This is taken from the award-winning "The Dessert-Lover's Cookbook" by Marlene Sorosky-Gray...These cookies are sweet so you might want to reduce the sugar slightly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a large cookie sheet/s with parchment paper, then butter the parchment paper or use a cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl beat together the butter with both sugars, maple extract and peanut butter until well blended.
  4. Add in the eggs; beat until well combined.
  5. In another bowl mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt; add to the creamed mixture; beat until combined.
  6. Add in oats, chocolate chips and peanuts; mix until combined.
  7. Drop by 2-tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet.
  8. With a lightly-floured fork, flatten slightly into about 2-1/2-inch rounds.
  9. Bake (one pan at a time) for about 12-14 minutes.
  10. Let stand 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then using a spatula transfer cookies to racks to cool (if the cookies are too hot they will break).

This was a great recipe. I did not have any problems with the cookies sticking. I used the Silicone cooking mats on my air bake cookie sheets.

I made these for DH and so left out the chocolate (cocoa & chips) and peanuts. I used 3/4 cup of each sugar and he thinks they are great. They did spread a bit but I expect thats largely because I left out the "chunks". The maple is a very nice change of flavor and it works very nicely with the peanut butter. Thx Kit for another terrific recipe.

These were a hit at our house and I didn't even put in the chocolate chips and peanuts (didn't have them on hand) They still turned out great, with a nice soft texture and lots of peanut buttery chocolate flavour. I'm already planning the next batch (I'm going to try them with white chocolate chips mmmmmmm). Oh and also I used whole wheat flour.
