Thursday Treats/ Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter and Chocolate. Is there a better combination? These cookies I baked today certainly make it hard to think there could be.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanuts
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup Baking Cocoa
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large Free Range eggs
1 cup choc chips
1 tsp salt
Sea salt for sprinkling

What to do:
Preheat oven to 200 C

1. Combine flour, salt, cocoa and baking powder in a mixing bowl
2. In a separate bowl, beat butter and sugar
3. Add eggs, vanilla and peanut butter and mix well
4. Combine with dry mixture
5. Add chocolate chips and peanuts and mix until just combined
6. Spoon mixture onto well greased baking tray, sprinkle with a little sea salt and bake for 15 minutes 

The mixture for these cookies is so light and fluffy it was a struggle not to eat the whole lot straight from the mixing bowl!!
Best enjoyed in the sunshine with a cup of Chai tea.
