Delicious oatmeal chochip pb cookies!

Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


Makes about 16 cookies

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
½ cup rolled oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

3. On medium speed, cream together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat to combine. On low speed, gradually add the flour until just combined. Stir in the oats, and then the chocolate chips.

4. Use a large cookie scoop (3 tablespoons) and drop dough onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes (mine were 8-9 minutes), or until the cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely on the baking sheet and then store in an airtight container at room temperature.

These are so tasty! Just like my fave pb/chocolate chip recipe already posted but these have a nice chewy addition thanks to the oatmeal. Make sure not to overcook! They set up nicely even if they look a little less than done.

Of course I had to make these, they have PB! They were delicious just like the title says. I didn't add choc. chips. so Brynn would eat them. Super yummy even plain. I might have to double the recipe next time.
