Rustic Peanut Butter Cookies are a chewy, old-fashioned peanut butter cookie recipe. The mini chocolate chips & peanuts really make this recipe.
I’m often hesitant to a share recipe for a food that already has a million recipes out there – like peanut butter cookies.
These Rustic Peanut Butter Cookies are so good that I decided it was worth it to make it one million and one recipes.
The cookies don’t have the traditional cross-hatch design that most peanut butter cookies have. Instead, they’re made like a regular drop cookie.
These cookies also have chopped peanuts and mini chocolate chips. I love crunch peanut butter, so I really like the combination of crunchy peanut butter with the chopped peanuts.
Also, the mini chips just add a little extra oopmh without making the cookies chocolaty.
Can I use natural peanut butter?
I love natural peanut butter, but I don’t recommend it for this recipe. These cookies really work best with a regular peanut butter.
Do I need to flatten the cookies?
I’ve gently flattened the cookies and made them without flattening. It didn’t seem to make much of a difference either way.
Can I leave the chocolate chips out?
Sure! You can either leave them out or add a little extra of the chopped peanuts.

Rustic Peanut Butter Cookies
Simple, old-fashioned peanut butter cookie recipe
- 1/2 cup butter at cool room temperature
- 1/2 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter not natural
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 cup chopped lightly salted peanuts
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips optional
In a large bowl, beat butter and peanut butter together.
Add sugars, and beat until well-combined.
Mix in egg and vanilla until combined.
Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined.
Stir in chopped nuts and mini chips, if using.
Cover, and chill dough for 1 hour, or until firm.
Toward the end of the chilling time, preheat oven to 350 F.
Scoop out 1.5 tablespoons of dough and place on prepared cookie sheet 2 inches apart. I've slightly flattened the cookies and left them as-is, and it doesn't seem to make much difference.
Bake 10-15 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned and middles are set.
