Oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

March 13, 2011 § 2 Comments

The best of all things that should be in a cookie. Thanks Nick for making these scrumptious treats!

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, or until the cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely on the baking sheet and then store in an airtight container at room temperature.

    Mmm, these sound fantastic! Do you use ‘natural’ peanut butter (with no sugar), or do you use something with sugar already in (like Skippy)?

      Skippy natural. Best of both and surprisingly ATK approved. I can never get the totally natural peanut butters to work in anything I want to eat for dessert…
