Oatmeal, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a recipe that I used to make a lot when my husband and I first got married. I didn't really know how to bake -or do anything well- back then. Wanting to bring something not out of a box to functions we would attend, I attempted this recipe and it turned out to be a success. How can you resist oatmeal, peanut butter, and chocolate all in one cookie? It's definitely best to bake these for somebody else and get them out of the house because they are not  "I'll only have one and walk away" cookies.


Oatmeal, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 c butter (1 1/2 sticks)
  • 3/4 c peanut butter
  • 1 1/4 c packed brown sugar

  • 1 1/2 c granulated (white) sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/4 c all purpose flour
  • 2 2/3 rolled oats
  • 1 (10 oz) pkg - or 2 cups- chocolate chips

Directions:

    Beat butter and brown sugar in mixing bowl until creamy. Add sugars, baking soda, and baking powder. Beat until combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Beat in flour. Stir in rolled oats with a wooden spoon. Fold in chocolate chips.

    Drop dough onto ungreased cookie sheet 3 inches apart. Bake 8 minutes. Transfer to wire rack and cool.


    Happy Baking!!
