Chewy brownie peanut butter chip cookies…..wow that’s a mouthful! What’s not to love about a brownie like cookie? I subbed half of the all purpose flour with whole wheat, and they turned out great. Next time I make them, I may get brave and just use all whole wheat flour. I happened to have all the ingredients on hand, so I whipped these up this afternoon. I’m sure glad I did, they were delicious!
Chewy Brownie Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
Source: Baking Bites
2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups combo of chocolate chips and peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. With the mixer on low, beat in the flour mixture, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary, and continue to beat until all of the dry mix has been incorporated. Do this slowly to avoid dusting your kitchen with flour and cocoa. Stir in chips and/or peanut butter cups by hand.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheet (dough balls were a bit larger than 1 inch in diameter). Leave about 2 to 3-inches between cookies to allow for spread.
Bake for 9-11 minutes, until cookies are set at the edges and tops are slightly cracked looking. Cool on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes, until firm enough to transfer to a cooling rack.
