Alternative title: How to be popular in your family and make batch of cookies disappear in 1 hour flat.

Made with ghee, coconut sugar, a touch of pure maple syrup, creamy peanut butter, gluten-free all-purpose flour and a chopped up dark chocolate bar, these cookies are melt-in-your mouth DELICIOUS!

…And are soooo peanut buttery, chocolatey, and the perfect balance of salty and sweet when you sprinkle them with some coarse sea salt.

It’s all about the sprinkle of coarse sea salt at the end, my friends! Coarse sea salt a true cookie makes.

I made this batch of cookies for a family dinner and not only did the cookies go quickly with enthusiasm, but each of my family members raved while savoring them.

Each and every one of them made a comment on how much they loved the salty-sweet combo.

It was like a broken record cookie rave, sponsored by sugar and burritos.

Seriously, my people descended upon these peanut butter chocolate chip cookies like vultures.

This is why they’re my people.

So let’s bake them, already!

How to Make Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Add the ghee (or butter or coconut oil) to a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, along with the coconut sugar and pure maple syrup. Note: I use coconut sugar + pure maple syrup as a way to mimic brown sugar. The combination just works wonders! Beat on medium-high speed until the ghee is creamy and fluffy.

Add in the peanut butter and vanilla extract and mix until combined. Add the egg and beat just until combined.

In a separate bowl, stir together the flour baking powder, and sea salt (and cinnamon if adding). Pour the flour mixture into the stand mixer and beat until dough forms. Beat in the chopped dark chocolate bar.

Refrigerate dough at least 30 minutes (up to 2 days) to allow dough to set up.

When ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Scoop spoonfuls of dough onto a large baking sheet – I use a small ice cream scooper for perfect-sized cookies.

Bake 8 to 15 minutes, until cookies reach desired level of crisp. I bake mine for 12 minutes.

Allow cookies to cool 10 minutes. Sprinkle cookies with coarse sea salt and enjoy!

Hi! Should the coconut oil be solid or melted? Also, can you use natural peanut butter? Thanks! - Cassie

Hi Cassie!

I would leave the coconut oil softened (similar to the consistency of softened butter). So not necessarily rock solid, but also not melted if that makes sense :) Hope you love them!
