Yesterday morning, while my two older kids were at vacation Bible camp, my youngest kiddo and I decided to make cookies. He is two years old and really starting to become Mr Independent. As I was gathering the ingredients, I look over to see him crawling up the chair and onto the counter. He grabbed the bag of chocolate chips and poured some out for himself. It was quite cute and kept him happy while I made the cookies! I asked him if he wanted to help me and he said “no mama, I eat, you cook” haha!! These cookies turned out great and made a little over three dozen, so we had plenty for everyone!!
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (all purpose works too)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. In a different bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in the peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla. Once combined, slowly add in the flour mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips. Using a spoon or scoop, make about 1/2 inch round balls of cookie dough and place on cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated oven, 350, for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and place on cooling rack!
