Salted Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies is a mouthful of words and sweet, decadent cookie. They are sweet, a little savory, and full of texture. This cookie recipe calls for natural peanut butter, which gives the cookies a natural peanut taste without tasting artificial. This easy recipe is for all the chocolate peanut butter lovers!



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (example)
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
  • Finishing salt (e.g. Maldon)


Preheat oven to 360°F.  

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter together until smooth. Add vanilla extract and beat in the eggs one at a time. Mix in cocoa powder just until mixed. 

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, and salt.  Slowly stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture without over mixing. Fold in chocolate chips. 

Using a cookie scoop or spoon, form cookie dough balls with 2 tablespoons of dough each and place 3 inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle finishing salt on each cookie dough ball before placing in the oven.

Place in the oven to bake for 12-14 minutes. Allow cookies to cool slightly for 1-2 minutes, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
