There comes a time in every cook’s life… oh who am I kidding, there comes a time in mostly everyone’s life where you want a cookie and you aren’t willing to put forth the minimal effort of making fully fledged chocolate chip cookies. This is me most of the time. On the plus side, there’s an easy fix: peanut butter (if you don’t have a peanut allergy, that is). Below is a quick fix recipe to make quick and easy peanut butter-based chocolate chip cookies for a night alone (a.k.a. best nights in).
- 1/2 cup of peanut butter
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1-2tsp baking soda
- chocolate for your topping
- pinch of sea salt 🙂
Mix your peanut butter, brown sugar, baking soda and egg together – pop on some chocolate on top. If you’re looking for a cookie with more substance, add small amounts of flour.
Preheat the oven to 175C/350F and bake for 10-15 minutes
