the best chocolate chip cookies ever made

Chocolate chip cookies + peanut butter + oatmeal = the best chocolate chip cookies ever made

These cookies are one of my go-to treats whenever I'm in charge of providing a dessert.  So easy and so stinkin' good.  Sadly, I cannot claim any of the glory as I found this recipe on last fall & have not changed one single ingredient. ever. {except to maybe add a few more chocolate chips, because as has always been known since the beginning of time: the more chocolate chips, the better}.  Anyway, these cookies ALWAYS get rave reviews.  I've had people ask me what my "secret" is.  I have no secrets, just a great recipe--that is now yours.

peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal cookies
{aka the best chocolate chip cookies ever made}

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, white sugar and peanut butter until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, wheat flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Finally, mix in the oats and chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 7-8 minutes in the preheated oven.  These cookies don't "look done" quite like other cookies do, so you've got to just trust the 7-8 minute time frame & take them out to cool.
