Last week I decided it was time to branch out from my typical chocolate chip cookie recipe and try something a bit different. I knew I wanted to use peanut butter, so I went to All Recipes to see if I could find a recipe that incorporated peanut butter and chocolate chips. I printed out the Baker’s Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies recipe, but changed it to use chocolate chips instead. My only complaint is that it didn’t make a large enough batch!!! Next time, I may double the recipe so that I can have more to share (or consume! 🙂
1 cup flour
1 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Mix flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside. Beat butter, sugars and peanut butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing until well blended after each addition. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough, two inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for ten minutes or until lightly browned. Cool one minute on baking sheet; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
