Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

1/2 cup salted butter, softened

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

3/4 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup quick-cooking oats

1 teaspoons baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup milk chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla for 1 minute on medium-high speed using an electric mixer.
  3. Add the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt to the dough mixture. Beat on medium-low speed until the flour is barely incorporated.
  4. Add in the chocolate chips and mix until evenly distributed.
  5. Scoop cookie dough into heaping tablespoon balls (a cookie scoop works wonderfully for this) on to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicon mat. Flatten the balls so they are 1/2-inch high disks.  Cookies should be 2 inches apart from one another.
  6. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes until golden.  Remove the sheet from the oven and allow to cool on the sheet for 3 minutes.  Remove the cookies from the sheet to a cooling rack.

Enjoy with a glass of milk.
