  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips dairy free or regular
  • flaky sea salt for finishing (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the peanut butter, maple syrup, cocoa powder, egg, vanilla, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Beat on medium speed until incorporated, then stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Using a 1/2" cookie scoop, scoop the dough out onto the prepared pan about 1/2" apart. Flatten the dough slightly as they don't spread, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a wire rack, then sprinkle with flaky sea salt, if using, and cool completely. Enjoy!


  • I prefer natural peanut butter with minimal sugar for this recipe, but use your favorite. Creamy or crunchy both work equally well. Just keep in mind that the texture of the cookies may vary depending depending on the type of peanut butter that you use.
  • Honey or coconut sugar may be substituted for the maple syrup.
  • Use dairy free chocolate chips to make these cookies dairy free.
  • Store cookies in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. While these cookies are crisp fresh from the oven, they become soft once they're stored in an air tight container because they're flourless. They still taste amazing!
