Gluten and dairy-free, these healthy flourless cookies use less sugar than traditional cookies, but deliver intense peanut butter flavor.


  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup Sucanat (or brown sugar)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chunks (chips will work, too)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients except for the chocolate chunks until combined.  Stir in the chocolate chunks.  Refrigerate the dough for 15-30 minutes, optional.*
  3. Measure the dough into tablespoon-sized balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.  The dough will seem a little fall-y apart-y, but that’s how it should be.  Just make the balls and carry on.
  4.  Place the dough balls on your cookies sheet a few inches apart.  You should get about 15 cookies, more or less depending on the size of your balls.  I didn’t press the balls down at all, but if you want a less round cookie, go ahead and press them down.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.  They will seem a little soft coming right out of the oven, but transfer them to a wire rack to let them cool and they will harden as they cool.  Enjoy!


*This step is optional.  I did this because I have read that it helps flourless cookies have more body, and I didn’t want flat cookies.  You can skip it if you are in a hurry!
