Definitely off diet. No matter what diet you’re on. But WORTH IT!


• 1 1/2 cups extra chunky #peanut #butter

• 1 cup unsalted #butter at room temp

• 1 cup brown sugar

• 1 cup granulated sugar

• 2 #eggs

• 1 tsp #vanilla extract

• 2 cups all-purpose flour

• 1 1/2 tsp baking soda

• 1/2 tsp salt

• 1 cup #chocolate #chips (don’t skimp here!)

• 1/2 cup #peanuts (salted if you have them but peanuts are also optional)


1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2 With a mixer, beat together peanut butter, softened butter and sugars until creamy and well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla and beat until creamy.

3 Add flour, baking soda and salt to mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips and peanuts (if you’re using them)

4 Scoop cookies onto a cookie sheet. Up to you on how big you want them but they’re fairly rich. The first time I made them I used a 1.5 tbsp scoop and the cookies were a bit too big for my liking and I felt a little guilty… but that’s my issue, not yours. Scoop away! I’m using a 1 tbsp scoop as it relates to the timing below.

5 Bake for approximately 7 to 9 minutes. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool on a wire cooling rack, but remain on baking sheet, for at least five minutes. Remove from baking sheet, serve and enjoy!

6 YIELD: Approximately 60 cookies
