One of my favorite combinations is peanut butter and chocolate. That's why I decided to try this recipe from Zoe Bakes. If you're as big of a peanut butter fan as I am, you will absolutely love these cookies.
- 1 and 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter at room temperature
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup chunky peanut butter (Skippy Super Chunk works well)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups peanut flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 4 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Using a mixer, mix together the butter and the brown sugar with the paddle attachment for 2 minutes on medium speed. Add the peanut butter and mix well. Add the eggs one at a time. Now add the vanilla.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the peanut flour, baking soda and salt. I bought my peanut flour at Trader Joe's. I couldn't find it anywhere else.
Add this to the peanut butter mixture and mix until doughy.
Now add the chocolate. I mixed it in by hand. Roll balls of dough with your hands that amount to be about 3 tablespoons. Use a fork to flatten them and create a crosshatch pattern.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
These are insanely rich! I can only eat one at a time... which is probably a good thing. Enjoy!
