Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


It's time for cookies! I made these for a family cookout and they turned out great. I usually go for plain chocolate chip cookies, but the peanut butter added a little extra something to these that I loved!

 







Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
adapted from pennies on a platter
makes 2 – 3 dozen cookies


1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup vegan butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 flax egg (1 Tbsp flax + 3 Tbsp water)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tbsp almond milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350˚F.  
In a large bowl, use an electronic mixer to cream together the butter, sugars and peanut butter. Stir in the flax egg, vanilla and milk. 
In another bowl sift together the flour, salt and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix. Carefully stir in the chocolate chips.
Form small balls of dough and place on baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

 
 

 



I wish I had one of these to eat right now, but they are all long gone!

What type of cookies are your go-to crowd pleasers?


Thanks for visiting!

  3. Holy Balls! This is exactly what I've been wanting. Could you describe flax egg a little further? Do you mean flax oil or seed? Thanks!

    1. You make it with ground flax seeds. I followed the advice found here and let it set in the fridge, too. I will add this to the post, thanks!
