For a while now, I’ve been seeing a Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter on other blogs. I finally went out and bought some. The verdict? I liked it. The peanut butter flavor is still strong but the dark chocolate adds a nice addition. It’s a bit like eating Reese’s peanut butter cups, but all blended together.

Of course I immediately had to bake with it. The first thing I wanted to make were flourless chocolate peanut butter cookies. I previously made regular peanut butter flourless cookies and was impressed with the texture and flavor despite the cookies being flourless.

The chocolate version wasn’t as sturdy, and too much pressure made them crumble and break. But they still tasted great. And they are oh so easy to make. One bowl, no mixer needed. Five minutes of prep time and they are ready to go in the oven.

Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Yield: 15 cookies

Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: 10 mins

Total Time: 15 mins


1 cup chocolate peanut butter
1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix everything except chocolate chips in medium bowl until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Batter will be very sticky and wet. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop generous 1 tablespoon dough and place onto cookie sheet, space about 2 inches apart. Using moistened hands, shape dough on sheets to form balls.

2. Bake cookies until golden about 10-12 minutes. Cookies will still be very soft and not set. Leave cookies on sheet to cool and set.

    oh my word, heaven in a jar!! Did you get yours on Amazon, like the link, or a grocery store around the area?

      I confess, I was lazy and got it from Amazon. Though I believe they sell it at Ralphs and some other places. I think if you go to their website you can do a search of what stores carry it. I remember seeing Ralphs but I don’t normally shop at Ralphs.

      Thanks for the info about Target. Yes, you should utilize child labor again to make these! Super easy and good.

    This looks like a great option for people with gluten issues since the PB doesn’t have any gluten in it either. Bookmarking this for my mom :)

      I didn’t even think about that, but that’s good to know for when I need a gluten free recipe too.

    This looks so yummy! I’ll definitely be making these for my chocolate-loving, gluten free father. Mm, mm good.

      They are pretty yummy. I love that they manage to have a real cookie feel without the flour
