I don’t think I’ve ever made anything more addicting than these cookies. You have been warned…
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. If you don’t have parchment paper don’t use aluminum foil because it’s useless, just oil your pans down with some coconut oil.
Here we are sifting our dry ingredients with a fine mesh strainer. If you don’t have a fine mesh strainer, you’re a loser, but the recipe will work anyway.
Now for the wet ingredients, in a separate bowl, whisk them together.
Then add your wet into your dry and mix together.
Finally add peanuts and chocolate chips and stir to combine.
With a mini ice cream scoop, or if you don’t have that, you should get one because you will be making these every day for the rest of your life, or you can use your stupid hands. Form into little balls on a parchment lined baking sheet like so. Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with come coarse sea salt, if you choose not to do this because you think it won’t come out good, you’re the worst, and you shouldn’t even be making these right now.
Then place them in your oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, be sure not to cook them too long because then tend to burn easily. I think it’s because of the cocoa powder, don’t yell at her, she’s very sensitive.
Here’s the final product:
Here is the whole recipe without the nasty commentary, although I prefer yelling at you step by step because it’s more fun.
