Gluten Free, Sugar Free Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Phew, that's a mouth full of a title.
But also a mouth full of peanut butter, chocolatey goodness!

I happened upon this recipe a couple of years ago and thought that I had really found something exciting. Turns out that this is one of the "age-old" recipes that lots of people were already enjoying!
I loved it then because of the minimal ingredients and ease.  I love it now because after switching out an ingredient or two, it is one more treat that I can actually enjoy too.

You have to make these at least once...
.....but that will just be the beginning of a long and lovely relationship! ;)

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup Natural Peanut Butter
1 cup  Raw Coconut Sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg

*add in about 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the above ingredients and place balls on cookie sheet
Gently press the top of each cookie with a fork.

Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
Let cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before removing.
Enjoy warm with a glass of almond or coconut milk!

I have just begun experimenting with Coconut Sugar over the holidays. This is the only the second treat that I have made with it.
I think I want to try this recipe next time with a flax egg and make it vegan too!
Yummmm....a plate full of cookies.
Do you think my family liked them?

Have you baked with Coconut Sugar before? Share some recipes!

Have a wonderful weekend,



  1. gahhh cookies! :) mmmm!

  2. Mmm, I love a good choco chip cookie. And an easy one, at that.
    I was on the hunt for a good caramel corn recipe with NO corn syrup, blech, and a substitute for the regular sugar. Found this little gem which uses coconut sugar and 2 Tbsp honey. I bet you could replace the butter for coconut oil and it'd be super tasty, too.
    Bake it on 200 for a bit, stirring often, if you want it crunchy. Eat it straight from the bowl if you like it gooey and chewy. It's my new fave!

    1. Oh my! Amy, that sounds delicious! I will have to give that one a try very soon. Thanks for sharing! :)

  3. These look so good! Ive never tried coconut sugar before, ill have to check it out
