Category Archives: Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies



There are many, MANY recipes out there for PB/chocolate chip cookies, even quite a few for gluten free ones!  However, none compares to this easy recipe that we can adapt to what we have on hand.

We hand-mix together the following:

1 cup peanut butter (both chunky and creamy work great!!)

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

Then stir in 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips*

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix ingredients.  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a baking sheet.  Grease it a little, not a lot or they will run.  If you don’t grease it at all, they will stick.  They burn easily, so watch carefully.  You want to take them out a little bit before they look done, because they will need to cool on the sheet a little, which holds the heat and keeps on baking them.  It is usually around 8 minutes with my oven.

*NOTE:  We rarely use chocolate chips.  You can get a ton of free chocolate by watching drugstore sales and using coupons, especially around the holidays.  Hershey’s drops, M&M’s, really even Special Dark candy bars chopped up, will work just fine.  Whereas chocolate chips rarely if ever go on sale.  Get creative!
