With peanut butter, Reese’s peanut butter chips, and salted peanuts, these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfect for peanut butter lovers of all ages!
Did you know that today is National Peanut Butter Cookie Day? Well it is. Which means that all peanut butter cookies consumed today have absolutely no calories. I don’t know about you, but I’m taking advantage of that. Because I love me some peanut butter cookies.
In the past, I have shared my recipes for Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, Magic Middle Cookies, and Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies. Peanut butter and chocolate are pretty much a match made in heaven, dontcha think?
I love the combo so much that I am always trying to come up with new recipes that include chocolate and peanut butter. I tweaked a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe to come up with these.
I’ve added Reese’s peanut butter chips to cookies before, and I love them. I thought I’d add even more peanut flavor by adding some roasted peanuts. I love how they added some crunch, and some unexpected saltiness to balance out the sweet. Hope you try them, they are darn good!
