How to make delicious and chewy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. With a soft centre and melt in your mouth peanut butter flavour!


  • 226g slightly salted room temperature butter

  • 260g smooth peanut butter

  • 135g granulated sugar

  • 200g lightly packed brown sugar

  • 2 tsp (10ml) vanilla extract

  • 2 large eggs

  • 270g plain flour

  • 4g bicarbonate of soda

  • 265g milk chocolate chips


  • In a bowl mix the slightly salted butter until smooth.
  • Add in smooth peanut butter and mix well until fully combined.
  • Combine in both types of sugar and beat until mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Add in the vanilla extract and mix in. Then add in the eggs one at a time. Ensure each wet ingredient is mixed in fully before incorporating the next.
  • Sieve in all of the flour and bicarbonate of soda into the bowl and mix until just combined and resembles a dough mix.
  • Add in the chocolate chips and ensure they are evenly distributed into cookie dough mix.
  • Using a spoon, place 50g size balls onto a baking tray, ensuring they are 2 inches apart
  • Preheat the oven to 177°C
  • Place trays into the fridge and allow to cool for 30 minutes. During this time the oven will reach the correct baking temperature.
  • After 30 minutes, place the chilled cookie dough ball trays into the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the cookies and allow them to rest for 5-10 minutes in order to set.
  • Once set they are ready to enjoy!


  • Using smooth peanut butter holds the cookie better. Any supermarket peanut butter will do. I used Sainsbury’s smooth peanut butter.
  • If you are in a hurry you can reduce the cooling time to 10 minutes, but the cookies will spread a little more. Make sure to put the oven on before you start if this is the case!
  • If you wish, prior to adding in the flour and bicarbonate of soda, whisk them together in a separate bowl.
  • In order to get even size cookie dough balls, use an ice cream scoop to measure them out.
  • You can use a mixture of milk and dark chocolate chips if you prefer the cookies less sweet.
  • On serving, add some rock sea salt on top to add a third dimension of flavour.
