Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Choc Chip Oatmeal cookie

One of the perks of being back in the lovely Northwest is the ability to bake! Yup, tried to bake in Colorado and every single try was a failed one. So, of course, as soon as we moved back my baking urges resurfaced. But this time I decided I had to try something new: peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal cookies!

I have never made any sort of oatmeal cookies. Actually, I am not much of an oatmeal person, but I love trying new things (except the ones that put me feet above the ground).

I did some research online until I found a recipe that worked for me. Of course, like with every recipe I make, I did some tweaking (see original recipe here).

Peanut Butter Choc Chip Oatmeal cookie

Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

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

‣ Preheat oven to 350°
‣ In a mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt). Set aside.
‣ In another mixing bowl, cream together the sugars, butter, and vanilla. Mix in the eggs one at a time.
‣ Gradually add the flour. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.** (I found it easier to mix them in with my hands).
‣ Drop by rounded teaspoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
‣ Bake for 12-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool cookies on wire rack.

If you give them a go, let me know!! Hope you like them! 😀 They were delish….!!

* I added an extra ½ cup since I used Coach’s Oats cracked oats.
** Options – Replace chocolate chips for raisins or butterscotch chips. May also add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans.
