  • ½ cup butter melted
  • ¾ cup peanut butter smooth
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour or a gluten free 1-to-1 blend
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips semi-sweet


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add melted butter to a large bowl along with the peanut butter, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium speed with a handheld mixer for 20-30 seconds, or until combined.
  3. Add 1 cup of flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to the bowl. Whisk just the dry ingredients with a fork or whisk so they’re evenly distributed. Beat everything together on medium speed until the flour is incorporated into the wet ingredients. Add in the rest of the flour ¼ cup at a time until it is well combined.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips by hand and scoop out 1 ½ tablespoons worth of dough using a cookie dough scoop. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet at least 2 inches apart. Repeat this with the remaining dough.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 11-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned.
  6. Let cool completely before serving or packaging up. Enjoy!
