Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

"This is adapted from a King Arthur Flour recipe. After not having any cookies for awhile because I was avoiding flour for the South Beach Diet...I thought I was in heaven with these! Peanut Butter, Oatmeal AND chocolate chips...YUMMY! My husband took most of them to work and his co-workers devoured them in 10 minutes...and they all wanted the recipe. It's very important to follow the baking instructions and not to overbake them or they'll be hard and not so good. If you choose to use regular brown sugar double it because you use half the amount of Splenda Brown Sugar because it's twice as sweet. ENJOY! *I haven't made these for awhile, but since 2 reviewers are saying baking time is more like 8 minutes, I'm editing the bake time."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets or line with parchment paper.

Step 2

Cream the peanut butter, butter, sugar, vanilla, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl.

Step 3

Beat in the eggs, scraping the bowl once they're incorporated, then ground oats, old fashioned rolled oats and chocolate chips.

Step 4

Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets. (They don't spread much.).

Step 5

Bake the cookies, reversing the pans midway through (top to bottom, bottom to top), until they're barely set and just beginning to brown around the edges, 8-12 minutes depending on the size and your oven. Don't over bake!

Step 6

Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool completely on the pans.

what a success DH said they were the best cookies i've made in ages, they have all his favourite things, peanut butter, chocolate chips and oatmeal!!! I got 45, guess mine were smaller, and mine took 9 minutes to bake. I used the crunchy PB, butter and regular brown sugar, but i only used 3/4 cup of the brown sugar and used a full cup of chocolate chips. Thanks T i will be making these on a regular basis.

These were good tasting but came out a little crunchy and dry. Be careful how long you bake them so you don't make the same mistake I did. About 8-9 minutes should work.

I was concerned that these would not turn out as the dough is fairly thick but they did cook out nicely. I did line the cookie sheets with parchment paper and I'm glad I did as I cooked them for only 8 minutes and they were already brown on the edges. I used the brown sugar and creamy peanut butter variations. I made these for DH's birthday and he enjoyed them. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.
