  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1 tsp. alcohol-free vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1⁄4 tsp. coarse Himalayan sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, mix together peanut butter, sugar, vanilla, maple syrup, and egg.
  • Spoon out about 1 tablespoon dough for each cookie and place about 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Use prongs of a fork to gently press down and flatten cookies. Turn fork and press down again to make a crosshatch pattern. Lightly sprinkle salt on top of cookies.
  • Bake 5 minutes, then turn cookie sheet 180° and continue baking. Check on cookies 5 minutes later—they should be golden brown around the edges.
