  • ¾ cup smooth peanut butter or crunchy, if you prefer
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup plain flour + 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • ¾ cup + 1 or 2 tablespoons dark chocolate chunks or chocolate of your choice


  • Preheat oven to 180C. Lightly grease two baking trays and line with non-stick baking paper. Combine peanut butter, sugar, flour + baking powder and egg in a bowl. Stir in chocolate chunks (or mix by hand if you find it is too difficult to stir).
  • Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the prepared trays. Press lightly with the palm of your hand. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until light golden. Leave to cool on the trays then immediately enjoy with a glass of cold milk. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
