Dark Chocolate Dream Cookies

I don’t know what happened this week, but I have not been eating well. Ok, I should also include last week in that statement, but hey, you get to eat a little bad on your birthday, right?!! Unless I want to try and argue that this is my birthday month, then there is no excuse for making these cookies. I just thought it sounded like a great idea! As I was perusing the peanut butter and cereal aisle last month, I spotted this:

I’ve professed my love for chocolate and peanut butter many times already on this blog so I probably don’t need to do it again. Upon seeing this, I HAD to have it!! This peanut butter is pretty good, almost like Nutella, but with regular peanuts and not as much of a chocolate taste. I like making peanut butter cookies, so I decided this chocolately peanut butter would be GREAT in a cookie. And I was right! They didn’t come out as pretty as I had hoped they would, but Husband said he wants me to make these more often! I used my best ever chocolate chip cookie recipe as a base for these!

By the way, I’m so excited that I am going to be having my first GIVEAWAY tomorrow! I hope you will all come back so you can enter to win!!!

Dark Chocolate Dream Cookies

Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies

Ingredients:

– 3 cups oat flour (or 2 1/4 cup white flour)

– 1 tsp. baking soda

– 1 cup Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter

– 1 cup packed brown sugar

– 2 tsp. vanilla extract

– 2 sticks of butter at room temperature

– 2 eggs at room temperature

– 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Combine oat flour and baking soda in a bowl. Set aside.

2. In a separate bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, and peanut butter together. Add eggs and vanilla extract. Slowly add in flour until all of it is well-combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough for approximately 10 minutes (of put in the freezer for about 5 mins.) (This will make your cookies come out a little thicker and chewier so if you don’t like that, then skip that step!).

3. Drop spoonfuls of chilled batter onto the baking sheet (I like to use an ice cream scoop to do this!). Make sure each cookie is about 2 inches apart. Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes. Cool on cooling rack.

Notes:
– I was not asked, nor did I receive any compensation from the Peanut Butter & Co. for this post. I just really like their peanut butter!
– Can’t find this peanut butter in your store? No problem! Use regular peanut butter and add a couple of tablespoons of cocoa powder!

  1. I have to admit, I don’t really like chocolate and peanut butter together. However, I used to see this peanut butter on the shelves often in the States and I’ve probably picked it up and put it back about a dozen times. My husband and kids, on the other hand love chocolate and peanut butter (well they would eat anything with chocolate) so I’m sure they would go crazy over these. And I do think that they look nice, the way a cookie is supposed to look!

  2. I’ve had that peanutbutter! Its pretty darn good :) Great idea to make it into a cookie, sounds delightful!

  16. I have had some of that spread before. Super good right? Adding it to cookies is a brilliant idea. Yum!

  17. Hi Stephanie! I have to say the cookies look great and peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite flavor combo of all time (I think that might be our problem). I have to constantly steer myself away from junk. Sometimes I’m successful, sometimes I’m not…..I understand!

    However, if those cookies were in my house – they wouldn’t last very long! :o)

  18. Eeks.. dark chocolate dream cookie? Can you see me dreaming now Stephanie? I so am right now.. and I must be in foodland cause I almost could taste or smell the chocolate.

  20. I loooooooove Peanut Butter & Co products. The White Chocolate Wonderful is my personal kryptonite (I swear, I eat the stuff right out of the jar with a spoon!).
    I haven’t gotten around to trying the Dark Chocolate Dreams yet, but it does sound positively dreamy…. and so do these cookies, for that matter. Love that you’ve added chocolate chips to the mix for extra chocolatey goodness. :)
