Perfect for an afternoon snack...

...or breakfast. Or both.

This is one of my favorite cookies...because it combines three favorite flavors...and doesn't let raisins come anywhere near the oatmeal.   I've used bittersweet chocolate chips here...which I think is a perfect balance for the sweet peanut butter oatmeal dough...but you can definitely use your favorite type of chocolate chips here.

Enjoy!


Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar, not packed
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup oatmeal (not quick-cooking)
3/4 bag Ghiradelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate baking chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars together until smooth. Beat in the peanut butter, vanilla, and egg until well-blended.

3. In a small mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, stirring just until moistened. Stir in the oatmeal and chocolate chips until combined.

4. On a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet, drop cookie dough by tablespoonfuls. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges of cookies are slightly browned. Cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Looks delish! I agree, raisins don't belong in cookies.
