Peanut Butter and Oatmeal

Wanting to make Monster Cookies but without M&M’s on hand, I decided to make another cookie with the same concept. Oatmeal, peanut butter and chocolate.  I added peanuts to the batter and I used whole wheat flour. It makes a hearty oatmeal cookie.


Peanut Butter- Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter

  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup dry roasted peanuts (optional)
