Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


I didn’t love the last peanut butter cookie I made, so I decided to try again and adjust a couple of things. I added chocolate chips in lieu of cocoa – I wanted this to be a dominantly peanut butter cookie, so I didn’t want to overdo the chocolate. I think they turned out quite well! 



  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 70g peanut butter
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2.5 tbsp. milk*


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Cream together butter and peanut butter until well mixed, and add sugars and vanilla
  3. Mix flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a separate bowl. 
  4. Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Mix thoroughly (do not overmix). 
  5. Add chocolate chips and mix gently until evenly dispersed
  6. Add milk (slightly more or less as needed) until mixture holds together well. 
  7. Drop tablespoon sized balls on an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake for 8-10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through. 

*The dough ended up being really sticky, and the cookies spread out a lot. I prefer smaller cookies, so I would use less milk next time.
