These may be the best cookies ever. Usually when I make a batch of cookies, I eat one or two and give the rest to Brett to bring to work. It makes the nurses happy, and it seems that happy nurses = happy resident.
However, when I made these cookies for the first time, Brett didn’t get to take any to work. We ate them all. Or rather, I ate most of them. They’re that good.
If you like peanut butter and chocolate, give these a try.
Peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal cookies
recipe from the Brown Eyed Baker
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.
Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt, and set aside.
Using a handheld or stand mixer, cream together the butter, sugars, peanut butter and vanilla extract for about 3 minutes. Add the egg, and beat to combine.
On low speed, gradually add the flour.
Using a wooden spoon, stir in the oats and chocolate chips.
Form the dough into 3-tablespoon or 1.7 ounce rounds, and space about two inches apart on the baking sheet.
Bake for about 10 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown.
Enjoy! These may be my new “go-to” cookies.
