Eats: Peanut Butter & Choc Chip cookies...

Teacups_and_Buttondrops_Peanut_Butter_Choc_Chip_Cookies


The other week I was looking for new ideas for work to satisfy my 3pm tea break sweet craving and I came across this recipe for Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip cookies. As someone, who is a massive fan of both, what's not to love?

You will need:

1 cup Peanut Butter (I used smooth)
2/3 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla essence
2 eggs
2/3 cup Oats
1 tsp Baking Powder
2/3 cup Chocolate chips

Method:

001) Preheat oven to 180c.
002) Mix both the Oats and the Baking Powder into one bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the Peanut Butter, Brown Sugar, Eggs and Vanilla until smooth. I used an electric mixer for this to save a little time (and more than likely to satisfy my lazy side...)
003) Mix the bowl with the Oats and the Baking Powder into the Peanut Butter mixture bowl. Fold in the Chocolate Chips (I actually used Cacao nibs as I had some in the cupboard)
004) Roll the mixture into balls, place on the baking tray and flatten a little on the top.
005) Bake for around 15 minutes (until golden brown) and then place on a cooling rack.
006) Enjoy!
