My husband’s birthday is today. Instead of baking him a cake, I decided it I would surprise him with a batch of scrumptious Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies!

Yes, my husband is a true lover of peanut butter. He loves mixing a spoonful of peanut butter in his yogurt, he spreads it on pancakes, loves peanut butter and chocolate ice cream and also eats it plain, by the spoonfuls. Because he loves peanut butter I was confident he would enjoy a batch of Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies.
It’s funny how something as simple as peanut butter can make someone so truly happy. I’m that way with blueberries. They are one of my favorite things on this planet! 🙂 Some of my favorite blueberry recipes are Blueberry Walnut Bundt Cake, Blueberry Topped Cheesecake, Quick Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins, as well as these 15 Delicious Blueberry Breakfast Recipes and 15 Delicious Blueberry Dessert Recipes.
If you are a peanut butter lover too, then you will probably love Peanut Butter Muffins, Peanut Butter Dip, Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies, No Bake Peanut Butter Protein Bites, and Mini Peanut Butter Bumblebees.
These Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies are exactly that – they are loaded with dry roasted peanuts and peanut butter. I personally like to use natural peanut butter versus peanut butter with sugar or fillers.
(Full disclosure: I am allergic to peanuts so therefore I do not consume them. However, that doesn’t stop me from buying them for my hubby!)
If you’d like to be a bit adventurous, try adding mini chocolate chips in with the crushed peanut topping.
Happy birthday, honey!
