  • 1 cup unsweetened, salted creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips or finely chopped chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheet with parchment paper, silpats, or coat with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, put the peanut butter, brown sugar, and egg. Use a rubber spatula to mash and stir the ingredients into a smooth batter. Add the chocolate, and stir again until evenly distributed.
  3. Pinch up a tablespoon of dough and roll in the palms of your hands into a smooth ball. Cover each baking sheet with 12 balls. Press a fork firmly into the dough, first in one direction, and then the opposite direction. If the dough crumbles a bit, just patch it back together.
  4. Bake until the cookies brown slightly and you start to see a hint of a darker rim around the cookie, 10 to 12 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and cool. Store in an air-tight container.
