  • First preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Stir jar of SunButter before measuring. Add SunButter and brown sugar to a large mixing bowl or stand mixer. Mix until combined.
  • Once combined, add in egg, vanilla extract and baking soda. Stir to combine.
  • Fold in dark chocolate chips.
  • Use a cookie scoop to scoop balls of dough onto lined baking pan. Place at least 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are just set in the middle.
  • Remove from oven. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired. Cool on pan for 10 minutes. Then carefully transfer to a cooling rack.


  • Stir SunButter before using.  The oil separation inside the jar is natural.
  • Tightly pack light brown sugar.
  • Coconut sugar can be used instead but yields a slightly more gritty texture.  Dark brown sugar can also be used but will make these cookies much darker in color.
  • The cookie dough should be easily scoop-able and not sticky.
  • Use an ice cream scoop or cookie scoop to scoop equal sized balls of dough.
  • Bake until middles of cookies are just barely set.  
  • After baking, handle carefully.  These cookies are fragile and will firm up as they cool.
  • Store covered at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the fridge for up to 7 days.
