Peanut Butter Chocolate Raisin Cookies

This is the easiest and yummiest cookie recipe you will ever make. Trust me.

In its purest form, this cookie recipe consists of only peanut butter, sugar and an egg. My add-ins came at the suggestion of my best friend Jen, though you can include whatever you want. When I make these again, I’ll use egg replacer so they’ll be vegan – the sugar and peanut butter do most of the binding anyway.

Simple to prepare and simply delicious. That is all.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Raisin Cookies

1 cup plain or chunky peanut butter (I used chunky)
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 egg
Splash of vanilla
½ cup raisins
½ cup dairy-free chocolate chips

Mix peanut butter and sugars together until creamy. Add in the egg and vanilla, followed by the chocolate chips and raisins.

Drop by the heaping tablespoon onto a prepared cookie sheet. You’ll want to flatten these a bit. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cookies appear dry on top.

Devour with abandon!

    What kind of peanut butter did you use? I tried to use some of the trader joe’s organic peanut butter and my cookies just fell apart. They were still really good, you just couldn’t pick them up like actual cookies without having them crumble

      I used Maranatha’s no-stir chunky peanut butter. I’m not sure how it compares to Trader Joe’s peanut butter, as unfortunately we don’t have TJ’s here in Canada! :(
