These peanut butter chocolate cinnamon cookies are easy to make and need no professional cooking experience. So call the kids into the kitchen, break open a bag of flour and in 30 mins you can all sit down to watch your favorite show with some wonderful home made cookies.

24 large cookies


  • 2 Cups plain flour

One of the earliest uses of "Peanut Butter" in a cookie recipe was back in 1913 found in a recipe in the Newark Sunday Call of Newark. The recipe entitled "Prune peanut butter cookies" and yes it contained prunes.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. In a medium sized bowl mix the dry ingredients together. Flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, ground cinnamon.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the butter at room temp. and peanut butter until creamed together. Add the sugars and mix well then add the eggs one by one until blended.
  3. Keep mixing while adding the flour a little at a time. When all the flour is mixed in finnish off by adding the vanilla.
  4. Add your roasted peanuts and chocolate and fold in well to distribute the ingredients.
  5. Place a dessert spoon of mixture on a baking sheet about 2" apart as they will spread and bake for around 15 mins or until golden brown. Remove and allow to cool.

Will be waiting for the Blinged Hub :-))

I followed the hub with tips from missolive and she has another hub on free image sites. I can´t remember which one exactly but i got it from a link from that hub. The composite photos was an idea after looking through my Jamie Oliver cook books, this is a style he has used in a recent book. Have a go vespawoolf its fun to see your hub change face with a new style.

Thanks Suzie HQ They are amazingly tasty cookies and will keep the family going. The layout was all thanks to the hub of missolive that inspired me to experiment a little more. The photos are my personal ones. Appreciate your encouragment to produce other higher quality hubs. Votes and pinning appreciated. Have a great day.

I love peanut butter and chocolate together. I would have never thought of adding cinnamon to the mix, great idea! This sounds like a great recipe for the older grandchildren to make. Thanks for the recipe! Voted up and useful. :)

Thanks for your support kitkat1141, Glad you like the photos and have a go throwing in a touch of cinnamon the next time you make a batch to see what you think.

lemonkerdz (author) from LIMA, PERU on March 07, 2013:

I have to admit they are i sit here chewing on one :-)

lemonkerdz (author) from LIMA, PERU on March 07, 2013:

Please do it makes such a difference. I´ve had the cookies without cinnamos but it makes a huge taste difference. please let me know what you think after making them

Rogene Robbins on March 07, 2013:

I add cinnamon to a lot of baked goods. I'm sure it's very good in these cookies, will have to give them a try.

Vespa Woolf from Peru, South America on March 07, 2013:

I'm glad it's paying off! Could you please share on which photo site you found the chocolate, cinnamon and peanut images? I'd been considering doing something similar, more like the food blogs.

Beth37 on March 07, 2013:

Um... that just sounds so good.

Suzanne Ridgeway from Dublin, Ireland on March 07, 2013:

Hi lemonkerdz,

Gorgeous recipe which had me at peanut butter and chocolate! Your creative layout and use of fonts is stunning. Great easy to make cookies which look and sound yummy! Love the photos you used, made it so visual. Great work, votes+++, shared and pinned!

kitkat1141 from Ontario, Canada on March 07, 2013:

Sounds great! I never thought of peanut butter and cinnamon together. I like your photos too.

lemonkerdz (author) from LIMA, PERU on March 07, 2013:

Comments much appreciated Vespawoolf, To be honest i have never been a fan of peanut butter but am getting into it, and as for the cookies? in 2 days 2 batches have flown out of the oven! what does that tell you!

Thanks for the votes and the effort of experimenting on a new layout is paying off :-))

lemonkerdz (author) from LIMA, PERU on March 07, 2013:

Hope you do try them soon Grinning Gremlin, i have made 2 batches of these recently. One batch was for a lunch with 25 people, i was worried they may not like the cinnamos but they devoured all the cookies. Cinnamos just adds a depth of flavour. Go on give em a go :-)

Grinning Gremlin from Ontario, Canada on March 06, 2013:

I normally hate cinnamon, but this looks delicious. Great photos, and I'll be trying this soon.

Vespa Woolf from Peru, South America on March 06, 2013:

Wow, I am blown away by this recipe (I love peanut butter cookies) and by the photos and layout of your Hub. Simply beautiful. Voted up, shared and pinned!
