Browned Butter Peanut Butter Sugar Cookies

Unbelievably soft and chewy and loaded with a double-delight of browned butter and peanut butter, these addicting sugar-coated cookies will be requested again and again!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 1 dozen cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup additional coconut sugar for rolling


  • Place butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally until butter is browned and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  • Place slightly-cooled browned butter in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and add sugar. Beat on medium speed until combined. Add egg, yolk, peanut butter, vanilla, and yogurt to mixer and mix on medium speed until smooth and creamy.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to liquid mixture and mix until a dough forms.
  • Roll cookie dough into 1-in balls and then gently roll around in additional sugar. Place 1-in apart on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Using a fork, gently press a criss-cross in each ball, flattening them slightly.
  • Bake cookies at 350F 9 minutes or until edges just start to turn golden (middles will still seem very soft---this ok) Cool cookies on baking sheet 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy IMMEDIATELY!
