Peanut Butter, Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies

My dear friend Currié gave me this recipe and my kids and I were so excited to make these cookies together. They were extremely easy to make and tasted so delicious. I loved the peanut butter flavor with the chocolate chips. They were gobbled up quickly in my house and both my kids as well as my husband really, really liked them. Thanks for the great recipe Currié!

Adapted from original recipe by Currié Reese
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal, uncooked
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Using an electric mixer, combine butter and granulated sugar in a large mixing bowl until fluffy. Add peanut butter and brown sugar, beating well until thoroughly combined. Scrape sides of bowl with spatula. Add egg and vanilla then mix until smooth. In a small bowl stir together flour and baking soda, then add to cookie dough and mix just until blended. Using a mixing spoon, stir in oatmeal and chocolate chips.

Scoop balls of cookie dough and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheets. Enjoy.
