Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

You will never guess that these rich and fudgy chocolate peanut butter cookies are gluten-free! They are SO good!
Prep Time10 mins
Total Time25 mins
Servings: 17 cookies


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter I don't use natural for this recipe
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the peanut butter and sugar together until creamy and smooth. Add in the egg and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
  • Add the baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. Mix until just combined. Stir in the milk and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. The dough will be a little crumbly and that is ok. It will press together when you form the balls.
  • Form the cookies into balls, pressing the dough together, about 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough per cookie. Place the cookies onto prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Gently press down on the dough mounds with the  palm of your hand to flatten. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Note-I like to stick a few extra chocolate chips on top of the cookies before baking. Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days on the counter. These cookies also freeze well!
