This recipe is for some delicious peanutbutter-oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies.
Here's what you'll need:
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup peanutbutter
1-2 eggs (use two eggs if you use natural peanutbutter)
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup of white flour
1/4 cup of whole wheat flour
3/4 cup of oats
1 tsp baking soad
1/2 tsp salt
Step 1: Step 1 & 2: Start With the Wet Stuff.
1. Before the wet stuff; preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
2. Soften the butter for about 10 seconds in the microwave; then cream together the butter, white and brown sugar and peanutbutter.
Step 2: Step 2: Crack Those Eggs
Add the vanilla and egg(s). If you're using a natural peanutbutter, you'll need two eggs. If you're using JIF or Skippy, the added oil will give you enough moisture for the dough.
Step 3: Step 3: Add Flours
Add the flour, baking soda and salt. If you're looking to add just a tiny bit of health to these cookies, sprinkle in some wheat germ (not more than 2 tablespoons).
Mix it up.
Step 4: Step 4: Chocolate!
Now add the oatmeal and chocolate chips. We use Nestle Dark Chocolate Chips - they're new and they're awesome! They're also a bit larger than normal chocolate chips. If you're making these into mini-cookies or cookie bites, use a regular sized semi-sweet chocolate chip or mini-chips.
Step 5: Step 5: Bake and Anticipate
Drop by balls into a cookie sheet. These cookies won't spread, so use a fork to punch them down a bit.
Bake for 12-14 minutes. The center will not look done, but take them out anyway. They'll be deliciously crunchy on the outside and slightly chewy on the inside.
Step 6: Step 6: Serve & Enjoy
After cooling, pour a glass of ice-cold milk and start dunkin'!
