Chunky Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last Sunday, Z and I were planning on heading up north to go snowboarding - for my final trip of the season. Of course, we planned out our lunch before anything else, so Z got to work on another batch of tofu "chicken" salad (recipe to come), while I made dessert: Chunky Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I used this recipe for peanut butter cookies, but substituted creamy peanut butter for chunky (Teddie Natural Super Chunky Peanut Butter, to be exact), whole wheat flour for white, and added 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I also didn't refrigerate the dough before baking it. 

These were absolutely scrumptious, if I do so say myself. The crunchy peanut butter added a great texture and stronger peanut flavor, without making the cookies themselves teeth-shattering-crispy. And the combination of chocolate and peanut butter is one of my favorite flavor combos, so that worked out well, too.

What desserts have you made recently?

  1. I haven't made desserts in quite awhile...I think the last thing I made were peanut butter banana muffins!

  2. These look Delicious! I recently baked a sponge cake which turned out amazing

  3. I just made some cookie dough cupcakes last night! I have to try very hard to keep myself from making dessert every night!

  4. Surprisingly I have not baked any desserts lately! I am making some cupcakes this weekend, and most prob it'll have peanut butter and chocolate :)
