  • 1 cup natural peanut butter (regular peanut butter works too)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or cane sugar
  • 1 flax egg (or a regular egg)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • Vegan chocolate chunks I used Enjoy Life Mega Chunks


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Mix together the ground flaxseed with the water to make your flaxseed egg and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the peanut butter, sugar, flaxseed egg, vanilla and baking soda until well combined.
  • Scoop 1 Tablespoon of the cookie dough, roll into a ball and set about 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate chunk into each cookie. Allow to cool completely. The chocolate will harden as it cools.
  • Store in an airtight container on the counter for 3-4 days or in the fridge or freezer for longer storage.



  • If you don't need the cookies to be vegan, you can use a regular egg instead of a flaxseed egg!
  • Make a Hanukkah version by using chocolate gelt instead of chocolate chunk.
