Description

Crunchy on the outside. All soft, chewy, peanut butter-chocolately goodness, on the inside. These 4 step, super quick and easy, Choc Chunk Peanut Butter Cookies, make low sugar,  next level YUM!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup natural crunchy peanut butter (smooth would work too)
  • ¼ cup corn flour (plus extra), regular or gluten free depending on your dietary requirements
  • ¼ cup rice malt syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 50g dark chocolate, regular or dairy free, 85% cacao or above depending on your dietary requirements.

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 160C (fan forced) and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Chop dark chocolate into small pieces and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Next add the peanut butter, egg, corn flour, rice malt syrup and vanilla essence. Mix all the ingredients until they are fully combined and form a dough.
  3. With damp hands take a teaspoon of dough, roll it into a ball and place it on the baking tray. Use your fingers to flatten the dough into a cookie shape. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
  4. Transfer the cookies to the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes until they just start to go golden on the edges. Remove from the oven, leave to cool for 5 minutes and enjoy!

Notes

  • If the peanut butter you use is extra oily, you might find that the dough is too sticky to roll into balls even with damp hands. Just add some extra cornflour one tablespoon at a time, to get the right consistency.
  • The tops of the cookies will be soft when you remove them from the oven. That’s totally okay, they will firm up as they cool.
  • I wouldn’t count on it, but if you have any cookies left over, store them in an air tight container, for 5-7 days.
  • You can easily make your chocolate chip blondies totally refined sugar free, by using a sugar free dark chocolate, like Lindt No Added Sugar Dark Chocolateor Loving Earth Chocolate for a dairy free option.
  • If you suffer food intolerances or allergies, please make sure all the ingredients are safe for you to eat. I used White Wings corn flour and Pure Harvest rice malt syrup, which say they are gluten free on the packaging.
