Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

The best ever peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies! Roll in sugar for a perfectly crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside cookie!

I totally love this recipe! It has so many of my favourite things all in one deliciously addictive cookie. Peanut butter – tick. Chocolate chips – tick. Crunchy on the outside – tick. Soft and chewy on the inside – tick. But could there possible be anything better than Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies? Yep there is! Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies that have been rolled in raw sugar before baking = a crazy awesome cookie experience. Yep I’m pretty passionate about my cookies.

So if you want to be all natural and a little bit healthier (mind you, considering you’re making peanut butter & chocolate chip cookies let’s not get too serious here!), you can always make your own peanut butter. If you have a Thermomix it’s super quick and easy. Just pop in a bag of peanuts, turn up to Speed 9 and leave for a minute or two (scraping down the sides occasionally). I am HUGELY in love with homemade peanut butter and don’t even get me started on how much I am obsessed with peanut butter and banana on toast. Anyway! If you can’t make your own peanut butter, DO NOT STRESS AT ALL. The supermarket stuff will work perfectly fine… I promise! And seriously, nothing about cookie making should be stressful!

So once you’ve whipped up your Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies mixture (and eaten at least a dozen chocolate chips), you simply need to roll the dough into tablespoon sized balls. If you find the mixture is a bit soft, pop it in the fridge for 15 minutes and then it will be much easier to roll. Coat your cookie dough balls in raw sugar and place onto your prepared baking trays. Don’t worry about pressing the balls down, they will spread when baking anyway.

Cook for 15 minutes or until lightly golden. The Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies will be crunchy on the outside (and OMG that sugar crunch is insanely good) and yet so beautiful soft on the inside. Leave them on the baking trays for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. However, you really must, MUST eat at least one cookie while they’re still warm and the chocolate is gooey. That’s a definite must. There’s no negotiating here.
