This recipe is quick and easy and VERY delicious – combining my two absolute favourite things, chocolate and peanut butter. Whoever first thought to mix these two together is a genius! The sugary sweetness of the chocolate and the salty goodness of the peanut butter work perfectly together, especially in a cookie!


- 120g butter, chopped and slightly softened
- ⅓ cup caster sugar
- ⅓ cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large egg, at room temperature
- 1¾ cup self raising flour
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 100g crunchy peanut butter


1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C and line an oven tray with non-stick baking paper.

2. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugars for a few minutes, until pale and creamy.

3. Next, beat in the vanilla and egg until completely combined.

4. Sift the flour into the mixture and mix with a spoon to form a thick cookie dough, then stir in the chocolate chips.

5. Lastly, microwave the peanut butter for 30 seconds, then fold it into the cookie dough – you’re aiming more for peanut butter swirls than blending it into the dough completely.

6. Roll tablespoon pieces of dough into balls and flatten them a little, placing them on the tray spaced out a little.

7. Bake them for 12-15min, until they’re just golden. Let them cool on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Enjoy it!
