Meridian Foods update – 15.00pm Thursday 26th March.

We are currently experiencing exceptionally high demand for our products and because of this have had to take the extremely tough decision to temporarily close our store while we catch up with orders in our system. Any orders placed before 3pm on Thursday 26th March will still be delivered as soon as possible but please bear with us during this time.

We plan to open again soon and will keep you updated here and on our social media pages.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused and please stay safe and stay at home where possible.

Chunky Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookies

Chunky Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookies

What you need: 

  • 120g butter

  • 200g coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 250g Self Raising Flour
  • 250g milk chocolate roughly chopped
  • 130g Meridian Crunchy Richer Roast Peanut Butter



  1. Heat the oven to 170C. Melt the butter and set aside to cool for a moment. In a large bowl, stir together the sugar and butter, until combined. Add the egg and yolk and continue to mix.

  2. Fold in the flour and when combined fold in ¾ of the chocolate. Briefly stir through ¾ of the peanut butter, leaving swirls visible.
  3. Use a tbsp measure to scoop dollops of mixture onto 2 or 3 non-stick baking sheets, making sure you leave plenty of room for them to expand when they cook.
  4. Poke a clean finger into each cookie to make a well in the centre and drizzle in a little of the remaining peanut butter. Then dot a few pieces of the remaining chocolate over the top of each.
  5. If you’re just cooking half now, put the other half of the cookies into a freezer container and freeze.
  6. Bake the remaining biscuits for 15 mins until they are cooked at the edges but still soft in the middle. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet then transfer to a baking rack.  Keep them in an airtight tin.

When you want to cook the remaining cookies, put the frozen scoops onto an oven tray and cook in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until, like the first batch, they are cooked at the edges but still soft in the middle.
