Servings 18 cookies


  • 1 mixer Stand or Handheld, unless you use your own arm muscles
  • 1 Rubber spatula
  • 2 Cookie sheets or bar pans Use 1 and the time to bake all of the cookie dough will take longer
  • 1 Parchment paper to put on cookie sheets, if needed
  • 1 Cookie cooling rack
  • 1 Small spoon This is for scooping dough to make the cookies for baking


  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter organic, with no added sugar included
  • 1.5 cup coconut or date sugar white sugar is fine but not as good for you
  • 2 small-med eggs or 1 extra large egg should work
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup almond flour blanched or unblanched
  • 1.5 cup gluten free flour I use a 1-for-1 flour mix
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips of choice I use dark chocolate chips


  • Cream butter and peanut butter together (a mixer helps with this)
  • Add sugar, egg, vanilla to creamed butters. Mix again.
  • In separate medium sized bowl, mix dry ingredients together (flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • With mixer on low, mix dry ingredients with the creamed mixture
  • Fold in chocolate chips
  • With small spoon, spoon dough onto ungreased (or parchment paper lined) pan/sheet. The balls should be about 1" in diameter.
  • Bake for 8-9 minutes at 350 degrees. If you have it, use "convection bake" to bake evenly. In convection, they should bake faster so may be closer to 8 minutes. Check for light brown on bottom of cookies. Do not over cook or they get crispier.
  • Remove from oven, let them sit on sheet/pan for 1-2 min, then use flat metal spatula and place on cooling rack for 5-10 minutes
  • Store in a glass storage container with cover
