These are my family's new favorite chocolate chip cookies. Loaded with the taste of peanut butter and chocolate, it is only bolstered by taste and chewiness of the oats. I also love the fact that there is the goodness of whole grains in the oatmeal rather than being straight white processed flour. The original recipe only called for 1 cup of chocolate chips, but I love chocolate so much, I bumped it up to a full 12 oz bag and it worked out well. Betch ya can't eat just one!!
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 bag semisweet chocolate chips
1) In a mixing bowl, cream butter, peanut butter and sugars; beat in egg and vanilla.
2) Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt.
3) Add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips.
5) Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Removed to cooling rack and allow to cool. Store in an air tight container.
