Peanut Butter, Oatmeal & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Do yourself a favor & make these a.s.a.p. today now!!  I bet you have everything that you need in your pantry.  And they are so quick & easy.  But oh man.  They are really, really good.   I mean peanut butter, oatmeal & chocolate could they not be?!?  They are perfectly soft & chewy.  Trust me, you'll be thanking me in about 10-15 minutes when these are coming out of your oven!!
1 cup Flour (All Purpose)
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Butter (1 stick), at room temperature
1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 cup White, Granulated Sugar
1/3 cup Light, Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 egg
1/2 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.  
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda & salt.  Set aside.
With a mixer on medium speed, cream together the butter, peanut butter, both sugars, & vanilla extract, about 3 minutes.
Add the egg & beat to combine.  On low speed, gradually add in the flour mixture until just combined.
Stir in the oats & then the chocolate chips.  I used mini chocolate chips & loved them in it.
Use a large cookie scoop (or about 3 tbsp) & drop onto the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly golden brown.  Take care not to over cook these.  They may not look 'done' when you pull them out but they will continue to cook some as they cool.  
Cool completely on the baking sheet.
This makes about 16, good sized cookies.  I found this wonderful cookie recipe on the Brown Eyed Baker's site.  Check her out, she has lots of other goodies too!!  


  1. Didn't you leave the peanut butter out of the ingredients? How much?

  2. Hummm. That makes it a little difficult to make these, doesn't it?!?! I'm so glad you pointed that out to me!! It's 1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter. Sorry about that!!
