Recipe of the Week: Peanut Butter, Oats & Chocolate, Oh My!

Are you a fan of peanut butter, chocolate chips, oatmeal? Well these are most definitely for you! Such a wonderful combination of smooth peanut butter, a toasted oat flavor with a touch of sweet chocolate. The texture is perfectly crisp on the outside with a chewy indulgent middle. This scrumptious recipe is from one of my favorite baking bloggers Brown Eyed Baker, make sure to take a peak at all her other fabulous recipes!

Peanut Butter & Oats Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
½ cup all natural creamy peanut butter (I used Skippy)
½ cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
½ cup oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl; set aside.

3. On medium speed, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract, about 2 minutes. Add peanut butter and mix together for another minute. Add the egg and beat to combine. On low speed, gradually add the flour until just combined. Stir in the oats, and then the chocolate chips.

4. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely on the baking sheet and then store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Note: The cookies will not look 100% “done” when you pull them out of the oven, but they will continue to bake on the hot baking sheet once taken out of the oven. If they are slightly brown, and are puffy in the middle they are ready to come out promise :)

Makes about 18 cookies
