Peanut Butter Cookies with Oats and Chocolate Chips

Hi Everyone! Today's recipe is my husband's favorite cookie recipe, Peanut butter with Oatmeal and chocolate chips! I hope you like these cookies as much as he does!

Makes 2½-3 dozens
  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Old Fashion Oats
  • 1 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter, softened (113grams)
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tablespoons Honey
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
Preheat the oven to 325ºF (for a crispier cookie, preheat oven to 350ºF)

In a large bowl combine the flour, oats, salt, and baking powder, mix well and set aside for a minute.

In an electric mixer on medium speed, cream the butter with the brown sugar until you get a creamy and grainy paste, then add in the Peanut butter, and continue to blend for about 1 minute, until well combined.

Scrape down the sides of the bowl if you need to, then add 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract,  and 1 egg, mix for 30 seconds, then add in the second egg, continue to mix until everything is well incorporated.

Scrape down the sides of the bowl, reduce the speed to low and add in the flour mixture in two parts. Stir on low speed until the flour is combined with the rest of the ingredients. (DO NOT OVER-MIX!!) Turn off the mixer, now add in the chocolate chips, and use a spatula to combine the chocolate chips with the cookie dough. Once the chocolate chips are incorporated with the cookie dough, you can make the cookies.

To make the cookies, spoon about 1 tablespoon of the dough on a baking sheet, leave about an inch of space in between each cookie to prevent them from sticking together.  Keep on repeating this step until  you have all the cookies ready.

Bake them at 325ºF for about 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. (For a crispier cookie, bake at 350ºF)

Transfer them to a cold surface to cool down. Once they are cold, Enjoy!
