Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies – Deliciously thick and chewy cookies that are loaded with peanut butter flavour, and full of chocolate chips!
Who doesn’t love a good peanut butter cookie??
Today, I bring you my favourite peanut butter cookie recipe. These cookies are thick, soft and chewy on the inside, crispy on the outside. They’re loaded with peanut butter flavour, and stuffed full of chocolate chips. They also have a surprise peanut butter centre.
I absolutely love them, and so does the family!
How to make Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies
Ingredients you’ll need:
- plain OR all-purpose flour
- baking powder
- baking soda
- cornflour OR cornstarch
- unsalted butter
- caster OR granulated sugar
- light brown sugar
- large egg
- vanilla extract
- smooth peanut butter
- chocolate chips
To make these cookies, simply start off by scooping out 16 teaspoons of peanut butter, and placing them onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Freeze until solid – about 1 – 2 hours.
Next, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cornflour, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter and sugars until combined. Add the egg, vanilla, and peanut butter, and mix until combined. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined, then fold in the chocolate chips.
Next, roll the cookie dough into 2oz balls, and flatten them out. Place the frozen peanut butter into the centres, then roll the dough back into balls. Place them onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Bake for 10 – 12 minutes. Do not over-bake, they will firm up as they cool. Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
