Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies or Bars
Many peanut butter cookies call for a Hershey’s kiss on top of the cookie. My recipe mixes chocolate chips into the dough. You can use dark, semi-sweet or even milk chocolate chips. Using the wheat flour gives them a great flavor and makes them a little healthier. you can also make them as cookie bars. *See bar instructions after cookie instructions.
2 cups whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ cup peanut butter
1 sticks (½ cup) unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
¾ cup Brown sugar
¾ cup White sugar
1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips (dark or semi-sweet)
1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degree f.
2. In a mixing bowl mix wheat flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
3. In a standing mixer whip together peanut butter and butter until fluffy.
4. Add white and brown sugar. Mix.
5. Add eggs one at a time. Mix.
6. Add vanilla.
7. Add flour mixture in thirds until all ingredients are well incorporated.
8. Fold in chocolate chips.
9. Using a spoon, scoop out a tablespoon of dough and roll into ball and press down with a fork on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. You get about a dozen on a sheet.
10. Bake for 10 minutes.
11. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for 3-5 minutes.
*12. If you want to make cookie bars, press the cookie dough into a 13x10 greased baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before cutting into bars.
