A delicious cookie mixing peanut butter, oatmeal and white and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
- 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 pinch salt (I use sea salt)
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chip
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar for about 3 minutes, or until creamy.
- Add in the vanilla and egg. Mix until well combined, scraping the sides as you go.
- Add the peanut butter and continue to mix until combined.
- Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until the flour is just combined (don’t mix too long as the dough mixture will begin to get very hard to work with).
- Mix in the oats and chips until just combined (again-do not mix for very long- maybe a quick 10 seconds).
- Using a cookie scoop or spoon, put 12 cookies onto each baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes (12 minutes for chewier cookies). Remove from oven and let cool.
- Repeat the process for the remaining dough.
- Serve with a glass of milk or store in an air tight container once cooled.
You can substitute the 1/2 cup all-purpose and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour for 1 cup all-purpose flour or just 1 cup of whole wheat flour. This depends on your baking preferences. You can substitute the 1 cup brown sugar for white sugar if you desire (the brown sugar gives them a nice dark, rich flavor and color).
