Gluten Free Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Chunk Cookies

Yield: 2 dozen cookies

3 tablespoons cocoa powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup chunky peanut butter

¾ cup dark brown sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 whole egg plus 1 egg white, whisked

3-ounces chocolate (containing 60% to 68% cocoa solids), chopped into small chip-sized pieces

 

Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a small bowl, mix to combine cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

Mix the peanut butter with the brown sugar on low speed in a stand mixer using the paddle attachment for approximately 3 minutes. Add in the vanilla and eggs. Mix to combine. Add ingredients from small bowl and mix until fully combined. Add chocolate and mix until just combined.

Using a spoon, form cookies into 1 ¼ inch sized balls and place, evenly spaced, on a parchment lined sheet pan. Using the back of a fork, gently press balls down to form a disc shape.

Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely so cookies can firm up before eating.
