It was Sunday morning. R was making his lunches for the week and next thing I see he’s pulling out ingredients for these healthy peanut butter cookies.
Turns out he was having a major craving for cookies. He couldn’t decide if he want peanut butter cookies or chocolate chip cookies.
I suggested, “Why don’t you just add chocolate chips to the remaining batter of the cookies?”.
According to him, I’m a genius. Yes, baby I know. I am the one who came up with these healthy peanut butter cookies to begin with. Why not make them into chocolate peanut butter cookies also.
Baking Tips for these Peanut Butter Cookies
- Add a handful of chocolate chips to these healthy peanut butter cookies for that delish chocolate and peanut butter combo.
- You want to let these cookies FULLY cool before removing from the pan. If you remove too soon they will crumble on you.
So in reality, you can thank my husband for these. They were developed ALL because R loves cookies and if he’s going to devour cookies he’s by gosh darn going to be eating healthy cookies. ALLLLL the cookies.
Meanwhile, I’ll sit over here eating my homemade peppermints. Yes, I will choose peppermints over peanut butter cookies. R says I’m crazy. What would you choose?

This looks so yummy. We are making it right now. I have a question: The consistency is so liquid and sticky that we can’t really roll the dough into balls and it’s even hard to flatten them. Does it need more almond flour?
Keep stirring it – you need to make sure the almond flour is evenly stirred and it will end up turning into a dough-like mixture. It should not be liquid so if it is there is either too much oil in your peanut butter and you need more almond flour to combat that oil. Hope this helps!
The recipe calls for one egg, but the video shows one egg white…I think that is why the dough is not thick.
I accidentally gave it two stars and couldn’t undo it so I refreshed the page and gave it five stars. I’m so sorry! I’m really excited to make these !
I just made them. I noticed in the video you added salt and only egg white but the recipe does not mention salt, nor does it mention to separate the egg.
