TOTAL TIME :8-10minutes5minutes10minutes
  • 1 large egg (can try with a flax or chia egg)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (sub brown sugar or sugar in the raw)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons softened butter (sub softened coconut oil)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened unsalted peanut butter (rec. organic. Sub almond or sunbutter)
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, plus more for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a large nonstick baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk to incorporate.
  3. Drop approximately 3 tablespoons mixture per cookie onto the baking sheet, leaving at least 1 1/2 inches between each. I use a 1 ounce retractable ice cream scoop.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are just turning golden brown, but the top is still a light in color and soft. Allow to cool 10 minutes before enjoying. Cookies store for 48 hours on the counter at room temperature, in the fridge for one week, or in the freezer 1-2 months.

    made these at my daughter’s 2 nights ago and I’m making them tonite for us. I added some chocolate chips to the last cookie batter.

    • Yay!!!! Chocolate chips is ALWAYS a good idea! I hope you enjoyed them! Thanks so much for sharing!

  • dlakerz

    Best cookies I’ve ever made! I added dark chocolate chips and a scoop of vital proteins collagen peptides and they taste like heaven! I used a local peanut from Saratoga Springs that has no added sugar and is made with dried cranberries! Thanks for sharing this recipe Lauralea!!

    • Hi Elyse!!!! Ummm I am DROOLING over here that sounds divine!!!! I need to add Vital Proteins next time that’s such a good idea. What’s the name of the peanut butter company?! I want to try it! Thanks so much for sharing!!!❤

    • Laura Lea Bryant

      I think I responded to this but I just want to thank you again AND note that your idea of collagen peptides is brilliant! Thank you so much for sharing!

    Would it be possible to sub honey or maple syrup for the coconut sugar?

    • Laura Lea Bryant

      Hi! I think that a liquid sweetener is going to make them too runny unfortunately. You’re welcome to try, but I’d recommend sticking with any kind of dry sweetener. Brown sugar, sugar in the raw or even zero calorie monkfruit sweetener (health food stores or whole foods).

    Is it okay to add some flax meal for fiber? If so how much you think would be okay? By the way just did them without the flax and they taste amazinggggggggg but was wondering about flax meal. Thanks!! 🙂

    • Laura Lea Bryant

      I haven’t tested it with added flax meal so I can’t say for sure, but I think 2 tablespoons would be fine!
