As some of you are aware, earlier in the year Steve and I went to America for a prostate cancer conference. Eating American food was certainly a whirlwind in cultures, but they LOVE their pretzels! Everything had pretzels! Well maybe not, but most things did. 😉 So when I tasted a peanut butter and pretzel cookie I was like – Oh wow I must have these on my blog! So here is my thermomix choc chip peanut butter & pretzel cookie.
If you don’t have pretzels or you don’t like them – they can be made without them. These would be great for an after school snack when the kids jump in the car or walk through the door – screaming they are hungry!
Also, considering it’s school holidays – kids (age & skill permitting) can get in the kitchen and whip these up!
