Easy Sourdough Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Cookies Recipe

Rich and chewy, these cookies are sweet and salty with a hefty sugar coating. Each bite is different due to the peanut butter swirls, which vary in sweetness.


– 1 Cup Unsalted butter soft – ½ Cup cane sugar – 1 Cup Brown sugar – 2 Egg – 2 teaspoon Vanilla extract – ½ Cup Sourdough discard – 2 Cup All-purpose flour – ½ Cup Cacao Powder unsweetened – 1 teaspoon Salt – 1 teaspoon Baking soda – 1 Cup Chocolate chip – ½ Cup Peanut butter organic/runny peanut butter is best for stirring it in!


Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream butter and sugars in a stand mixer or mixing bowl until light and creamy.

Step 1

Add eggs, vanilla, and sourdough refuse and mix well. In another bowl, mix flour, cacao powder, salt, and baking soda. 

Step 2

Combine with wet ingredients in bowl. Mix chocolate chips just until mixed.

Step 3

Stand mixer bowl removal. Add peanut butter to cookie batter and gently stir it in. Peanut butter should be distributed throughout the dough but left in streaks. Do not overmix!

Step 4

Prepare a baking sheet and place cookie dough scoops 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes in preheated oven. 

Step 5

I prefer 10 minutes for this dish. When the cookies are done, the tops should be set and not shining. Let cool on rack and enjoy!
