I’ll just say – if you’re a chocolate lover, then I’m about to make your sweet chocolatey dreams come true.  These cookies are insanely soft and gooey and crazy delicious. The cherry on top of this chocolate cookie situation is that they only require three ingredients, none of which are oil or butter. (Psst… we’re going to use nut butter, instead!)

And I will say, if you choose to use a nut butter other than peanut butter (such as almond butter or a mixed nut butter) then you won’t taste the nut butter at all… you’ll just have a batch of super fudgy chocolate cookies loaded with chocolate chunks. YUM.

Why this Recipe Works:

  • Created for use with my Peanut’s Bake Shop Midnight Chocolate Chunk Cookie Kit, this recipe doesn’t require any of the usual cookie dough ingredients! This recipe really couldn’t be any simpler.
  • The addition of the nut butter makes these cookies super moist and decadent without the use of oil or butter.
  • These cookies are super fun to make with kids – my boys LOVE to lick the spoon covered in cookie dough once we’re done (see James below.) But then again, who doesn’t?!

Seriously, one of the best things about vegan baking is you can eat the raw dough and not have to worry about getting sick!

Which nut butter goes best with this recipe?

  • I prefer to use a runnier almond butter that only lists “almonds” in the ingredients. If your almond butter contains palm oil, it may be too thick and not mix in as well.  I also like mixed nut and seed butters, such as THIS brand.

How to Make Fudgy Oil-Free Midnight Chocolate Chunk Cookies:

1. First, preheat your oven to 350º. Then, open your Peanut’s Bake Shop Midnight Chocolate Chunk Cookie Kit and pour the contents into a mixing bowl.

2. Next, add the creamy nut butter to the mix – the runnier the better. (Disregard the oil called for on the package.)

3. Add the water to this bowl too, and stir well until all flour is incorporated.

4. Drop 12 mounds of dough onto a parchment-lined or nonstick baking sheet.

5. Bake in the oven for about 12 minutes. It’s better to slightly under bake than over bake.

6. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for at least two minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. Enjoy!

  • For an even nuttier treat, try adding 1/4 – 1/3 cup of chopped walnuts or any other nut to your dough before baking. You could even try shredded coconut too.
