Easy Chocolate Chunk Nut Butter Cookies
Easy, tasty, grain-free with a low carb version, these easy chocolate chunk nut butter cookies also have a nut-free version.
These easy-to-bake cookies are grain-free, with paleo, low carb, and nut-free options.
I have been craving these cookies, ever since I stopped eating gluten and higher carb foods.
I finally made some that were almost as good as I remember them being.
These are somewhat crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. But, the best part is the chocolate chunks!
I made these with almond butter, sunflower seed butter (the nut-free kind), and even a batch with peanut butter for the hubby.
I have been enjoying the yumminess with my morning coffee.
I have always preferred to have sweets in the morning instead of the evening, that is unless I can have them at both times.
If they are low enough in carbs and high in protein like these tasty morsels, then why not?

Easy Chocolate Chunk Nut Butter Cookies
- ⅔ cup nut butter of choice: almond butter sun butter, or peanut butter (try to use unsweetened or lower carb brands)
- ⅔ cup sweetener of choice: erythritol for low carb or coconut sugar for paleo
- 1 large egg
- ⅓ cup butter or coconut oil melted
- 5 tablespoon coconut flour like this one
- ⅓ cup dark chocolate chips or chunks: I used this brand chips for paleo & for low carb I used these sugar free chips (or can chop up a low carb chocolate bar), or make your own homemade sugar free low carb chocolate chips.
- Preheat oven to 350 F, and line or grease a baking sheet. in a large mixing bowl combine the first 5 ingredients. mix together thoroughly. Add the chocolate chips or chunks and stir into the dough.
- Put mixing bowl with dough in the freezer for 10 minutes (this helps the dough mold better and not spread while baking).
- Remove from freezer and spoon rounded tbsps onto the cookies sheet. I rolled mine into balls and then pressed down to flatten a bit with a fork.
- Bake for 15 minutes to 20, or until browned. Remove from oven and cool completely, as they will be too soft to remove until cooled. These are even better the next day after being in the fridge overnight, as the flavors will intensify.

Thank you so much Marsha 🙂
Lisa @ Low Carb Yum
I love making nut butter cookies and love that you provided all the options. However, I've never added coconut flour. It does look like a higher rise cookie than just using nut butter alone.
Thanks Lisa, Yes it does make them fluff up during baking more.
Annie @ Annie's Noms
Love these! Nut butter is the perfect addition to these cookies, just delicious!
Thanks Annie 🙂
what a great idea! I love the chocolate chunks and nut butter idae in a cookie! I recently used chocolate chunks in sweet potato granola and it was divine. this looks like a really good recipe. I love coconut sugar. i wonder if maple syrup could be used to lower the glycemic level a bit? Totally love this recipe!
Thank you Diane for your very kind words!

Coconut sugar is not paleo.
MDI, this is the consensus on coconut sugar: http://ultimatepaleoguide.com/is-coconut-sugarcoconut-nectar-paleo/ It states clearly that it is paleo, although maybe not be whole thirty, if that is what you are referring to.
Goodness. Cannot wait for the next special occasion to wow people with these!
They look delicious! Great job!
These look delicious. I'm a sucker for cookies. 🙂 Pinning for later!
Yum! These cookies sound awesome, and I love the photos!
Hi! Would love to try this recipe but don't keep coconut flour on hand, could I sub with almond?
Joy, I think you could sub with 3/4 cup almond flour. I have not tried it, but that is what I use if I were going to use that. Try that amount, and if the dough looks too thin then add a little more.
