  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 9 ounces weight
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened (4 ounces weight)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened peanut butter 5 ounces weight
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 3 1/2 ounces weight
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar 6 ounces weight
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate cut into chunks
  • 3 ounces white chocolate cut into chunks
  • 2/3 cup lightly salted roasted peanuts


  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together the butter, peanut butter and both sugars until creamy. Beat in the vanilla and the eggs.
  • Add flour mixture and stir to make a soft dough. Stir in the dark and white chunks, then stir in the peanuts.
  • Divide dough into 20 balls and arrange on a parchment or foil lined plate. Chill for an hour, then bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until cookies appear set. Let cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then carefully remove and let cool completely


I chilled my dough rounds for an hour because I think the cookies bake up a little thicker this way, but if you're in a hurry you could probably skip the chilling.
