Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

December 17, 2012

I've never been a fan of those plain peanut butter cookies everyone always raves about. I love PB&J sandwiches and I'm totally addicted to Reese's cups, but I've never been huge into peanut butter cookies. Paul, on the other hand, is obsessed with them. So I went on the hunt for a peanut butter cookie that had something mixed in for me. These were so good! I liked them so much, I actually made a second batch right away and stuck them in the freezer for my cookie trays. Yum!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes 3-4 dozen cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup quick oats
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

In a mixer, cream together butter, sugars, and peanut butter. Add in egg and vanilla on medium speed. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients until fully mixed. Stir in oats and chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with a glass dipped in flour, or a fork in a criss-cross pattern if desired. Bake at 375 for 6-9 minutes, until edges begin to brown. Cool on wire racks.

  18. Any gluten free? saw this on Google+ but of course I can't eat them. They look good.

  19. I'm sorry Pepper, I don't really do gluten free here! I have to admit, I'm not really knowledgeable in that area. Are there substitutions you could make?

  20. I made these cookies last night; while they're tasty, they are quite dry. The dough did not hold together well both before and after cooking. If I were to make them again (and I might because they really are yummy), I would probably add another 4T of butter.

  21. Oh, I'm sorry they were too dry for you Melanie! They are a drier cookie, but I haven't had problems with the dough holding together. If you do add the butter, be sure to let me know how it turned out!

  22. First batch is in the oven. Super excited and they smell amazing! Thanks for the recipe.

  23. They are sweet, flaky, light and delicious. My kids went through a half dozen in 10 minutes!

  24. These turned out great!! Thanks for the recipe!
