Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies or Bars

Updated on May 3, 2012
Cast your vote for Peanut Butter Cookies

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.

Ingredients:

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

2 eggs

1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract

2 cups chocolate chips (dark or semi-sweet)

Directions:

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.

      Peanut Butter+Cookies= Heaven. I will try this one at home and I will use chunky peanut butter. I love cookies with big chunks of peanuts in every bite :)

      I'm going to try this recipe. Wheat flour sounds healthier than All purpose flour. Thanks for sharing!
