These cookies combine two of my favourite things, chunky peanut butter and milk chocolate. They are soft in the middle and full of flavour, you will definitely not be able to eat just one!
I have been trying to make these cookies work for so long! I know they look super simple, but for some reason they were never perfect for me. I kept trying to make them work with dark chocolate which overpowered all the other flavours, turns out milk chocolate was the solution.
I added crunchy peanut butter to give that crunch and also to add the saltiness that the biscuits need, so there is not need for extra salt. They are so addictive and I can honestly say that you will not be able to eat just one!
This is how I made it
All you need to make these cookies is: sugar, brown sugar, honey, oats, milk chocolate, crunchy peanut butter, butter, vanilla extract, egg, flour and baking soda.
- The first thing is to beat together the butter, the sugar and the honey.
- Then, add in the egg and the vanilla and the peanut butter and mix again.
- Once it’s all mixed, add the flour and the baking soda, when it’s all incorporated, fold in the oats and the chocolate. Refrigerate the mix for about 30 minutes and then transfer to a baking tray using an ice cream scoop. I pressed my cookies down ever so slightly with a spatula and cooked them in a preheated oven for around 20 minutes, until they start getting golden on top.
- When you take them out of the oven, let them cool down on the tray for 5 minutes and then transfer them to an airing rack.
… and enjoy!
