These peanut butter cookies are delicious on their own, but we make them even better by pressing a piece of dark chocolate candy into each hot cookie right after the cookies come out of the oven.

  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup whole-wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 28 large dark chocolate candy pieces, unwrapped


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. Combine brown sugar, peanut butter, oil, egg and vanilla in a mixing bowl; add water and beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir together all-purpose and whole-wheat flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Stir the dry ingredients into the brown-sugar mixture just until combined.
  3. Using wet hands, roll the dough between your palms into balls, using about 1 tablespoon for each. Flatten each ball into a ½-inch-thick disk. Place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time, until golden, 8 to 9 minutes. Immediately press a chocolate piece into each cookie's center. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • To make ahead: Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
