Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ok, I know it hasn’t been long since I shared my recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars. However, considering the popularity of the CCC, not to mention it’s immense potential for diversity, I figured (hoped) that you’d forgive my repetitiveness… The truth is, beyond containing chocolate chips, these two cookies share little in common. The bars were thick and soft, with a slight chew. On the other hand, these cookies are much thinner and crisper, featuring a nice peanut butter flavour and a hint of banana.

So is there room in your recipe book for more than one CCC or are you a loyal, one CCC kind of person? And more importantly, have you found your ideal CCC or are you still searching for love at first bite?… I doubt I’ll ever settle down with just one, there’s just too much delicious fun in the search 🙂


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup Margarine

1/2 cup Brown Sugar

1/2 cup Sugar

1/4 cup Pureed Banana

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar

1/2 cup Smooth Peanut Butter (I used Natural)

1 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour

1 tsp Baking Soda

2/3 cup Chocolate Chips


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Stir together the flour and baking soda. Set aside.

Beat margarine until soft and smooth. Add sugars and beat on medium, until light and fluffy. Beat in the pureed banana, vanilla and vinegar. Add the peanut butter and beat until thoroughly combined. Stir in the flour mixture, then the chocolate chips.

Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough and roll into balls. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and press to about 1/4 inch thickness (the cookies grow a lot, so keep at least 2 inches apart).

Bake for 12 – 14 minutes.

Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to wire rack.

Makes approximately 20 cookies.

    There is nothing to forgive Starr! 🙂
    These look amazing. Oh why oh why did I scoff on 3/4 a pack of choc chips last night?! (It was a small pack 🙂 ). I could have made these tonight. Damn.

        Oh that could be dangerous! 🙂
        I’m probably lucky that we don’t have vegan choc chips available in bulk in a local store. I have to order them online if I want them. So, no impulse buying. The biggest bag available is 150g. (5 oz). It gets expensive to buy them that way though.

    I have a go-to CCC recipe, but I have love affairs with other ones as well 🙂 Way to hit me with these delicious-looking devils at the exact moment that I’m having a cookie craving…

    These cookies look so good but I don’t like Pb, maybe because I am a belgian? I will use almond butter in here instead, I think!
