No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies {Vegan + Gluten Free}

These no bake chocolate peanut butter cookies are made with just a handful of healthy ingredients. No baking required, very little clean up, and the most amazing peanut butter cookies that taste almost like a chocolate peanut butter cup when dipped in chocolate.

– Peanut butter (substitute with almond butter for a paleo option) – Maple syrup – Coconut flour – Vanilla extract – Kosher salt  – Dark chocolate, melted (optional) – Flaky sea salt (optional)


Make the peanut butter cookie dough. In a large bowl combine peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, kosher salt, and coconut flour.

Allow the dough to thicken. Set aside for about 5 minutes so the coconut flour can absorb any moisture in the dough. If after 5 minutes the dough seems too sticky to handle, add a little more coconut flour at a time.

Form into cookie shape. Once the dough is the consistency of a thick cookie dough, roll it into 1 inch size balls. Gently press to shape and flatten, pinching the edges together if they start to crack.

Chill the cookies to set. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or in the freezer for 10-15. While the cookies are chilling, go ahead and melt your dark chocolate if using.
