Chewy Peanut and Almond Butter Cookies

Chewy Peanut and Almond butter cookies

These cookies came about because I had some almond butter I wanted to use up and was running low on peanut butter.

I love the flavor of the cookies and the texture just chewy goodness. This was one of my new recipes for this year’s holiday baking line-up and it will definitely be making its rounds through-out the year.

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup almond butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 -1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Sugar sprinkles to decorate (optional)

Directions:

  2. Beat together butter and peanut butter and almond butter until well combined.
  3. Add sugars and beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.
  4. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and mix just until blended.
  5. With a cookie scoop, scoop out balls of dough and place on a silpat lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the sugar sprinkles if desired.

  1. Wow! I’ve never thought of making cookies using both PB and AB. I am so jealous of your photography skills and recipe-creating abilities 🙂 This looks absolutely divine and something that I could devour in minutes. Almond butter is definitely one of my top three favourite foods, and I can’t go a day without it. This recipe looks like something that will help me make that quota, haha! I’m so glad I discovered your blog and will definitely be back for more delicious recipes and awesome photos. Hope to see more nut-butter goodness! Happy Friday 🙂
