4 Crazy Delicious Takes on the Classic Peanut Butter Cookie
From super-crunch to salty-sweet, these creative cookies will become new household favorites.
One-Bowl Peanut Butter Cookies
We used the entire jar of peanut butter in these easy, 5-ingredient cookies, meaning they’re packed with peanut butter flavor and you skip the mess of measuring sticky peanut butter. Simply spoon the entire jar into a bowl, stir in the remaining ingredients, roll into balls, and bake until golden. You’ll never want (or need) to do it any other way.

Super-Crunch Peanut Butter Cookies
If you crave even more peanut flavor than the classic cookie provides, try stirring chopped salted peanuts into the dough. The result is a cookie with extra salt and crunch—perfect for true peanut fanatics.
Sea-Salt Espresso Peanut Butter Cookies
To create these extra-special peanut butter cookies, we began by stirring espresso powder and flaky sea salt into the dough. But we knew we could take it one step further, so we rolled the dough balls in a mixture of sugar, instant espresso, and flaky salt. The result is a shimmering cookie filled with bold espresso flavor.
Oatmeal-Cinnamon-Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter Cookie
If you’ve ever had cinnamon peanut butter, you know the combination is downright addictive. We upped the ante by folding in oats and raisins, creating a kitchen-sink style cookie with a peanut butter base.
Pretzel-Chocolate Chunk Peanut Butter Cookies
Why add one type of chocolate when you could add two? We stirred in both milk and semi-sweet chocolate chunks for the ultimate salty-sweet peanut butter cookie (there’s pretzels in there, too). If you can, buy bars of chocolate and chop them yourself—you’ll get a variety of sizes (including deliciously thin shards), making for more interesting cookies.
