Cookie Week

Peanut Butter Choc Chip Cookies

Yes, I baked tonight. After the mini meatloaf pastries, I was definitely in the mood for more kitchen action. Nothing too strenuous and nothing I had to really think about. I was in desperate need for coffee and as I had made choc chip cookies a couple of nights ago, I felt that more cookies were needed to go with my coffee.

Checked the pantry and it was well stocked. A full jar of peanut butter was staring back at me and the decision had been made. Peanut butter with dark choc chip cookies…comforting, delicious and 5 mins in the oven…what more could one ask for?


  • 1 cup (260g) crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 cup (200g) brown sugar
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup (185g) dark choc bits


Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly grease two baking trays and line with non-stick baking paper. Combine peanut butter, sugar, bicarbonate of soda and egg in a bowl. Stir in choc bits.

Roll teaspoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the prepared tray. Press lightly with a fork. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until light golden. Leave to cool on the trays then place into an airtight container.
