Peanut Butter Cookies

This isn’t actually the recipe I always make for peanut butter cookies, but it came out delicious and definitely deserved a spot on the blog. Below is the recipe which makes around 30 cookies:


  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar (or xylitol for a healthier option)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla essence
  • 1 & 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees c.
  2. Mix the butter, peanut butter and sugar into a creamy mixture.
  3. Add the egg & vanilla essence and mix.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt. Once mixed, add to the peanut butter mixture and mix well.

5. On a greased baking tray, roll balls with the mixture and press down with a fork.

Tip – the mixture does tend to crumble – when rolling the balls, press all ingredients together again.

6. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Allow to cool.
