Recipe type: Dessert

Total time: 
Serves: 36
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups oats (rolled or quick oats)
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoon peanut butter (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350° then sift together flour and baking soda.
  2. In a separate bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter, eggs, sugars, and vanilla.
  3. Combine dry ingredients and wet ingredients by adding the flour mixture to the sugar and butter mixture a bit at a time. The dough will be very stiff.
  4. Add oats until well combined, then add chocolate chips and peanut butter.
  5. Drop onto an ungreased baking sheet. For best results, use a cookie scoop to measure an equal amount for each cookie, and form the dough into slightly flattened puck-like shapes on the tray before placing in the oven.
  6. Bake for 9 – 12 minutes or until golden around the edges.
  7. Allow to cool slightly, then remove to a baking rack to continue cooling.
  8. Best served room temperature or just barely warm.
