  • ½ cup butter (vegan or regular)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup cookie butter


  • Scoop ½ cup of cookie butter into an airtight container. Cover it and place in the freezer for 1-2 hours, or until the cookie butter is frozen/firm enough that you can easily chop it up. When it's ready, leave it in the freezer while you make the cookie dough.
  • Preheat oven to 325°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, combine cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer with the paddle attachment or a handheld mixer, combine butter and sugars, mixing until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the eggs and vanilla extract, and beat until just combined (do not over-mix!).
  • Mix in the dry ingredients until a dough forms. Don't over-mix!
  • Remove the cookie butter from the freezer and chop it into small pieces (see photo above). It will start to soften right away so try to move quickly!
  • Fold the cookie butter into the dough and use a medium cookie scoop or spoon to make 1.5 tablespoon sized balls and place them on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges look just set. The middles will look soft.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


Mix-ins: These cookies taste great just as chocolate cookies!  You can leave out the cookie butter entirely or add in ½ - ¾ cup chocolate chips or other mix-ins instead.
