I was all set to make peanut butter cookies over the weekend, then came across a recipe for double chocolate peanut butter ones, and decided to make those instead.  Recipe is slightly modified from one on Meaningful Eats (


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup smooth natural peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • sprinkle of sea salt
  • 1/3 cup cacoa powder
  • 2 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, stir together the coconut oil, peanut butter, and brown sugar.  Add the vanilla and eggs, mixing until well combined.  Add in the baking soda and salt, and then blend in the cacoa powder.  Add the almond flour, 1 cup at a time, stirring well each time.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Add dough by the tablespoon onto baking sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes, until cookies slightly brown at the edges.  Cool for a bit before serving.
