Chocolate Covered Raisin Peanut Butter Cookies

These Chocolate Covered Raisin Peanut Butter Cookies may be one of the fastest, easiest and most decadent cookies I have ever made. Just don't let their simplicity fool you. There is something magical that happens to these ingredients in the oven. I have converted many non raisin lovers and non peanut butter lovers to this recipe. PLUS, you do NOT NEED FLOUR!

So where did this recipe come from? Well a few years ago, as I was in the midst of making cookies I found that someone in my household had absconded with the chocolate chips. Regardless of my toe tapping, no one owned up to this theft. Luckily I had a "secret stash" left over from Hallowe'en, which I immediately raided in order to complete my recipe.

With a few tweeks since then, I have perfected this recipe and I am proud to share it with all of you.

This recipe makes about 40 small cookies. Enjoy!

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
2 cups Chunky Peanut Butter (The kind with the peanut pieces in it)
1 cup White Sugar
2 eggs
1 cup Chocolate Covered Raisins

Tools You Will Need:

Oven
Fridge (To keep dough cool between batches)
Cookie sheet (Use 2 if you have them available)
Mixing Bowl
Measuring Cup
Spatula or Mixing Spoon
Table spoon to portion out the dough
Oven Mitt
Wire Rack * (For cooling)

* If you don't have a wire rack, you could use the wire shelf from your toaster oven, or you could simply place the cookies to cool onto a plate covered with some paper towel.

Preheat your Oven to 325F

In a mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, sugar and eggs. Mix well. Fold in Chocolate Covered Raisins until distributed.

TIP: If you find your kitchen is on the warm side (like mine was), you should put your mixed ingredients into the fridge for about 5 minutes before you proceed.

Thanks. They are very good. I might make more as I finally got myself a smaller table-top oven to cook stuff in (its like an oversized toaster oven). Best thing ever.
:-)
I hear you about Toaster Ovens.  That's my only baking appliance in Baja... and that's where it is right now!

Have you seen this yet?

No, darn it. I missed another good one. But I just checked it out now. I wouldn't have thought about half those appliances being used outside. Awesome idea.

Thanks sunshiine! yes, these cookies are incredibly fast and easy to make. I hope you and the hubby enjoy them. :)
You are welcome. I am hungry and thought I would take another peek at these.
There I go again. Looking at food first thing in the morning......you girls are killing me.
I am thinking of one that you can't resist. It may surprise you once I figure it out. It will be egg related LOL.

You only need 4 ingredients and you can have a batch of your own. They are super fast and easy to make. Plus they taste even better than they look!

Thank you. They were very good, but didn't last long around here... VERY popular cookies.

Does that's peanut butter say crunchy........in French? Now that's interesting.
canucksgirl (author)  onrust2 years ago
That it does. In Canada we have to "respect the other official language" which happens to be French. As a result, ALL our packaging must include both English text as well as French.

Only four ingredients! amazing.
It is crazy how few ingredients you need! Awesome recipe!

Thanks :D - I know when you first look at the ingredient list, you'd think something is a miss, but that's all you need! They have turned out great every time I've made them, but they never last long. They get eaten pretty quickly around here.
