Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips ( I used 1/2 cup mini, 1/2 cup regular)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.  

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

In a large stand mixer bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.  Add the vanilla extract and egg and beat to combine.  Add the flour and mix just until combined.  Add the oats and chocolate chips and mix until distributed evenly.

Use a 2 oz. cookie scoop and drop dough about 2 inches apart.  Makes about 22 cookies.  Bake for 10 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden brown.  Let cool completely on baking sheets.  Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.  Enjoy!
