Chocolate and peanut butter oat cookies

Peanut butter and chocolate oat cookies

I had a few different stories to tell about this cookie recipe.

About how perfectly the flavours of peanut butter and chocolate go together.  The fact that the last batch I made of these barely lasted a day in our house.  How the flavour combination reminds me of the episode of Angel where he becomes mortal for a day and tastes peanut butter and chocolate together for the first time.

But you’re not really here for that are you!

If you’re reading this it’s probably because you’re looking for a recipe for simple, tasty, soft and chewy peanut butter and chocolate oat cookies, so here you go:

 

Ingredients

  • 100g peanut butter
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 100g oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50g chocolate (chopped up into chunks)

 

What you need to do

1. Preheat the oven to 180 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

2. Mix together the peanut butter, sugar and egg in a bowl.

3. Mix in the oats, baking powder and chocolate chunks.

4. Spoon out balls of the mixture about 3cm in diameter.  Place on the baking tray and press them down ever so slightly.  The cookies will spread as they bake, so space them out quite well.  You might need to bake these in batches.

5. Bake for 10 minutes for lovely soft chewy biscuits.

6. The cookies might not look quite done when you take them out of the oven, but leave them on the baking tray and they’ll firm up really nicely.

7. After about 10 minutes move the biscuits off the baking tray and onto a plate or cooling rack.

 

These cookies are so good, they really don’t last long at all in my house.

If you’re looking for a bit of a variation on the recipe though, pop over and take a look at my oaty biscoff cookies which are also rather tasty!
