If you’re anything like me, the combination is peanut butter and chocolate. There is just something about that sweet and salty taste that is just bomb af. As a kid, I was always sticking a spoon into the peanut butter jar and then dipping it into a mini chocolate chip bag. Not going to lie; I occasionally still do it…
My go-to brand of peanut butter was the stereotypical Skippy or Jif. As I got more into reading ingredient labels rather than just the nutrition label, I started to look for better choices. It isn’t just the nut in the ingredient label with some peanut butter (or any nut butter brand). It, more often than not, has sugar, corn syrup, and other preservatives.
That’s no Bueno for me!
I gradually made the change to natural peanut butter, but I still wasn’t thrilled. However, I was making progress (pats self on the back). The story’s moral is to find nut butter brands where the only ingredient is the nut or, better yet, make your own!
As for chocolate, EatingEvolved is a brand that I highly recommend. The ingredient list is very minimal, and it tastes delicious! Their spreads are a completely different story. As for chocolate alone, I recommend 72% or 100% for baking (or dipping in the nut butter jar)! Another cookie recipe you have to check it as my paleo chocolate drop cookies!

- Place the peanut butter and coconut sugar into a bowl +mix till combined.
- Gradually add in the coconut flour till you have a batter-like consistency.
- Use a cookie scoop + place on the baking sheet.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden + let cool.
- In a separate bowl, break up your chocolate bar + place in a bowl. In 10-second increments, melt in the microwave until smooth.
- Drizzle the chocolate on top + place cookies in the fridge to harden the chocolate and firm up the cookies.
This is, by far, one of my favorite cookie recipes! It is probably because I am obsessed with peanut butter and chocolate.
