  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour, or use just all purpose
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup smooth or chunky peanut butter, I used natural without any added sugar
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 large or extra large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup chocolate covered peanuts, chopped, I used Goobers
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate


  1. 1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Remember, we only bake one cookie sheet at a time for even baking.

    2.Combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

    3.In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the sugar, melted butter and peanut butter until creamy. Add the vanilla and egg until well combined.

    4.Add the flour mixture and beat until blended.

    5.Stir in the chopped Goobers.

    6.Place batter in fridge for about 5-10 minutes. After you take them out, roll them into small balls making a total of 36 cookies.

    7.Place each ball on the cookie sheet and gently press down with the tines of a fork. If you need to, lightly flour the fork or mist the fork with cooking spray.

    8.Bake about 8-10 minutes; turn the pan around half way through, again for even baking. They should look light brown. Do not over bake.

    9.When you take them out of the oven, place cookies on a cooling rack for about 5 minutes and then slide the parchment paper off the cookie sheet to cool on the rack.
