Ingredients

Wet

  • 1/2 cup - 1 stick of softened, unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup unsalted natural peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Dry

  • 1 1/4 cup flour (all purpose or gluten free 1:1 mix)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chunks

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or a reusable silicone baking mat.
  • In a medium bowl, cream the butter and maple syrup for 30-60 seconds until smooth. Stir in the peanut butter, egg and vanilla, until smooth.
  • Fold in the flour, baking soda and salt until well combined and there’s no flour visible, but don’t overmix.
  • Cover and transfer to the fridge to chill for 30 minutes, for the butters to firm up.
  • Roll out 2 tablespoons of the dough at a time into balls and place on the lined baking sheet.
  • Press a chocolate chunk into the middle of each ball and flatten slightly.
  • Transfer to the oven to bake for 10 minutes, until the tops are firm and bottoms are just slightly golden.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely and enjoy.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days or for up to 1 month in the freezer.
