I think the name says it all. The pictures are the proof. I should just give you the recipe and let you get on with it.
But I can't. These are so easy and so good and I need to tell you all about it!
You will make them once and you will know the recipe by heart. You can make them in the middle of the night, no need to remember complicated measurements. They are the easiest cookies I have ever made!
Keep this recipe for those moments when the craving for peanut butter chocolate combo strikes!
The dough is very sticky and thick so I let my oldest daughter to place the chocolate chips on top of each cookie, instead of mixing them in. The addition of cocoa powder adds another chocolatey level to this treat, without being overwhelming or taking the spot from the peanut butter.
I used my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe, originally from Joy the Baker.
Did I say these are thick and chewy?
I suggest you make these. 🙂

These are very good, but crumbly after refrigerating and after baking. no one seemed to mind. Also, there is no way you could get 24 cookies out of this batch. I got 14 "normal" size cookies. tasty 🙂

OMG! This is everything I could ever want in a cookie! 🙂
What temp do I bake them at?
Oops! It should be 350 degrees F. The recipe is updated now. Thank you, Jess!

Love these! I love flourless PB cookies and when I make them, I usually use half and half white/brown sugar or 3/4 and 1/4. I need to try all brown like this. They look incredible!
I made some with white & brown sugar combination but these beat them all for sure! Best I have ever had! Thanks, Averie!

I'm looking at that cookie close-up photo and it just screams "deliciousness!" and "chewy goodness!" to me! If cookies could talk, it's screaming "eat me, eat me" now. Sigh. I wish I had these with me right now. We're undergoing a kitchen reno, so all cooking and baking are on hold until it's all done. I'm ogling your sweets to satisfy my cravings for now.
See, I knew it's not just me that hears those voices! 😉 I hope your reno is over soon so you can make these. Thank you, Jen! xo

Peanut butter and chocolate...sigh I want some right now. Delicious looking 🙂
Thanks, Gerry 🙂 Now go! Make some!
Anna, I believe you wholeheartedly when you say these are amazing but if I needed any more convincing, that last beauty shot of the cookie's dense, moist innards did it for me. I love peanut butter cookies so this wonderfully simple recipe needs to be made asap!
Yay! You need to try these, Nancy! If you like thick and chewy and PB - you will love these! Thank you!
After my day, I need a big platter of these put in front of my face... Please!!
Right away! 🙂 Thanks, Sues!
I'm all about thick and chewy cookies, especially involving peanut butter!!
Totally! Thank you, Jessica!

Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe says
The thickness! The chewiness! And oh, how simple too. It doesn't get any better than that!
Not in my book 🙂 Thanks, Amanda!
Could it get any simpler? Also passed these along to my GF girlfriend, she's always on the lookout for naturally GF stuff 🙂
Yay! Thank you so much, Laura!
Thats amazing! They look so good, and I can't believe they are flourless, are they GF?
Thanks, Jackie! Yes, they are GF. Cocoa powder is GF and so are the chocolate chips. Enjoy!
