  • 110 grams unsalted butter room temperature
  • 170 grams plain flour
  • 200 grams caster sugar
  • 100 grams chunky peanut butter
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 70 grams milk chocolate chunks can use dark chocolate


  • Pre heat the oven to 170 C/325 F/Gas Mark 3. Cream your 120 grams unsalted butter and 200 grams of sugar together until pale and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and mix again. Scrape the sides of the bowl down. Add the 100 grams of peanut butter and ¼ tsp vanilla. Mix through and do the same with the 170 grams flour, 1 & ½ tsp of bicarb and pinch of salt.
  • Tip in the 70 grams of chocolate chips and mix until dispersed evenly. Roll the cookie dough into 12 balls and put 6 on each baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes and golden around the edges.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the tray before transferring to a wire rack to fully cool.

  • Use any chocolate to suit. I have made these with white or dark chocolate chunks.
  • They will be soft when they first come out of the oven and firm up as they cool.
  • Make sure the cookies are golden all over and slightly darker at the edges
  • Freeze them as uncooked balls in a freezer bag and when required cook from frozen adding 2 more mins to the baking time.
  • Store in an air tight tin. The cookies are best eaten in the first couple of days.
