WEEKEND TREATS  
 We all have those weekends - when you are visiting family and friends and don’t want to arrive empty handed…but don’t know what to bring. 
 Easy. Bake cookies. It’s my go-to gift. 
 This recipe is a spin-off of my  Monster Cookies.  Which, if you have some M&M’s, I highly recommend checking out! 
 
  Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies  
  (Makes about 50 cookies)  
   1 cup sugar   
  1 ¼ cup brown sugar   
  ½ cup unsalted butter  
  1 cup peanut butter  
  ½ tablespoon vanilla   
  3 eggs   
  4 ¼ cups oats   
  ½ cup whole-wheat pastry flour   
  2 tsp. baking soda  
  1 cup milk chocolate chips   
  ½ or 1 cup semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips  
    Directions:   
  - Mix all ingredients together.  First blend the butter with the sugars. Add PB and vanilla.  Add in the rest of the dry ingredients and chips.   
  - Use a cookie scoop to make them uniform.   
  - Bake for around 9 minutes at 350 degrees.  rotate sheets halfway through baking.  Bake until just turning golden.  
  - Let cool on sheet.   
  MY TIP:   Add chips to the top of the cookies right when they come out of the oven. You can also add them when they are almost done baking.
