Double Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cookies

Tuesday, October 30, 2018

Autumn is the time of year for warming, hearty, comfort foods and, when it comes to comfort foods, thick, gooey double chocolate and peanut butter cookies are king! The perfect combination, of rich chocolate and creamy peanut butter, these cookies are comfort personified. Whether you're in need of a party snack, a birthday treat or just some home-baked goods to whip up and enjoy on a rainy Sunday, these sweet and chunky cookies are the perfect choice. As is the case with all of my sweet recipes, these cookies go perfectly with a hot cup of tea and, when eaten still warm from the oven, these chocolatey bites of heaven are the perfect way to get cosy on a chilly autumn day.

You will need:
- 175g dairy free butter
- 175g light brown sugar
- 1 flax egg {1 tablespoon flax & 3 tablespoons water)
- 275g plain flour
- 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
-  25g chopped peanuts
- 100g chocolate chunks

Start by preheating your oven to 180 degrees celsius and lining a baking tray with grease proof paper.

Next combine your butter and sugar in a bowl, stirring well until light and creamy. Once combined, add your flax egg and peanut butter to the mixture and stir well.

On a chopping board, roughly chop your chocolate bar and peanuts into chunks, then add to the butter and sugar mixture.

Now, add your flour, cocoa powder and bicarbonate of soda to the mixture and stir well to form a loose dough.

Spoon your mixture on to the baking sheet, making 12 equal cookies - make sure to leave plenty of room between each cookie as they'll spread as they bake!

Now place your cookies in the oven to bake for around 10 minutes, the cookies should still be soft when they come out of the oven and you'll need to let them cool for around 10 minutes before digging in!

Now grab a cuppa, and settle down with a cookie (or two) in front of a good movie!
