Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

IMG_2196

I peaked.

Seriously… I should just retire now. I should retire from cookie making.

I’ve literally died and gone to cookie heaven!

This is the best damn cookie I’ve ever made!

Never has a bite of cookie brought me to my knees.

Can you tell I love these cookies!

I originally started out with all intentions to make standard oatmeal cookies. As I started to pull all the ingredients out… I thought to myself “Wait a minute… I don’t even really like oatmeal raisin cookies.” I put the raisins back in the cabinet and pulled out the chocolate chips. Behind the chocolate chips was a huge jar of Jif peanut butter (my husband refuses to eat the all the natural stuff). From this, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies were born.

To scoop out my cookies I use a small ice cream scoop (about 1.5-2 tablespoons). This makes for the perfect seven bite cookie. My husband went nuts over these cookies! They were so good he said I shouldn’t make them for while (cause he’ll eat them all)!

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks butter (softened)
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour (all-purpose flour can be used too)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats (old fashioned oats will work too)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chip cookies

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy (about 5 minutes). Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Add peanut butter, mix until creamy.

Add combined flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.

Use a small ice cream scoop or about 2 tablespoons worth of cookie dough onto ungreased cookie sheet. With your fingers, flattened cookie a little.

Bake for about 13-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Let cool on cookie sheet for about 3 minutes. Transfer to wire rack.

Proceed to enjoy the best cookie you’ve ever had!

    Those cookies combine everything I love in my little mind!

    My cookie heaven would be almond butter, date, and dried cranberry chocolate chip- I think I just thought of an experiment!

    Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

    If it was TRUE cookie heaven, I’d be surrounded by both peanut butter and sugar cookies. That’s the only way I would be happy.

    oooh oooh oooh! thanks for the recipe!

  13. Marisa (Loser for Life) said on January 6, 2010 at 4:13 pm

    Oooh, heavenly 🙂

    I would be surrounded by towers of chocolate chip cookies! Can I throw in brownies, too? 🙂

    Hmmm, I agree, oatmeal cookies are so much better with chocolate chips! I made a similar recipe but it was all oats, no flour – so chewy…I shouldn’t read right now – I’m too hungry!!

  15. Nicole said on January 6, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    Saving that recipe! Any “best damn cookie” recipe is worth saving! I would be surrounded by…white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. Soft, please! 🙂

    Oooh, an oooey-gooey chocolate chip cookie.

    I hope it’s ok, I mentioned your “12 Weeks No Diets” challenge on my blog today.

    That’s the second recipe combining peanut butter and chocolate I see in two days and I am badly starting to crave for that combo. Great cookies! (I do, do love oatmeal in my cookies 🙂 )

    I love how the cookie was still supposed to be cooling on the wire rack but already had a bite mark. 🙂
    I think my ultimate cookie is a rainbow cookie. If that was the only cookie in heaven, I would be fine with it. 🙂
