Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls

They may look umimpressive, but it's a natural disguise. Really, they're addictive.

Apparently Annie the Baker makes these things called Cookie Dough Balls.  And then Mama Pea tried to replicate them in a vegan-friendly way.  Since we all know that “Earth Balance” is not in my vocabulary and I am only a dabbler in organic food as it conveniences me, the recipe below is what happens if you follow the concept of the recipe, but then you really don’t.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/8 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/8 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 t vanilla
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t baking soda
  • 3/8 t salt
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Cream butter, peanut butter, and vanilla
  • Combine all dry ingredients (excluding chocolate chips) in a separate bowl
  • Mix wet and dry bowls together until it forms a dough (for me, this was an extremely dry and crumbly dough)
  • Stir in chocolate chips, form into log and refrigerate for 30 minutes
  • Roll dough into golf ball-sized balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.  You’ll end up with ~13 balls.
  • Bake for 10 minutes and remove from oven.  Transfer to cooling rack immediately.
  • Allow to cool for ~15 minutes (trust me on this)

Note: You can probably get away with regular peanut butter if you want.  Absolutely, do not under any circumstances over-bake these.
