Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe has been my go to Chocolate Chip Cookie quite some time now. I always tweak the recipe for us, but I never seem to manage to write down my changes. I think I am usually to excited for them to come out of the oven to bother writing down what it is I do!  I finally I have my recipe documented and preserved. 

This cookie is simply the perfect cookie...  Oatmeal... Peanut Butter... And Chocolate Chips.. Perfection in a bowl! Even my truckin' man requests these. This weekend when he saw the cookies in the oven, and wanted to know if it was the "good ones"? He doesn't always have rave reviews when I try a new recipe, so he is happy when I make these. Even after he sat down with his cookie from the last batch, I heard "Wow" from the other room. I figured he was "wowing" the new episode of Pawn Stars or Storage Wars, but he was "wowing" the cookie. That is success in my book :)

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies 

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar 
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg, plus 1 egg yolk
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Mix together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

On medium speed, cream together the butter, peanut butter, light and dark brown sugars, and vanilla extract, for about 3 minutes. Add the egg and yolk, beat to combine. On low speed, gradually add the flour mixture until just combined. Stir in the oats, and chocolate chips.

Use a medium cookie scoop and drop dough onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely on baking sheet.

  1. Holy cow, Kris! These look like the 'good ones' to me! I much prefer oats and peanut butter in my cookies to plain chippers! The texture looks so perfect! I was just thinking of you today and thinking that I owe you an email to catch up! Hope you are having a good week! : )

    1. Thanks Anne! I have a new item on my shopping list after reading about your Biscoff Blondies.. I really want to try that Spread. Did you get that at Trader Joe's?

  2. Yum! I had to pin this so I can try it later today. Gotta make mine gluten free though but this is just what I was looking for!

  3. Did you use instant oats or regular oats?

    1. I use regular oats. I feel they give the cookie the best texture!

  4. These are delicious!! Made them 3 times this week. Thank you!

  5. I just made them and they are great. Not too sweet, just right :)
