Peanut butter, walnut, and chocolate chip cookies

Jerry Stratton, May 2, 1996

I thought I’d try mixing rice flour in with this recipe, and then I had a sweet tooth so I threw in everything else as well.

Servings: 8
Preparation Time: 45 minutes


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered maple sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup unbleached white flour
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips


  1. Mix the butters, sugars, and egg well.
  2. Mix in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the walnuts and chocolate chips.
  4. Shape into small 1/2 inch balls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  5. Flatten with the tines of a wet fork.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes.

The rice flour adds a bit of denseness to the cookies that accentuates the maple sweetness and peanut butter. If you don’t have rice flour, or whole wheat flour, any of the flours can be replaced with white flour. The powdered maple sugar can be replaced with powdered white sugar.
