  1. Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Coat cookie sheets with cooking spray or line them with parchment paper.
  2. Place peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave on high power for about 30-45 seconds, or until the peanut butter is melted, stirring once or twice as it heats.
  3. In large bowl add flour, baking soda, and salt. Add peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla and stir until blended. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Drop dough onto the prepared baking sheet, allowing about 2 tbsp for each cookie. Flatten slightly.
  5. Bake 15-17 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for about 5 minutes on the cookie sheet. Transfer to a wire rack and allow them to cool completely.

Excellent. Great tasting and easy to make. I added about 1/2 cup extra flour because the dough seemed really moist (I used light spelt flour -- that may have made the difference).

These are DELICIOUS. I was impressed with the taste and texture with so few ingredients, and no refined sugars, to boot! I halved the recipe but still ended up with 20 pretty large cookies - they spread out more than I had expected and would probably make 24 or even 30 smaller ones with the same amount of batter next time. I also found that folding the chocolate chips in immediately caused them to start to melt into the batter because of the warmth of the melter peanut butter, though I had to heat my PB on the stove (no microwave), which may have made it warmer. Will definitely make again!
