Grateful: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

So, I’ve been kinda sick and kinda overwhelmed with stuff and there’s been very sad stuff happening to a friend of mine. This week I’m keeping my grateful simple. Sometimes, when the chips are down, you just gotta be grateful for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. To my peanut butter loving Lady, these are for you x

I went to a 1st birthday party on the weekend and one of the guests brought these along (Hi Caryn!). Nom, nom, freakin’ NOM. Seriously addictive AND gluten free. Not that I need to worry about gluten, but doesn’t it sound healthy? Yeah… don’t be fooled.


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 x 375g jar peanut butter
1 cup dark choc chips
1 cup caster sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract/essence
1 egg

Mix it all up with a mixing implement. I used a fork, but what evs. TRY NOT TO EAT IT ALL before you splodge balls of it onto a baking paper lined cookie sheet. I used a spoon to create balls and pressed them flat with a fork. Bake them in a moderate oven for 10 – 12 minutes, or until just golden brown. Leave to cool for 5 minutes – they are very fragile at first – then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Or eat some warm. With a glass of milk.

These are soft, salty-sweet and so very, very moreish. You have been warned.

What’s your favourite cookie? I think these might be mine…
What are you grateful for this week?

p.s. If y’all follow my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages you may have noticed that sugar is back in my life. For now. To be continued….

  1. They sound absolutely delicious and I’m going to have a go but am very surprised that someone took nuts to a kids birthday party. Usually a total no no nowadays. :(

    1. You know, I didn’t even think of that! Even though we’re strictly no nuts at work (school) I didn’t blink to see them at the kids party. I guess there was hardly any kids there, it was a 1st bday party of friends with mostly child free peeps. I think if there was nuts at a five year olds party with all kiddos I’d be a bit surprised.

    1. I was thinking of trying dextrose or rice syrup… I just hate it when I try something and they don’t work out though. If you manage to figure it out with less sugar please come back and let me know!

      1. I know what you mean Kylie – It’s always so disappointing and disheartening when something just doesn’t work. I’m actually working on a vegan cookie recipe myself, but removing sugar is a problem. My replacement at the moment is organic palm coconut (unrefined) sugar and organic molasses. Still fructose though… Bummer!

    1. I was thinking of making a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream! Just make up a batch of this stuff and mix it through some vanilla ice cream. Now THAT would be delish.

    1. I seriously, seriously could just nearly do that. In fact I nearly did! The whole batch was gone in three days. The dough is amazing on it’s own, I think half a batch got gobbled up before it made it to the oven. Whoops! I won’t be making them again for a while, they’re too dangerous :P

    1. It’s pure evil, right? Stuff is looking good thanks, my friend had some good news. A couple more weeks and some more good news for her with make the world of difference. Hate seeing my friends living through hard times :(

  2. Kylie!!! This may be the first grateful post I wish I hadn’t read! :) I am gluten-free, in love with dark chocolate and adore peanut butter… and I’m trying to give up sugar!! This is a recipe for disaster! :) But I am so glad to hear you’re feeling better! Elisa x

    1. Haha! Yes, I’m a bit sorry that I was ever introduced to these. I definitely need to make them strategically next time – in time to share with friends instead of to keep at home. Good luck with giving up sugar.


    Like I said on facebook.. I have Peanut butter about to go past its BB date.. AND choc chips in the fridge that desperately need using up!


    Plus with the headcold I have I need some sugar to keep me going!!

    1. I hope that you enjoyed the cookies AND that your head cold has gone. Head colds are the worst.
