- 1 cup peanut butter (make sure the peanut butter does not contain high fructose corn syrup)
- 1/3 cup sugar + 1 tsp for sprinkling on cookies before cooking
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheet with coconut oil (spray or solid).
In a medium size bowl, mix peanut butter and egg until fully combined.
In another medium bowl, mix sugar, coconut flour and baking powder.
Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet and mix well with a wooden spoon. Make sure all lumps from the dry mixture are gone. Add the chocolate chips and mix again.
Form cookie shapes (1 – 2 tbsp worth) with your hands and place on the cookie sheet. The cookies will not expand during cooking. Sprinkle the extra tsp of sugar on top of the cookies before baking.
Bake cookies for 7 – 10 minutes.
Let the cookies cool for about 10 minutes once removed from the oven. They will continue to firm up when removed from the heat.
