  • 1 cup all natural peanut butter I used salted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup monkfruit or coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, a silpat mat or lightly coat with cooking spray. In a large bowl, stir together cookie dough ingredients (peanut butter, egg, monkfruit or coconut sugar and vanilla) until fully combined.

  • Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the dough into your hands and form a ball, then flatten out into a disc-like cookie shape. Place on baking sheet and repeat until you have worked through all of the dough. Using a large fork, flatten cookies slightly then turn fork going in the opposite direction and flatten just slightly again (this will create a criss-cross pattern).

  • Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are cooked through, golden brown and fragrant. Cool to room temperature.

  • Melt chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler. Stir coconut oil into melted chocolate. Dip one-third of the cookie into the chocolate and then place back on the cookie sheet. Sprinkle with a bit of flaky sea salt and repeat until you have worked through all of the cookies. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for one hour or until the chocolate has set up. Enjoy!
