Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

From the left, Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies,
If you love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter and soft and chewy cookies, then these are the cookies for you! While these aren't the prettiest cookies (they are very flat and fragile), they are very delicious. The bitterness of the cocoa and the sweetness of the peanut butter chips makes these cookies irresistible. Grab a cold glass of milk (preferably almond milk) and enjoy!

2 cups all-purpose flour* 
3/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
2 and 1/2 sticks butter (softened) 
2 cups sugar
2  eggs 
2 teaspoons vanilla 
1 and 2/3 cups peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt, and set aside.
Beat butter and sugar with mixer on medium-high until light and fluffy.
Add eggs and vanilla, and beat well.
Gradually add flour mixture, and beat well. (Dough will be very sticky.)
Stir in peanut butter chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets at least 2 inches apart.
(Cookies will spread while baking.) 
Bake for 8 - 9 minutes. 
Cool on cookie sheets for a few minutes and carefully remove to wire racks.
(Cookies will be very soft and fragile when done. They will also flatten while cooling.)

*If you prefer your cookies less flat, increase flour by 1/4 to 1/2 cup.
