Recipe Details
  • 2 spray(s) cooking spray
  • 1 cup(s) sugar, granulated
  • 1/4 cup(s) regular butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup(s) chunky peanut butter without salt
  • 2 large egg(s)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup(s) whole-grain wheat flour
  • 1 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Coat 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray or cover with parchment paper.
  2. Place sugar, butter and peanut butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; blend well with mixer.
  3. Add salt, baking soda and flour to sugar mixture; beat until completely incorporated.
  4. Drop batter by heaping teaspoons onto prepared cookie sheets and flatten with the back of a wooden spoon. Make sure to leave about 2 inches between each cookie. (Bake in several batches to prevent over-crowding if necessary.) Place a chocolate chip in center of each cookie.
  5. Bake cookies until edges brown, about 10 to 11 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for 1 or 2 minutes; remove cookies to a wire rack and cool completely. Yields 1 cookie per serving.
