Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies
I have a SERIOUS weakness for big, thick, hearty cookies. Give me ALL THE oats and peanut butter! Throw in chocolate chips and you have one amazing cookie — the kind you want to have a BIG cup of cold milk with and are secretly eating 3 or 4 in one sitting!
These cookies deliver on all that goodness! Give them a try and I promise they will become a regular treat in your home!
What you need:
1 c. real butter (2 sticks) – room temperature
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 T. vanilla extract
1 c. peanut butter
1 1/4 c. quick oats (you can use old fashioned oats; but I prefer the smaller texture of the quick cooking)
2 1/4 c. flour
1 t. salt
2 t. soda
2 c. chocolate chips (1 – 12 oz bag)
Preheat oven to 350°
Cream butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Mix in peanut butter. Add flour, oats, salt & soda. Stir just until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Portion out into large scoops of dough about 2″ apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Cook for 12 -15 minutes until slightly brown and just set in the middle. Cookies will flatten and start to crackle when ready to pull from oven.
Allow to rest on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before putting on cooling rack.
