Double chocolate peanut butter cookies

Do you love a cookie that’s crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside? Do you also love chocolate AND peanut butter? Well, ladies and gents, this recipe is for you!


  • 200g plain flour
  • 20g cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 45g caster sugar
  • 100g light brown soft sugar
  • 100ml maple syrup
  • 65g coconut oil
  • 75g peanut butter
  • 40ml milk/water
  • 100g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 30g peanuts, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 celcius and line a baking tray with baking paper
  2. Sift the flour, cocoa powder and bicarbonate of soda onto a large bowl, then add the salt and sugars and mix well
  3. In a separate bowl, melt the coconut oil then stir in the peanut butter, maple syrup and milk
  4. Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and stir until a dough forms. Sprinkle in the chocolate and peanuts
  5. Using your hand, divide the mixture into 9 balls and place on a baking tray, patting down slightly and leaving a few inches between each ball (I had to use 2 trays but if you only have one, cook in 2 batches)
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes then remove and allow to cool
  7. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes and enjoy!
