Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had a midnight baking craving. 

I didn't have enough chocolate chips to do just chocolate chip cookies

So add in peanut butter and oats
leave them just a little bit underdone
for an ooey-gooey, addictive treat

and if you're like me, this batch will be gone within 24 hours

And with peanut butter and oats, this makes an acceptable breakfast, right?
These go really well with iced coffee ;)

What You'll Need:
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
What To Do:
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. Or, with floured hands, roll dough into balls and press flat on top. 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.


  1. In my opinion cookies always make an acceptable breakfast!
