cookie!

These peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are my absolute favorite healthy cookie recipe and I think they are calling your name. If you love soft, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth cookies then these are everything you have been looking for while still being low in carbs, sugar and gluten-free.

Am I the only person who has to slap peanut butter onto everything they bake and eat? I really hope not because peanut butter is life! [insert yasss queen emoji here]


I made a couple batches of this recipe while trying to perfect it and in doing so I discovered a secret to a perfect chocolate chip cookie. Undercooking it or not over cooking it. However you look at it, the cook time is a very important factor to consider. My first batch I baked a little too long and they turned out very cake like and dry. The second time around I removed the cookies from the oven before I thought they were ready. They continued to cook even after I took them out of the oven and by the time they cooled, they were PERFECT! So yummy!

Can we just take a second to admire the perfection of this cookie dough. You guys should know that it took all my strength not to jut eat handfuls of this before I baked it. It took ALL OF MY STRENGTH!

Healthy Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Soft and chewy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies made gluten-free, refined sugar-free and high in protein!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c + 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1 1/4 c gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 c vanilla protein powder PEScience 30% off code PBCHOCO
  • 1/4 c coconut sugar
  • 1/4 c granulated zero calorie sweetener Swerve
  • 1 egg, large
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp finely ground sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • flaked sea salt for sprinkling
  • 1/2 c sugar-free chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the gluten-free flour, protein, coconut sugar, granulated zero calorie sweetener, salt and baking powder into a mixer and mix until combined.
  3. Add in the peanut butter, egg, coconut oil and vanilla. Mix using a paddle attachment until a crumbly dough forms. Add in the water 1/4 cup at time until dough comes together. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Use a cookie scooper to scoop and drop cookies onto the prepared baking sheet. Use a fork to press them down slightly--the thicker they are, the softer and chewier they will be!
  5. Bake cookies for 7-8 minutes. It's very important that you don't over bake them! Remove and let cool for 10 minutes before sprinkling with flaked sea salt and serving.
