If the idea of combining chocolate and peanut butter into crunchy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies creates an instant craving, you’re going to want to make these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies as soon as possible!
Simple flavors are great, but sometimes you just want a little more. Something with lots of flavors that are so, so good together. Something with a little bit of crunch, perhaps. Something like these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies!
These beauties start out as a traditional peanut butter cookies made with crunchy peanut butter for even more peanut flavor. Then come the chocolate chips, because what goes better with peanut butter than chocolate? Toffee bits join the party and bring their signature crunch and flavor. The result is a fantastic, irresistible cookie that instantly became a new favorite around here.
You can tell by all the cookies recipes here at BoB that I love to bake batches and batches of them. I’ve made all kinds of cookies, but I think my favorites are the kinds that are just big celebrations of my favorite flavors. And peanut butter and chocolate rank pretty high on my list of favorites. But what I think makes these really shine is the added crunch from the peanuts and toffee.
I tend to give away the vast majority of the things that I bake. But sometimes there are things that we just can’t stand to see go. We kept a bunch of these irresistible cookies for ourselves and enjoyed snacking on them while Quinn took some time off from work. Luckily, this recipe makes a big batch so you can share some with your friends and still have plenty for yourself!

Will definitely be making these. Sounds and looks delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
These look so cakey and perfect!! Love cookies because I can eat like 20 and convince myself it’s not so bad. How bad for you can an innocent little cookie be? 😉
Those look beautiful! Peanut butter and chocolate is just a match made in Heaven, I’m tellin’ ya! 🙂
These look incredible! If I didn’t want to use the toffee bits do I need to sub in something or can I just omit?…thank you!!
You can just omit them, or use something else in their place to make up the volume.
Adding toffee bits sounds like a great idea! Yum!
As usual, you read my mind. Been looking for a “different” PB cookie to share with some serious PB fans. I love the crunch idea. And a little more complex than your standard chocolate/PB cookie. I look forward to making a few 100 or so. Thanks!!!
I hope you love them like we do, Linda!
Ooo what a great idea to use crunchy peanut butter and toffee! I’ve made peanut butter cookie before with toffee in them and peanuts but I didn’t even think to use crunchy peanut butter. It’s stuck in my head that it must be creamy for baking but that is obviously not true.
oooooooh crunchy pb and toffee chips are a geeenius twist on regular peanut butter chocolate chip cookies! LOVE THESE!
These were in Tuesday’s blag and I made them that day. Wonderful cookies!!! I loved the texture and crunch of the toffee, of course the chocolate and peanut butter were great. Definitely, I will make thses again… my husband love them
I’m glad to hear they were a hit, Jo!
Can I use wheat flour or finger millet flour.. What quantity?
My guess is that you could do a straight substitution of wheat flour. I’ve never used millet flour, so my best recommendation is to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for substitution.
I just made these today and they are EXACTLY what I was looking for! Crispy, chocolaty goodness with a dose of toffee — brilliant! Thank you for the recipe — I’ll come back here the next time I need something new and yummy to bake!
I’m so glad you liked the cookies, Melanie!
Could I use my natural (well stirred ) peanut butter for this recipe?
Hi, Nancy. As a general rule, I don’t recommend baking with natural peanut butters. It might work just fine, but I couldn’t say for sure without testing it.
I just made them with natural organic peanut butter. They taste delicious. Next time I will try another peanut butter just to see the difference.
Thanks for sharing your experience making these cookies with natural peanut butter!
Oh my!! Perfectly good exactly what I wanted.. crisp on the outside soft in the middle ..not too sweet …and dangerously easy to make! I chose to make mine w/o toffee bits was my only adjustment.
I’m glad you enjoyed the cookies, Cherie!
