Oatmeal peanut butter, chocolate chip cookies

Here is another new cookie recipe I found.  This one comes from brown eyed baker.  She had lots of cookie recipes that would be fun to try.  These interested me because they were a bit of everything.  Oatmeal, chocolate chips, and peanut butter.  They were great.  My problem with trying to judge a cookie is that I'm a cookie monster.  They are a total weakness of mine.  These were wonderful cookies, but they had so little oatmeal, I'm not sure you can call them and oatmeal cookie.  I also have to say I liked the chocolate chip cookies I tried the other day better than these, but that is not to say they were bad.  They are delicious.  I just liked the other ones a bit better.

  • 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.
