Thick and chewy peanut butter cookies loaded with chunks of chocolate.

  • 210 grams (1 and 1/2 cup) plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  1. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until creamy and combined. Add egg and vanilla. Add the peanut butter and mix until combined.
  3. Sift in the flour and baking soda gently mix until a soft dough forms. Stir in the chocolate chunks.
