The Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

peanut butter cookie

So we have a bit of a theme going this week on the blog.

Monday we had peanut butter pancakes.

Tuesday we had chocolate chip cookie dip.

So take the best part of those two recipes – the peanut butter and the chocolate chips and you have today’s recipe!

The Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.

We  had an event at our home this weekend that I needed to make some treats for and I was craving peanut butter cookies.  I went to my blog to get the recipe and guess what!!??  It wasn’t there.  I had never posted my peanut butter cookie recipe.  What kind of food blogger doesn’t have a recipe for peanut butter cookies on their blog!!??  Yikes!  I decided I better fix that problem right away so today you are getting my favorite and the BEST peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Of course you could make these without chocolate chips but since I think peanut butter and chocolate is basically a match made in heaven my peanut butter cookie have chocolate chips in them!

When I add chocolate chips into the dough I don’t roll the balls of dough in sugar like I do if I’m not using chocolate chips.  I just form them into nice little balls and place them on the cookie sheet.

And then I like to smoosh them down a bit with my hand so they spread out a bit more when they are baking. It’s totally a personal preference.


If you like a soft peanut butter cookie be sure and NOT overbake them.  They will be just slightly golden brown and probably look like they need another minute or two to bake.

The next step is grab a nice cold glass of milk and a couple of cookies, maybe more than a couple because these babies are good!  On a cookie scale of 1- 5 – they are a 5!!  That means you can eat five of them with no worries!!

    I cannot wait to try these! They look so good! One note though…you forgot to mention chocolate chips in your list of ingredients (although by the title, that should be self-explanatory, I guess!). Your Best Ever Banana Bread is a family favorite around here…I’m sure these will be right up there!

    Made these last night. They were awesome! I left out the chocolate chips since I had just made choc. chip cookies earlier in the week. Well actually… I measured out the chips, then munched most of them while I was rolling the dough in sugar! Yum. Thank you for another awesome recipe.

    Made these for choir practice today. A double batch. They all vanished in about 5 minutes. I love ‘em with super chunk peanut butter rather than creamy.

    This is the first time I comment on a recipe. So you can imagine how SCRUMPTIOUS these cookies were. One word: YUM!!!!! And I added chocolate bar chunks, chocolate chips, AND rolled cookies in sugar. Triple yum! Also, for anyone interested in a dairy-free version, I used margarine and soy milk and the cookies turned out GREAT. Thank you so much!

    I made these with a tablespoon scoop and got exactly 4 dozen. I’m at high altitude so I added 1/4 cup of flour and reduced the sugar by a few tablespoons as well and they turned out great!

    I have made these twice within the past week at the request of my family. They are so good! We used chocolate chunks instead of chips. For some reason I don’t think I had ever heard of a peanut butter cookie with chocolate chips/chunks. One of the best kept secrets I’ve ever baked! Thanks!

    When I made these, i rolled out 24 as I didn’t read the comments first. At 11 minutes I took them out as I did not want to overbake. They looked underdone like you said they would, but after letting them cool I realized I didn’t cook them long enough. They were doughy and fell apart. Consider adding the quantity to your recipe directions, because smaller cookies would have been baked perfectly at 11 minutes.
