Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Submitted by Heather

These cookies are wonderful!  They're definitely on my list of favorites.  Peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate...what a great combination in a cookie.  Every time I make them, they bake up nice and thick and have such a delicious flavor.  I used chunky peanut butter, so I think the 'peanutty' flavor was upped even more by the fact that there were chunks of peanuts in the cookie.  My kids loved these and I refuse to admit the embarrassing number of them I ate during "quality control" testing.  
Makes about 32 cookies

2 C. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 C. butter, at room temperature
1 C. peanut butter, creamy or chunky
1 C. sugar
2/3 C. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 C. rolled oats
2 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips or M&Ms or peanut butter chips (I used all three)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silpats and set aside.
2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
3. On medium speed, cream together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat to combine. On low speed, gradually add the flour until just combined. Stir in the oats, and then the chocolate chips/M&Ms/peanut butter chips.
4. Use a large cookie scoop (3 tablespoons) and drop dough onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely on the baking sheet and then store in an airtight container at room temperature.
