Flourless Peanut-Chocolate Cookies

 Some friends believe that chocolate and peanuts are a perfect pair for cookies. They always give Snickers as an example with its unique taste and feeling of peanuts and chocolate. However, I am not a fan of either peanuts or Snickers. Anyways, I decided to see whether I like the pairing of those two in cookies and I used Martha Stewart's recipe of flourless peanut-chocolate cookies which was super easy to follow. The cookies came out pretty delicious, but even their great smell,  inspirational look and taste couldn't make me change my mind about them. I am not a fan of either peanuts or Snickers.


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg (lightly beaten)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup roasted salted peanuts



1. Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit F)/176 Celsius (ºC)
2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, stir together peanut butter, sugar, egg, baking soda, and salt until well combined. stir in chocolate chunks and peanuts.
3.With moistened hands, roll dough, about 1 heaping tablespoon at a time, into balls. place 2 inches apart on two baking sheets lined with baking paper.  
4. Bake until cookies are golden and puffed, 12 to 14 minutes, rotating sheets from top to bottom and front to back halfway through. 
5. Cool 5 minutes on sheets, transfer cookies to racks to cool completely.
