If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve been posting peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipes to my feed as I test them in search of the best and simplest peanut butter cookie. I’m a big fan of a dessert you can whip up in just a couple of minutes using just four main ingredients! It doesn’t get any better than that, am I right? These also might be the first time I didn’t top a cookie with flaked sea salt. What do you think? Do these cookies need some fancy salt on top?

What you need to make these melt-in-your-mouth peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies

Below are not just the ingredients I used but the actual brands. This post is not sponsored by any of these brands but I wanted to be transparent about what I’m using so you can get the same results when you go to bake these cookies.

  • peanut butter (I used a no-stir Smart Balance)
  • granulated sweetener (I used Truvia but coconut sugar or brown sugar will also get the job done!)
  • dairy free and sugar free chocolate (I used Lily’s because well, I just don’t use any other brand πŸ™‚ )
  • vanilla extract (I used Primal Palette)
  • baking soda

Life Changing Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Soft and chewy, these flourless peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies come together in just few minutes using just four main ingredients! Made gluten free and dairy free!
Course: Dessert
Keyword: cookies, dairy free, gluten free, peanut butter
Servings: 12

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter I used a no-stir
  • 1 cup granulated sweetener can use Truvia, granulated erythritol, coconut sugar or regular cane sugar
  • 1 egg large
  • 100 grams sugar-free, dairy free dark chocolate, chopped Lily’s
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • In a mixing bowl, use a handheld mixer to beat the peanut butter, sweetener and baking soda until well combined. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and continue mixing until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chunks but reserve a few for topping.
  • Use a cookie scooper to make 1 1/2 inch balls. Place the balls on the baking sheet and use the back of a measuring cup to press them down just slightly. They will expand a little bit but you want to keep them thick.
  • Bake for 12-13 minutes. You want the edges to just start to brown but the center will look like it’s not quite done–that’s okay! About 1-2 minutes before you remove the cookies from the oven, press a piece of chocolate chunk in the center to create a chocolate puddle. 
  • Remove from oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to continue cooling for another 10-20 minutes. These cookies will be super fragile for the first 30 minutes.

So simple and delicious to make! I love that the only special ingredient I needed was the dairy free chocolate, and I already had bought dairy free semi-sweet chocolate chunks, so I used those. For the granulated sugar, I used dark brown sugar. They turned out great!

These are Amaaaazing! I used an 86% dark chocolate bar, chopped up and they were pure perfection. I am a chocolate chip cookie snob and this is THE best one I’ve ever found that’s on plan for me! Thank you πŸ™‚

Nutritional info please., they look amazing!

Hi karla,

I don’t usually count up nutritional information but I actually happen to have this one and per cookie using granulated erythritol it’s roughly 370 calories, 24g fat, 13g net carbs, 12g protein. Hope this helps πŸ™‚

I only get 160 calories per cookie, I used Stevia. How did you get 370 calories?

Came out lovely. A little too sweet for me, going to try again with less monk fruit. I used sugar free Sunbutter. My dough made 17 cookies and net carbs were 1.77grams

That sounds so good with sun butter. I’ve definitely made this with less granulated sweetener before and it turned out great.
