We can't get enough cookies around our house lately since we've been safe at home for the last 6 weeks!

Between my teen daughter requesting a batch at least once a week, to my pregnancy cravings kicking into full gear, we've been eating and trying tons of old and new recipes.

Today's cookie recipe is perfect! After trying the recipe a few different times, we've perfected it to exactly how we love our peanut butter cookies.

We go light on the chocolate chips, because we love just a taste and not tons of chocolate in each bite. This makes these cookies soft, chewy and a little nutty from the chunky peanut butter.

If you LOVE chocolate chips, feel free to double the amount, or even use the regular sized chocolate chips! If chunky peanut butter isn't your thing, you can use the smooth stuff as well.

This recipe is super to change up and customize and I guarantee the kids and the rest of the family will absolutely love them too!

These cookies are great for the lunch box, snack time, dessert or just because!

What is in Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies?

  • Vanilla extract: this extract is made from vanilla bean pods soaked in water and alcohol. Try using pure vanilla extract instead of imitation. This is the most common extract used in American desserts and I put it in pretty much anything sweet, Use store bought or make your own here!
  • Butter: A dairy product consisting of approximately 80% butterfat and made from the fat and protein components of milk or cream. Most commonly made from cow's milk, but can also be made from sheep, goat, yak, or buffalo milk.
  • All purpose flour: It's a combination of hard and soft wheats. Bleached flour provides a softer texture. It's versatile and you can bake most anything with it!
  • Peanut Butter: Peanut butter is a paste or spread made from ground, dry roasted peanuts. It's relatively low carb food and contains good amounts of fats and protein, as well as some fiber. The two main kinds of peanut butter are crunchy or chunky and smooth or creamy. In crunchy peanut butter, some coarsely-ground peanut fragments are included to give extra texture. Buy store bought or make your own here!
