Ingredients

  • 300 g (1 cup) peanut butter
  • 60 g (⅓ cup) soft light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 30 g (⅓ cup) cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
  • Prepare your baking sheet*.
  • Mix all the ingredients together until well combined.
  • Spoon onto the baking sheet** and flatten with the fork to make criss-cross patterns.
  • Cook in the centre of the pre-heated oven for 9 minutes for a softer cookie, 12 minutes for a more crumbly one.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to rest for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Store in an airtight container for 3-4 days or freeze.

Notes

*I have a really good non-stick baking sheet so put these cookies straight on to that. If your baking sheet is less than perfect either grease it with a little oil, or use a piece of non-stick grease proof paper.
**If my dough is quite stiff I scoop it out with a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon then press it down with the fork. If it is too sticky for this I scoop it out with a dessert spoon, shape it into rounds as best I can then mark it with the fork.
