Flourless chocolate chip & peanut butter cookies

There are only a few posts on this blog and yet there's no way to hide my love for peanut butter. I make it every month just to be sure I always have a jar on hand. You never know when you will be in need ; )

These cookies are amazing. Just like almost every sweet thing created by Nigella, it takes only a couple minutes to make and still they surprise you with great, original flavors. When the cookies are hot, they can be a little bit crumbly but they tend to soften when left in a container for a day or two. 

Ingredients for about 16 cookies:
*recipe adapted from Nigella Lawson's new cookbook "Simply Nigella"

- 230g smooth peanut butter (preferably homemade or as natural as possible)
- 100g light brown sugar
- 1 free-range egg
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- vanilla
- pinch of salt
- 50g good quality dark chocolate, chopped

Preheat the oven to 180C/356F.

In a large bowl, beat the peanut butter with sugar, baking soda and salt. Stir in the egg and vanilla.

Combine chopped chocolate with the cookie batter, take a large spoon and start placing a walnut-size balls on a lined baking tray.

Press lightly with your hand and then bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges turn golden.
