Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookies

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 17 mins

I found this in a UK supermarket magazine. These are frequently requested at my house. Makes a lovely brown cookie, with peanut chunks.


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180C/Gas 4. Line two trays with baking paper.
  2. In a bowl mix the butter, brown sugar, and peanut butter.
  3. Add the beaten egg and beat well.
  4. Melt the chocolate. Either in the microwave (careful it burns VERY easily) or in a large bowl over a simmering pan of water.
  5. Add the chocolate to the mixture and stir till even.
  6. Slowly add the flour, being sure the dough is evenly mixed.
  7. I generally use my hand to roll the dough into one inch balls which I then press onto the tray.
  8. Bake for 12 minutes, then leave to cool another 5. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to harden.

I wasn’t too sure about this at first. No baking powder, baking soda, vanilla? Turns out this was a fantastic chocolate cookie! I don’t eat sweets often and I even had to have some of these. I only had smooth peanut butter so I chopped up some peanuts for a substitute. I did miss where it stated to flatten them after rolling them into a ball and I baked them in the ball form. They were crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle – just right! I think if I do flatten them next time I will shorten the baking time because these were done perfectly being plump as they were. Thanks for posting this Kate.
