My oh my… these cookies are GOOD! They are so perfect I don’t even know where to begin! They are thick and chewy and gooey and give you energy! What more can you ask for from a cookie? These definitely won’t last long in my house 😉 The perfect after school treat or a pre workout boost. Either way, get in my belly, right now, all of you 🙂
Ok, ok I’ll calm down. Go get your aprons on and start your ovens. This dough does not need any chill time!
What you will need:
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet but you can use whatever you like)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Whisk together the flour, oats and baking soda and set aside. In another large bowl, beat butter and both sugars until creamy. Add peanut butter, eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Slowly beat in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Place on cookie sheet by rounded tablespoons and bake for about 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
