Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 pk Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides*
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 pinch sea salt flakes
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 375F degrees. Spray two large cookie sheets with coconut oil and set aside. 

  2. In a medium bowl add almond flour, baking soda and Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. Whisk to combine

  3. In a large bowl combine the butter, peanut butter, coconut sugar, egg and vanilla extract. Whisk vigorously until the mixture is smooth

  4. Pour half of the flour into the peanut butter bowl and fold. Add remaining flour and chocolate chips, fold until uniform but don’t overwork it.

  5. Scoop a small amount of the chocolate chip peanut butter dough to form into a round shape and start adding it to the cookie sheet, leaving enough room for the cookie dough balls to melt into a cookie shape. Proceed until all the dough has been used.

  6. Bake at 375F degrees, top rack of the oven for about 8-9 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle cookies with sea salt flakes. Allow the cookies to cool off completely before storing
